Tablets are already with us, and the truth is that many of us are really addicted to our BlackBerry, but these devices, even though they are sleek and feature rich, can’t match the sheer computing power that is there in laptops. You still need a laptop if you are going to create content. A good travel laptop must be light and small. It should have a powerful processor that is of capable supporting heavy computing work while not squandering valuable battery life. It should be strong enough to withstand a few bumps and falls that they are sure to encounter on the road.
