The tablet server web site has been around since August of 2014 in one form or another and occupying a few different domains. It has been moved and shifted and adjusted to meet the demands of traffic and also to allow for easy access.
We have changed the name over the years from a freebie dynamic domain name from ChangeIP .com to a full fledged “real” domain name. One thing that has never changed here is the desire to prove that a tablet can be a viable web server and that notebooks and laptops can do the same! (and yes, we have even run it on a smartphone a few times!)
Considering the fact that this site has run on an Asus Memo Pad HD7, then an Asus ME572C, (which was incredible), and a Dragon Touch X10 and an Asus Z580CA to start with, I think our point has been proven. Since late 2015/early 2016 we have been on a HiBook Chuwi tablet or a Chuwi Hi12. Sure we have even run the site off an Asus X553SA notebook and it worked great!
We have been on Android, and Windows 7, using a Linux VM and currently Windows 10 with a Linux VM. (Yes, Linux makes a superior and far more cross device system than Windows itself).
I mentioned in a post a few years back that if you had a cable connection you could easily run your own web server. These days, with the faster connection speeds and the fact we have tablets like the Hi12, that I have let run for 22+ hrs as the server, there is no need to purchase expensive hardware or pay expensive hosting fees.
You can run your own back-ups and if needed rebuild your small business server in literally an hour or so if it gets broken, which does happen. All it takes is half a brain and the willingness to think outside the box.
You might be wondering where all this is going and now we get to the meat of this post. That is the simple fact that you need only look for one thing when buying a new tablet/notebook or even a smartphone and that is to decide which will get the job that YOU need done without issues!
Don’t be fooled by the thinner is better crowd, nor the metal is premium jabber. Yeah, those all sound good, but how many of you have a metal dashboard in your car? Let that sink in, the answer is, unless you belong to the metal and heavier and more power is better crowd, well then the answer is none!
Do you buy the latest fashions? I certainly hope not, because do not blue jeans and a t-shirt work as well as a Brooks Brothers suit? Yeah it is sort of like that, do not be a sheep, do not buy what the media describes as bleeding edge, just read, watch, learn and then decide what gets the job done.
I will never recommend anything that the average Joe can’t afford and I will never, ever, tell you something is worth buying without either thorough researching or having owned said product myself (and usually having tried to kill it).
That is all I have on a Monday,
This site currently runs on either a Chuwi HiBook tablet or occasionally my Chuwi Hi12 tablet. Check the About page for details. Registration without participation will result in termination.
