I saw these things online on Amazon. Com named Internet Tablets and I would like to get one for my mom but I kinda don’t have an idea exactly what an internet tablet is, so does anyone know what an internet tablet is? Is it something that I can use to go online to Google and Yahoo and surf the internet with and go to MS Word and Excel with just like I would with my home computer or laptop. After speaking to others on the web, I found the answer. It depends, a Tablet PC is a touchscreen portable computer. Depending on how much you spend depends on what it will do. There are cheap devices that run small OS’s just for accessing the internet. There will be no support for flash player so no youtube or anything. There are then more expensive tablets running Android, or the Apple iPad. These will allow you to browse the web just as you can on a computer. And you can also run little programs, named apps on it too. These aren’t as complex as computer software, so don’t expect something like Microsoft Office, but can be little games, music players. . Things like that. Then at the top there are tablets running Windows. These are just portable computers with a touchscreen. You can use it exactly like a computer, install any software you could on your desktop or laptop PC. If you want my advice, I’d say buy a netbook PC if you are looking for a portable computer. They are more usable. Tablet PCs are more of a toy and not exactly designed for real work on. A netbook will allow you to work and play.
