People nowadays don’t want a heavy and bulky device to carry to college just because it does the task. So, laptops are being replaced by tablets gradually. Tablets are much more portable and you can get a much better battery life on them. In general, tablets last from 8-11 hours, whereas laptops last for 4-7 hours.
A good tablet for college isn’t necessarily to be the more expensive ones, i.e. iPad or Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition). You can actually find tablets for a lower price that can also do similar tasks, e.g. the Kindle Fire HDX.
