We also spent a month with the 2017 Surface Pro, and found it has much better battery life than the older model Surface Pro 4—though if you prefer to use a pro tablet with a stylus, the Surface Pen is now $60 extra.
This makes these models competitors not just for standard tablets, but as interesting portable alternatives to an external graphics tablet like those in the Wacom lineup.” TV ad reminds us, these don’t feature touchscreens or the capability to fold the keyboard out of sight.With Android tablets, you could instead get a touchscreen Chromebook that can now run Android apps of its own, but it will be bulkier and have shorter battery life.For example, if you’re heavily invested in Apple’s ecosystem of hardware, software, and services, a Windows 10 tablet will be an awkward fit.So we didn’t set out to find the absolute “best” models and then rank them, as we do in most of our guides.Pro tablets do, however, require different trade-offs.
Windows-based pro tablets such as Microsoft’s Surface Pro allow you to run almost any traditional desktop app, but the desktop-class operating system isn’t yet optimized for tablet use—it carries a higher risk of malware and sometimes stumbles at touchscreen or stylus input.
Most people won’t, but there are reasons you might.
One is that you’re frustrated by the challenge of creating and editing complex documents on a general-use touchscreen tablet—you can’t use an instrument more precise than your fingertip to manipulate things on the screen, and the screen may be too small.
Pro tablets generally offer a larger screen and the finer input control of an active stylus designed specifically for use with that device.
Another is that you find the weight and battery life of a traditional laptop to be limiting: A pro tablet will weigh less and run longer on a charge.
I should also note that most of my portable productivity happens on a really old Mac Book Air.
