How to Select a Tablet

There are a few different elements to consider when choosing your tablet PC.  The biggest factors are:

  • What screen size do you want?
  • Which operating system you want to select?
  • What kind of processor, memory and disk size do you want?

Tablet Screen Sizes

The majority of tablet screens are either about 7 inches or 10 inches in diameter. But there is a lot of variation in screen quality – how accurate the touch screen is, and the resolution of the image.  Resolution is measured in pixels per inch (PPI) while the accuracy depends on how many touch points are monitored.  MicroPro ® can help you assess which screen size and quality meets your needs.

Which Operating System?

There are 3 main tablet operating systems – Android tablets, from brands such as Toshiba and Samsung; Apple’s iPads; and Windows based tablets from Microsoft and vendors including HP. The operating system determines how your tablet looks and operates, and it also affects which apps (programs) you can access. If you know which operating system you want we can help you identify a high quality tablet. If you are not sure, our MicroPro ® team can explain the options simply and clearly and provide advice on which to choose.

Processor, Storage, and Battery Life

The performance of a tablet is determined by the speed of its processor (the tablet’s “engine”), the amount of storage it has, and its battery life.  Your choice will depend on how you plan to use the tablet (e.g. for gaming, watching videos, email etc.). The staff at MicroPro ® can show you a range of options so you can compare performance and price across tablets and brands.
