I am considering a new 11" laptop but I can get a 10" tablet for about the same price. Which would serve best for casual use?

Ron,

Here are descriptions of the differences. [geeksforgeeks.org]

I use both.
I use the tablet more when I am traveling.

Major differences:
tablet has an on-screen keyboard
tablet can run longer (all day) without being connected to electrical outlet/supply

laptop has a keyboard, touchpad, and a mouse
laptop can run for a short time (maybe 1-2 hours for mine) without being connected to a power supply.

Also a tablet will typically run Android while a laptop will typically run Windows.

You can get both tablets and laptops with Android, linux, windows, ios, or chrome, but the majority of value priced devices are android/windows.

Drivable but the rear axle needs work.
