As tablets have gotten more powerful, they've gone from interesting novelty to a must-have gadget for many people. Of course, there are still plenty of tech users who don't see the need for one, or don't think they'll use it.

If you're one of those people and you haven't looked at tablets in a year or two, it's time for another look. Today we're going to talk about five types of people who should consider buying a tablet this holiday season, and what tablets will work best.

1. You need a new computer

Computer prices have fallen substantially to the point you can pick up a laptop for as little as $200. Still, it's going to be slow, bulky and only good for the most basic computer tasks. Even at $300 to $400, you aren't anywhere near the top of the line.

If you're after a budget computer, you might be better off with a tablet. For the same price, it can handle any basic task you throw at it, from Web browsing, Facebook and email to casual games, streaming video and more. Plus, it's much more portable than a laptop with a longer battery life, so you can use it on the couch, in bed, or on the go. Learn more about how a tablet could be a better buy than a new computer.

If the reason you're sticking with a computer is because you need Windows, tablets with Windows 10 are now powerful enough and cheap enough to work for you. The KomandoTab2 we sell in the Komando Shop is a perfect example. It's a full Windows computer in a tablet-size package, and it even comes with a keyboard case for those times you need to type something long and the on-screen keyboard won't cut it. Check it out and you'll be impressed. Oh, and if you buy today and use promo code SAVE10, you'll save 10%.
