Top Stories tablets
Dear Lifehacker, I’m just starting my second year of university and my home laptop is too bulky to take with me. I’m on the hunt for a secondary laptop but since I’m a full-time student, I’m on a bit of a budget. I don’t have too many requirements — just that it is smaller, has long battery life, fits at least 2 USB ports and runs relatively smoothly. I’m really struggling to make a decision here. Any suggestions?
Apple’s iPad Pro and Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4 look a lot alike. Both are big tablets, both connect to slim keyboard covers and both offer a stylus for drawing and note-taking. But after spending some time with these potential laptop replacements, I found that they’re really quite different, particularly when it comes to productivity.
These days, most tablets and laptops come with unique hardware applications (some would call them “gimmicks”) in an attempt to stand out from the crowd. It might be a fancy 3D camera, a battery extender or even an inbuilt projector. Usually, it’s entirely unproven technology that could prove useful… or it might be a flash in the pan. Lenovo is looking to eliminate this uncertainty with the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. Instead of saddling itself to one feature, it offers a choice of three clip-on modules to suit the needs of different customers. Or you can sit on the fence and ignore them all.
Google has launched the Pixel C, the first tablet created specifically for Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Here are the official specs and pricing for Australia.
At first glance, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 resembles a throwback to tablets of old — it’s small, deliberately plain and lacks a detachable keyboard. However, beneath its unobtrusive design lies a great pygmy workhorse that’s perfect for productivity on the go. It’s also one of the thinnest tablets we’ve ever laid eyes on (if you care about that sort of thing.) Read on for our full review!
We live in a world where bring-your-own-device (BYOD) is a fact of life for IT managers, but that doesn’t eliminate the need to secure and manage those devices. Here’s how using a 2 in 1 makes that easier.
