Laptops vs tablets. My baby didn’t care for touch and apps.

Updated on 25 April 2019 by

At just 8 months old my son made the right choice for us. He chose ‘laptop’ and pushed the tablet to one side. Why? They’re better of course.

It’s a video that I just have to re-post here in 2017 when we’re all getting distracted and, to be honest, bogged-down by the tablet touchscreen. We’re getting lazier and less efficient. Here I am sitting on my bum in front of a laptop and I’m doing real work rather than messing around with Candy, sending smiley faces to ‘friends’ or getting involved with digital activism.

Really, this boy is telling you how to GET THINGS DONE. Real work. Like this post. ;-)

    Hah! A rather clever way to show Laptops are better than Tablets. Although, baby or no baby, I completely agree with your opinion. Tablets are better for gaming or travel purposes. If you want to get real work done, Tablets can never replace laptops.

    Solution: pair a Bluetooth keyboard with the tablet. Most babies want to interact with something with tactile feedback, especially keyboards. Or as someone said below, many babies prefer 2-in-1’s like the Surface.
