Ultrabook laptops and Apple's MacBook Air really challenge the tablet market for students, offering a huge boost in performance while closing the gap on the difference in size and weight between a laptop and a tablet. Where an iPad 2 weighs about 650 grams, an 11-inch MacBook Air weighs less than double this, at 1.08kg. A MacBook Air also comes with USB connectivity, a full-sized keyboard and a higher resolution display on top of its more powerful processing capabilities. There's no doubt that an iPad 2 or Samsung Galaxy Tab make lustworthy accessories for students, but if you really want to knuckle down and work hard at school you should give tablets a miss, for now.
An iPad or Galaxy Tab may seem like the perfect study companion to many students in 2012, but I'd argue that they are not yet up to the task, When I was a boy, buying supplies before starting the school year involved choosing a shade of tartan pencil case and grabbing a multi-pack of Bic biros, When my dad was a boy, school involved walking 10 miles through the snow without shoes, apparently, These days, back-to-school preparations iphone screen guard 5s seem to be a lot more high tech, and in 2012 it's highly likely many soon-to-be studying students are considering picking up an iPad or Android tablet to slip into their backpacks, Though I can see the appeal in this approach, I'd caution against it..
Not that there isn't a lot to love about the tablet-style of computers, especially the iPad. With 60,000 iPad-specific apps available (at last count) and over half a million iOS apps in total, there is a lot of educational potential on that platform. Apple's iTunes U service is phenomenal in its scope — offering access to lectures and course resources from universities around the world — that it is almost worth picking up an iPad for, if it wasn't also available through any PC or laptop as well.
CNET también está disponible en español, Don't show this again, Earlier reports pegged this tough, tiny Android-powered toy as winging its way to our high streets in February, But don't be too disheartened, Motorola fans, for when it finally shows up, the Defy Mini will be sporting a pocket-pleasing 3.2-inch touchscreen, and will be resistant to water, dust and scratches, Jolly good, Elsewhere the specs are little more than modest -- the Defy Mini will be rocking a 600MHz processor, and this burly iphone screen guard 5s smart phone's snapper sports a mere 3-megapixel resolution..
Still, this isn't a mobile built to astound with high-end specs, but rather survive a trip to the Arctic, then make a call to Interpol as you hang-glide off a cliff with ancient treasures stuffed in your rucksack, to let them know you've left a gang of notorious smugglers tied up in the centre of the forbidden temple you just escaped from. Also it might survive being dropped in your pint. But take note -- Motorola's party-fuelled ads for the bigger Motorola Defy were banned last year and branded misleading, after three people claimed they'd been left with cracked screens having dropped their Defys.
