    Microsoft Surface Pro (2017)

    Still a Pro, despite an unadventurous update

    Google Pixel C

    Android-worthy iPad replacement

    The Google Pixel C is the Android tablet to beat. It's got a sleek, solid build and features a magnetic keyboard (sold seperately) that attaches so strongly, you can hold it upside down and the tablet won't fall.

    Samsung Galaxy Book (12-inch)

    A great Windows tablet that just scratches the Surface

    The Samsung Galaxy book beats the Surface on value by including a keyboard cover and stylus in the box, but the Surface's design is still much more refined.
