Best Windows tablet + keyboard/2-in-1 for basic student use?

Please help!
I need a tablet and keyboard/2-in-1 running Windows, just for basic student use (studying nursing), under $500 AUD.
But with sooooo many devices, reviews and endless information out there, narrowing it down to choose what to purchase is extremely difficult for someone who isn't in the know!
I only need it for some research, and producing/editing documents in Office programs. No gaming, no awesome movie streaming, don't care about amazing sound quality or anything else fancy that seems to be the main thing talked about in most reviews. I don't even care if it's new or old.
I just need a decent, reasonably priced device and keyboard, and I would so appreciate your opinions on what to choose for this simple purpose. Thank you kindly in advance! Happy

List the ones that made your cut so members can comment on them. What's here may not be in AUS so you need to share your short list.

.... But I don't have a shortlist, I'm sorry! There's just too many devices out there, hence my asking for suggestions here Happy
