Benefits

Three of the main benefits to using a tablet PC include mobility, versatility, and productivity. The tablet PC enables greater mobility by allowing you to hot-dock in and out of your desktop peripherals, such as keyboards and monitors, in a matter of seconds. If you’re rushing to a meeting, you can quickly undock the tablet PC and take it with you without having to worry about shutting down and rebooting, and carrying your mouse and power cord. The other features that enable mobility include the longer battery life, the wireless connectivity, the onscreen keyboard, and the generally lighter weight of the device when compared to traditional laptops. Tablet PCs commonly weigh just three pounds or less, and battery life is often up to eight hours. For example, the Fujitsu Stylistic ST4000 Series Tablet PC weighs 3.2 pounds and has a battery life up to four and one-half hours.

On the versatility side, the tablet PC provides two new ways to interact that are more natural than the traditional mouse and keyboard interaction. You can use a digital pen and write directly onto the screen, use speech recognition to dictate your comments, or a combination of both. You can also use an onscreen keyboard as another data entry method if you’re away from your regular keyboard and don’t want to use the handwriting or speech recognition.
