Tablets

These are a smaller type of computer, the images show what they can look like.

What's it made up of

As you can see, tablets all come separately but can be attached to a keyboard as it is magnetic. In addition you can buy cases for tablets to protect them because they are easy to break and the screen could crack.

Who they will be best for

Unlike the other two types of computers above, you can download apps on the home screen. Therefore these will be useful for schools as they are not too big but not too small for being carried in and out of school.

How much they cost

Tablets are about £175-£600 but can be more or less in some cases

Mobile phones

When summarised phones are basically a pocket sized tablet with only a smaller and slightly different shape. They also allow you to make calls.
