Battery life. Having a battery makes life a lot easier not having to search for a power outlet or even doing your work outside. However, find a model with a sub par battery design and you get nothing but headaches.

Not many suitable for gaming. If you want to play games do not get a laptop unless it is an alienware or other game based device. They were designed originally for professionals and never came with hardware or software to allow games to run properly.

Hybrid options available. If you cannot decide between a laptop or a tablet why not get both? There are many models that function as both a laptop and tablet to cater for all needs.

Allows small modification. The myth that laptops cannot be modified is a lie. PCs allow for full customisation unlike a laptop but important things like graphics cards, ram and storage space can easily be adapted.
