When purchasing a tablet PC, you should factor in the cost of the various Apple accessories you will also need. You can’t simply buy a tablet PC, carry it with you everywhere, and expect it not to get scratched or damaged, for example. Additionally, you’ll probably want it to be a bit more functional than the default “out of the box” status. That’s where the following accessories for your tablet computer will come in handy.
Tablet PCs aren’t cheap so spend the extra money for a case to protect it. The number one thing to guard against is scratches. With the whole thing basically being one big screen, you don’t want to end up with scratches all over it, do you? Tossing your sleek new tablet in your bag with your keys, pens, loose change and whatever else is a sure-fire way to destroy your screen in no time.
You can buy cheap cases for under 10 bucks. But why would you when you’ve just shelled out a couple of hundred for your tablet? Most cases are between $20 and $50. Spend the extra money. There are plenty of stylish leather cases and many of them fold back to work as a kind of stand (ideal for watching movies!) There are even waterproof cases, but I’m not sure I’ll be taking mine in the pool or the bath anytime soon, personally.
Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of tablet pcs is not being able to type very easily. Yes, there’s a keyboard that comes up on the screen with all the accessories for iPad, but you don’t want to be doing an extended amount of typing with it. The portability of a tablet is fantastic, but if you’re going to be typing a lot, it might be worth investing in a portable external keyboard.
Make sure the tablet you’re considering buying is configured to accept an external keyboard dock. If not, you might like to review your options again. If so, you should be able to purchase one fairly inexpensively. Some models may even be compatible with a standard wireless keyboard. Check with the manufacturer.This varies quite a lot across the different models of tablet PCs. Some make it very easy to transfer your photos using USB or some other standard technology whereas others require the purchase of additional accessories. As with the external keyboard, make sure you are clear on whether you need to buy any extras if you plan to take a lot of pictures with your tablet (or need to add pictures to your tablet).
