How To Buy a Tablet: Shopping Guide
Sam's Club carries many types of electronics at members-only prices. If you're shopping for a new Apple iPad or other types of tablets, you're in the right place.
What is a Tablet?
A tablet is a wireless, portable computer with a touchscreen interface. Unlike e-readers, the best tablet to buy is a solid blend between a smartphone and a laptop computer. With the ability to connect to Wi-Fi, tablets are able to take photos, upload and download documents, make phone calls, send messages, record video and perform other day-to-day tasks. Tablets are smaller in size than a notebook computer, typically less than 10 inches.
You should buy a tablet if you are looking for more convenience in your technology. An Apple iPad mini has a larger screen and can perform a lot of the same tasks as an iPhone. Tablets are smaller devices that can perform some of the same tasks as a laptop. Depending on your need for the tablet - entertainment, design, work or gaming - Sam's Club has an excellent selection, and they're all available at members-only prices.
