Productivity on the Move: The Best Business Tablets of 2017 | Sci-Tech Today

Buying the best business tablet for your needs can help revolutionize productivity, allowing you to remain productive while out and about, without having to lug heavy gear around.

1. Microsoft Surface Pro

While Microsoft didn’t call this year’s tablet the Surface Pro 5, in many ways it’s a sequel to the Surface Pro 4 (which also features on our list of the best business tablets), with a 32% increase in battery life – according to our benchmarks — as well as a refined design that remains thin and light, while also providing plenty of power. The new and improved Surface Pen and Type Cover makes this a brilliant business tablet that can be used as a laptop replacement, and it comes in a range of specifications, which makes choosing the right model for your business (and personal) needs easy.

Which Microsoft Surface device is best for you? Surface Pro, Surface Laptop, Surface Book, or Surface Studio?

Microsoft offers four Surface device families within its portfolio comprising the Surface Pro, Surface Laptop, Surface Book and Surface Studio.

Each has a touchscreen, but only three of them are “mobile”, as one of them is an eye-catching all-in-one that sits on a desk and one of them runs a sandboxed version of Windows known as Windows 10 S.

Confused about which one might be the one for you? No worries. It’s not as complicated as it first seems and to help you figure out the differences between them all and work out which is the best for your requirements, we’ve compared each of the four Surface device families spec-by-spec to give you a better idea of which is best for you.

Hands-on: HP’s Envy x2 is a Surface clone boasting 20 hours of battery life

HP’s Envy X2 is the first Windows tablet to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, the same battery-sipping processor powering your cell phone. We go hands on.

The HP Envy x2 joins a growing cohort of Surface Pro clones, but with one big difference: Inside it is a Snapdragon 835, offering battery life of up to 20 hours. We spent a little time with it at the Qualcomm Technology Forum to see what a new chip would do in an established category.

HP still dominates as Windows PC OEM, Surface Pro 4 most popular from Microsoft | Pocketnow

In the world of personal computers, the tide is turning away from desktops and conventional laptops to convertible tablets and laptops — foldables.

In the first-party device category, Surface Pro 4 takes the cake at 39.7 percent while the Surface Pro 3 of 2014 is still holding on at 21.7 percent. The third-place Surface 3, at 10.4 percent, is not too far ahead of the Surface Pro (2017) at 9.2 percent — not too bad for replacement grades at the six-month mark. All we have to do is wait for LTE-equipped Surface Pro devices to show up on the list.
