A Highland Community College Lifelong Learning Series Series course on Laptops and Tablets will be held on Monday, Nov. 5, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Senior Activity Center to discuss the two devices. A thin, portable computer with a touchscreen as the primary input device is a tablet. What will suit your needs and budget best, a laptop or a tablet? Learn more about the differences, similarities and capabilities of each. Fee is $29; instructor is Shara Ibalio. Register through HCC.
