Off to university? Or perhaps looking to buy a swanky gift for someone headed into higher education? There's a tablet out there to compliment those studies. Click through the slideshow to check out the top tablet picks.
Let's get the obvious out of the way: Apple iPads are a solid choice.
If you can't keep your hands off of your iPhone, an iPad will seamlessly fit into your everyday routine. The Air 2 is one of the most powerful and stylish tablets out there, and the iPad Mini 3 isn't too shabby either.
More high-tech presents to give students this way.
Sometimes it's just easier to write something down. Whether you're frantically scribbling notes in a lecture or indulging in the odd doodle in one of your less attention-grabbing seminars, the simple task of putting pen to paper gets a digital upgrade in the Yoga Tablet 2 with AnyPen.
The 8-inch Lenovo tablet lets you use any metal object as a stylus, whether it's a pen, pencil or set of keys. Easily jot dot notes during classes just like we used to in the old days...but way cooler.
A tablet can't replace your computer, which is still the best choice for typing out those lengthy essays -- but it can come close. The Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is the best desktop replacement we've seen thus far and for good reason.
The productivity-powerhouse packs a stylus and one of the most stylishly innovative tablet keyboards. If it's out of your price range, Microsoft also offers a cheaper model.
If you're on the fence about choosing a tablet over a more traditional laptop, we've also picked the best one of those to get.
