I'm on my 2nd laptop at home, and I have a netbook - a baby laptop - which I take on holiday, and probably use in the way you'd use a tablet. I use it for email, for bulletins about what's going on where I am, checking the weather forecast, and editing or deleting photos taken with a camera.Also for watching subscription tv when required. Both of these use Windows 7. I don't want a tech firm to have control over my system, so I'll avoid Windows 10 until.... well, maybe forever.
I say this because I still have my Windows XP laptop, which I don't use online, but still use for some stuff incompatible with newer OPs. Games and Sony Sonic Stage, mainly. (I still have a minidisc.) But I have Linux on a USB stick, which operates in the computer's memory without requiring installation, so I'll experiment with that.
I don't have a tablet, since I have the netbook, and my phone cost ten quid from Asda, so it's not smart. It is dual Sim though!
