What to consider when buying a tablet on Black Friday

iPad, Android or Windows?

A tablet's operating system plays a pivotal role in defining what it's capable of. Apple's iPads typically offer the slickest and most streamlined experience of the bunch, but they also lack some of the versatile features and deep customisation available on other platforms. Android tablets are usually the cheapest options on the market, packing more power and flexibility than a similarly-priced iPad albeit without the promise of everything "just working" as it typically does on an Apple product.

Windows tablets are mostly for folks who want all the functionality of a fully-fledged PC in a more-portable form factor. You'll typically pay more for a Windows-based tablet, but you'll have access to all the programs, tools and even games that you would on a regular desktop PC while you're on the go.

Screen size

Bigger isn't always better when shopping for a tablet. True, large displays are great for streaming movies and playing games, but all that extra bulk comes at the expense of portability. Not only that, bigger screens consume more power, so you'll typically get less battery life out of a 10-inch tablet compared to a slimmer 7-inch one. Since portability is a defining characteristic of a tablet, making sure that its battery will last long enough for your needs is vital when comparing your options.
