I have a 7" Android tablet for about 3 years, its aging so I'll get a replacement soon. I never owned a laptop and tablets 8" and under are easy to type on without a physical keyboard, and battery life is better than most laptops. So tablets suit my portable computing needs really well.
However I understand how some say "I have a laptop I don't need a tablet".
1) Do u have a tablet computer?
2) If yes, what model / size do u have and what do u use it for? If no, what about tablets turn u onto or off of buying them?

I don't have one but my mom has a 7 inch tablet and I really like it. When I got a job at the end of the year I want to buy myself one cause it's really convenient for book lovers like me. Kindles are so expensive here. Plus I like that I can use apps on tablets like Pinterest and stuff. However I probably want a tad bigger one. So maybe 8 inches or so :)1

Here's how I get by:
For travel purposes, I use a Dell Inspiron 13 7000 series 2-in-1. It does almost everything my desktop at home does (an HP Pavilion p6540y). And does most things a lot faster than my desktop can, since the desktop, while well-maintained, is still an aging device and is slowly starting to show its age. If I can squeeze another four years of life out of the desktop before replacing it, that would be really good.
The laptop, I try to use sparingly, so it'll last me a long while. (And will hold me up when the desktop dies until I can get another one.)
I mostly use the laptop on travel for Facebook, MAA, wiki editing, and anything else I can't do with a tablet.
When all I wanna do is check the TVGuide listings, play a few games that don't require Flash Player, check my mail, or do other really simple tasks, I use a Kindle HDX 7" tablet.
I'm wishing I'd bought a Nook, as it's more powerful and can even run Firefox. But the Kindle does most of what I need it to do at bare minimum - including editing Word documents. And it's a good companion when shopping or running around town, as it's tolerated more than a clumsy laptop and even fits in my jacket pocket.0
