You no longer need to be tied to your computer to type out a text document or build a slideshow. Thease days there are many apps available that helps you edit files straight from your phone or tablet. This year, both Microsoft and Google completely overhauled their mobile apps for Office and Drive, while Apple updated its iWork suite too, making small improvements here and there.
These days, manufacturers are inventing new ways to outsell each other, including aggressive price cutting. Now we’re seeing many ultraportable products that run powerful-enough processors to take around the house or at work or school.
