Microsoft Surface Go

The Surface Go is Microsoft’s most versatile Windows-based tablet to date. Its weight starts at just 1.15 pounds, and its 10-inch PixelSense display helps keep the size of the tablet down while still being comfortably large for all common tasks. Thanks to its large battery and the streamlined nature of the Windows 10 Home operating system in S Mode, the Surface Go can run for up to 9 hours without charging.

The Surface Go is designed for use with the Surface Pen, which is a precise stylus with 4,096 pressure points that respond to the lightest touch. The Surface Pen works flawlessly with apps like OneNote, Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop, or just about any other modern Windows app out there.

You can even use the Surface Go as your main computer thanks to the Surface Go Signature Type Cover. Featuring a full mechanical keyset and extra-large trackpad, the Surface Go Signature Type Cover offers a very comfortable typing experience and is designed for use with the kickstand that’s present on the back of the Surface Go.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro Pen. The tablet can last over 10 hours on a charge, so you can binge-watch your favorite shows or play games without worrying about running out of power.

Just like the Surface Go, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S can also be purchased with a full-size detachable keyboard with an integrated touchpad, but this keyboard is far less suitable for heavy use than the one designed by Microsoft. Because the keyboard provides just one viewing angle, using it for any significant amount of time can lead to neck strain. As such, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S is best suited for people who intend to use it mostly for content consumption.

Microsoft Surface Pro

Professionals need professional tools, and there’s no Windows tablet that’s more up to the task than the Microsoft Surface Pro. This powerful tablet has a 12.3-inch PixelSense touchscreen with pen input and a resolution of 2736 x 1824 pixels. You can get the Surface Pro with 4, 8, or 16 GB of memory and 128, 256, 512, or 1 TB of storage space. We recommend you avoid the least powerful model because its hardware simply can’t keep up with all those things the Surface Pro has been designed to do.

We also recommend you purchase the Type Cover for Surface Pro, which effectively turns the Surface Pro into a full-fledged Windows tablet. You can, of course, also control the Surface Pro with the excellent Surface Pen or even the wildly innovative Surface Dial, which allows you to press and hold to display a radial menu of tools, greatly simplifying the control of apps like Adobe Photoshop or Sketchable.

Huawei MateBook E

Huawei’s premium Windows tablet is a truly gorgeous device, but its price may be difficult to swallow. At nearly $1,000, there’s no surprise that the Huawei MateBook E excels in virtually every way, from its design to its internal components. Its 2K display with 84% screen-to-body ratio and narrow bezels provides an exceptional visual experience, while its powerful desktop-class CPU handles even the most demanding Windows applications with ease.

The Huawei MateBook E has an independent encrypted chip for fingerprint authentication, and it comes with the Folio Keyboard. The keyboard features a new hinge design that makes it possible to adjust the viewing angle for a more comfortable typing experience. Also included with the Huawei MateBook E is one year of Office 365 subscription, giving you access to all Microsoft Office applications and 1 TB of cloud storage with OneDrive for free.

Acer Switch 5

The Acer Switch 5 is a powerful 2-in-1 convertible that can transform from a compact tablet into a portable laptop in just a few seconds. Powered by the Intel Core i5-7200U processor, the Acer Switch 5 has more processing power than many regular laptops in the same price range. You can also get it with the Intel Core i5-7200U processor, which almost seems like an overkill for such a small device.

The Acer Switch 5 has an excellent integrated stand that lets you adjust the convertible to your favorite viewing angle with just one hand. Because the Acer Switch 5 packs a very large battery, you can work for the entire day without ever taking out the charger.
