Touch screens make operating a cell phone or computer very easy. Just by touching the screen you can open the application you want and start using it. Tablet computers are lightweight and very portable. I can remember carrying around my old computer, it was quite heave, but having a Tablet with Keyboard dock is one way to maximize the utility of your tablet. If you want to just use the touch screen or if you want to use a keyboard for faster typing, this is really the way to go. I like my mini laptop, it is portable and light weight, however I think if I had it to do over again, I might get a newer mode with a touch screen and when I want to get down to writing my blog, one with a docking keyboard.
