The sale of tablets has been in decline for years, according to data from the International Data Corporation (IDC), this trend reversal is due to the fact that, with the restrictions caused by COVID-19, people are looking at tablets, once again, as an alternative form of entertainment, working and studying from home without covering the cost of a computer.
What type of tablet should I buy?
Obviously, buying a tablet does not mean that its only purpose is studying. The perfect panorama would be to find the tablet model that gives you the best of both worlds: allowing you both to study and do university work, as well as surfing the web or watching TV series in your moments of rest. However, there are some tablets that are more attractive to students given their characteristics and functionalities (and cheaper than a computer of course!). Read on to find out which tablet fits you better.
