  • Whether you get a laptop or tablet for university depends on your area of study, the activities you will do with the device, and how much power you need for tasks. For simple word processing, many online classes and casual internet browsing, tablets are perfect.

To get the best of both worlds, consider a 2-in-1 device like Microsoft Surface.
