These tablets will send your student to the top of the class.
While the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is more of a laptop masquerading as a tablet, it has the grunt needed for resource intensive applications.
Running Windows 10, the tablet is very portable but the keyboard kickstand is an extra purchase.
Another Windows option is the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S that includes a keyboard.
The bright AMOLED display outperforms the screens in more expensive options and the battery lasts for full day's worth of work.
Apple's iPad Pro comes in two sizes.
The Pencil stylus, sold separately, is useful for design and art applications, and the high res screen is ideal for multitasking and split screen apps.
For students who only need an e-reader, the Amazon Kindle Oasis is one of our top picks.
Weighs just 4.3 ounches and with a magnetic battery case it lasts up to nine weeks before it needs charging.
