For most, tablets are those Apple and Android tablets that you can't run Windows apps on. Many netbooks run Windows and that seems to be why folk get such a thing.

Big differences

a Netbook is a smaller laptop with a smaller screen and and a less powerfull processor. It has a keyboard and the screen ISN'T touch screen. A tablet as most of use know comes with an on screen keyboard that uses touch screen technology. Netbooks are more likely to have multiple have USB connectors and card readers and a HDMI port. A tablet may have one or 2 of those about but not all three and if they have a HDMI connection it's usually the mini HDMI. Apps on a netbook are installed just like any other computer but apps for a tablet are downloaded from a Store where they may cost money or be free. You can buy software for a netbook at Best Buy and apps for the tablet are acquired online.

Tablets are also NON Upgradeable meaning you cant add memory or storage and you can't replace the battery like you can in netbooks.

Tablets, netbooks, smartphones--these days, you can't buy a microwave without being upsold on the 4G, touchscreen, app-store model. But when you're picking out your preferred mobile tech for work (or even for play), you can't rely on a features chart or a list of specs to tell you what you should buy. That's why I decided to try working from the road with three different gadget combinations--a netbook with a smartphone, a Google Chrome OS CR-48 with a "dumb" phone, and an iPad with a dumb phone--to see which arrangement worked best for my needs and my budget

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
