Should I get a laptop or a tablet?

Episode 1146 (52:37)

Jim from Long Beach, CA
Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Touch

Jim needs a new laptop, and he's thinking about getting a Windows Surface Pro 3. Leo says that it's not cheap, but it has the best tablet screen on the market. Could he hook it up to a printer though? Leo says yes, and most printers even have Wi-Fi printing now. But he could connect with USB if he needed to.

Dell also makes a great laptop, as does Lenovo. The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 is Leo's favorite. The cost is worth it. The HP Stream is a $200 laptop that everyone is talking about, and it's decent for the price, but it's not comparable to a higher end system. Leo also likes the Acer Aspire S7, which is very thin and light. It also has a touch screen.
