    Default What do you use your tablet for?

    I have 2 Android tablets Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 and the Galaxy Tab 2 7(As a back up) and a powerfull 11.6 inch Windows 8 tablet Acer Iconia W700(I5 core).

    I use my Acer Iconia W700 just to:

    Edit my Youtube videos and upload to Youtube.
    Surfing the web
    Watching videos
    Reading the news
    Downlading Files, Videos

    On my Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 i do:

    Light Gaming(Angry Birds, Labyrinth, Racing, Soccer Rally, more)
    Surfing the web
    Watching videos
    Read the news
    Checking emails
    Checking the weather
    Write scripts for my Youtube videos
    Record my Youtubs videos using the rear camera(8MP)

    So what leaves my gaming Windows 8 laptop = i only really use it for hardcore gaming like FIFA sometimes and it is a back up for my file storage.

    It is safe to say my tablets have replaced my laptop for most of the time.

    What tablet do you have? What do you use your tablet for?

    Tablets will never replace a good desktop for me until project ara allows for tablets that are upgradable and can run the same stuff at the same frame rate as desktop computers.

    My current tablet is used for reading, watching videos, and as a "second monitor" when needed.

    For me? Basic web surfing, Android based games and basic communication with certain friends. By no means has this replaced my desktop or laptop. I still fit it in my day to day just fine though.

    I have a Note 10.1 and Nexus 7 (both original versions). The Nexus 7 has been relegated to a bedside alarm clock and the Note 10.1 is used primarily for casual web browsing (ex. reading content), e-mail, occasional video (ex. YouTube), and the NFL Sunday ticket app during football season.

    I've found mobile devices are best as a supplement to a regular computer, and are more suited for consuming simple content. Example, many websites still don't work very well on a mobile browser. Even AC's main blog here will have a heavily formatted post (usually about a flagship phone review) that just doesn't play well with a mobile device, but otherwise works normally on a computer. Also, it can be rather tedious at times using a mobile device to make a long post here in the forums.

    Thus my Windows laptop is my go to device for productivity and full multitasking. It's just so much easier to use a regular computer for its full qwerty keyboard, various keyboard shortcuts, and full copy/paste of virtually any type of content. It's also able to run numerous applications, including heavy video (ex. Sunday Ticket), all at the same time without any one of them pausing or skipping a beat.

    My main web browsing is still done on my MBP. I've been doing a little more on my tablet (now a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014) but I still prefer the laptop for primary browsing. I also use the tablet for Android-based games, some communication (email and Hangouts if I don't feel like dragging the laptop over) and magazine reading.

    I have a surface pro and use it pretty much as my laptop too. I don't game or use any cpu intensive apps so it works fine for my needs

    I use it mostly for gaming but I do use it for web browsing when my phone is not around.

    That's because your Surface Pro is a small screen laptop masquerading as a tablet. It's an awesome device, but I never viewed it as anything other than a laptop. By the way... I see pretty much ALL laptops moving to that same form factor (different sized screens, of course).
