Best Tablets For Globetrotters

A laptop can be a little too much for light travelers, so pick an alternative that’ll go the distance on your long vacations.

Seasoned travelers who want to pack light yet stay connected should consider investing in a tablet before your next globetrotting jaunt. A tablet is the perfect travel companion for streaming movies and music as in-flight entertainment, connecting to the internet from virtually any location, and taking crystal clear photos and video.

And not only are tablets lighter and more compact than bringing along a laptop—but many models today are nearly as powerful, with features like keyboard support that give you added versatility for working on the go.
