Tablets vs. Laptops Now we're ready to compare tablets and laptops, in this lesson we take a close examination of the similarities and distinct differences between these two mobile computers. As technician, you learn for example that tablets had far fewer serviceable parts than do laptop computers, and that laptops are far easier to troubleshoot in terms of component repairs as hard drive and similar components are easily swapped out. Tables require specialized service, with the exception of the display screen; their component parts are not swappable. So resolving a customer issues will more likely mean replacement rather than repair. By the conclusion of this lesson, you'll learn the how's and why's of tablet vs. laptop service and maintenance.
