It's difficult to go wrong with the good ol' Surface Pro. Microsoft's tablet has been top of the heap for years now, with the latest update boasting improved battery life and a more flexible kickstand.
You can pick one up from AU$1,199, but make sure you go with the model powered by an Intel core i5, not the Intel core m3 processor.
Speaking of the iPad, Apple's tablets are always worth considering. The 9.7-inch iPad this year received support for Apple Pencil, making it more appealing for creatives, as well as a faster A10 processor. It starts at AU$469.
If you're already sold on iOS and want something more from your tablet, the iPad Pro is for you. It's not cheap, with the 12.9-inch model starting at AU$1,189, but thanks to a solid range of accessories, it's a strong choice for both creative and business types who like to do some work on the move.
There's also a 10.5-inch version that can be bought from AU$879.
Sometimes simple is better. Lenovo's Tab 4 is a basic tablet, but in the best way. It's affordable, at AU$178, but has a sharp 8-inch screen and a long battery life, making it a solid tablet for reading and Netflix.
