Tablet screens are like a canvas to work with, and if you go bigger, you have extra real estate to see what you’re doing. That makes it easier to see important data, either for reference or to edit yourself. Since the first iPad in 2010, tablet apps are not only far more optimized and sophisticated, they’re also more varied and specialized. It also doesn’t matter as much anymore what kind of work you need to do.
Tablets come in a wide variety of screen sizes. You can go smaller, like with an 8.3-inch iPad Mini or as high as the 14.6-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 Ultra. Use either one as a video conferencing tool, freeing up your computer screen for other tasks, especially if you’re collaborating on a project or assignment.
Today, you can use a tablet as a second screen, integrating it into your desktop or laptop experience. Apple has such a feature called Sidecar working with Macs to extend the computer screen to the iPad. Samsung has a similar feature with Windows computers using its tablets. The Microsoft Surface Go can also work with Windows computers as a second screen. These solutions can work wirelessly, giving you some wiggle room in how you integrate them, meaning you can pull the tablet in for a closer look, or disconnect it to work on something else.
