Microsoft had released a tall claim when Surface Pro 3 tablet was launched, claiming that it is powerful enough to replace mainstream laptops. While comparing the technical specifications it may true. However, when it comes to actual productive use, tablets will stand to lose in the entire tablet vs laptop race. For power users, who use computers for software development, professional level video editing and serious high end gaming, tablets are never a real option.
Any person who has ever used a tablet PC would attest to the fact that they miss two key features. A keyboard and a mouse! Unless tablets get these features, or an active replacement that performs as well as the default set up does, tablets will never come on par with laptops. The technical specifications only matter to an extent beyond which mobile devices will not find use due to limitations in the operability of the system itself.
Moreover, most tablets available in the market presently lack RAM. As we know, the lesser the RAM of the device, the more often new information needs to be written over the old information, decreasing the efficiency of the device itself. This especially insinuates multi-taskers who need multiple applications open at the same time. Most tablets only have a quarter of the RAM that medium to low range laptops have!
Another issue is storage space. 500 GB of storage space is available in most laptop computers, and high end ones have upto 2 Terabytes of capacity. This level of space in a compact hand-held device is simply unimaginable using today’s technology. Moreover, such tablets, when they get released, will come for an extremely high price tag.
Hence, even if tablets win in terms of having crisper and sharper displays and have a longer battery backup, they still lose when it comes to heavy processor intensive use. Thus, in the race between tablet vs laptop, who wins is not the major question. More crucial is your usage of the intended device. Depending on your needs, you will have to purchase the device that is best suited for you.
If your primary interests are checking your emails, going online and watching an occasional movie in Netflix, tablet PC is your best bet. You will be able to get clearer picture without draining out your battery. However, if your primary need is running various software, you are better off purchasing a laptop. The high processing power will make up for the inconvenience due to lack of mobility.

From the sale of Windows 8 statistics to the extremely powerful tablets, all predictions were pointing at an extinction of laptops in the future, paving way to hand-held systems. However, how much truth lies in this conjecture? Would laptops cease to exist one day?
The answer, in short, would be, NOT in the NEAR future. Maybe someday laptops will be replaced by retina implants and keyboards by bionic implants that monitor your finger movements. However, the chances of a hand-held device actually eliminating laptops, winning the tablet vs laptop war are remote, if not nil. Presently, the biggest issue is the technical configuration itself. Even the highest configuration tablet does not reach up to level with low cost laptops. Even the basic hardware configurations for laptops are unreachable while keeping the mobility that tablets offer. Even 4 GB of RAM or 500 GB of hard-disk is unimaginable for present day tablets.
The only region where tablets reign is battery backup. Tablets generally have higher battery backup, not because of the competence of the battery but because of the low power consumption due to low powered processors. However, this low processing power has its own limitations and is a nightmare for multi-taskers who want to work on multiple apps at the same time. When it is time to run some processor intensive software and do some actual work, you would prefer the laptop over anything else.
The biggest problem that stands in the way of laptops is the very reason that it is devoid of mobility. However, the keyboard and mouse make the best input devices when it comes to actual work. Touch screen does not bode well for typing for extended durations or for clicking and dragging with precision. This means, while tablet is ideal for reading few books, surfing the internet and watching a couple of videos, it cannot be used for anything more. The lack of keyboard, the small screen and an effective alternative solution to mouse is what stops it from being popular.
To end with, laptops and tablets are complementary devices and are defined to be used for different purposes. If you need more
features than occasionally typing out a few messages, or just browsing the internet and need to run some advanced software suites, it is better to settle for a laptop. The whole tablet vs laptop war is, in a way, pointless because both devices serve different needs.
