The coolest Windows tablets to buy this Holiday Season
1. Surface Pro 6 & 7
This is the latest Surface Pro version from Microsoft. The big M released the Surface Pro 6 in 2018 and we think every Microsoft fan should own one.
This tablet is ultra-slim, ultra-portable and extremely versatile. It also packs the latest Intel CPU for top-notch performance.
The 12.3-inch PixelSense display sports a 2736 x 1824 (267 PPI) resolution that renders crystal-clear images. Multi-touch is also supported, so you can quickly get the work done even if you forgot your mouse and keyboard at home.
Of course, if your budget allows it, you can get the new Surface Pro 7. This 12.3″ touchscreen 2-in-1 laptop is ultra-light and versatile. Get this device and you won’t have to worry about battery life.
2. Surface Go
If you’re looking for Surface device of a newer generation that has a friendlier price tag than the Surface Pro 6, then the Surface Go is a very good choice.
As its name suggests, you can take this tablet everywhere you go. It comes with a 10-inch PixelSense display that’s perfect for viewing documents or watching videos. Excellent touch-screen support allows you to write on it as if your were writing on paper.
This is the lightest Surface device ever, weighing just 1.15 lbs. It has a solid 9 hour battery life that’s more than enough to power you throughout the day. The device comes with Windows 10 in S mode pre-installed.
3. HP Envy x360
If you need a flexible tablet (literally!), then this is perhaps the best choice that you can make this Christmas. The hinges that this tablet sports allow it to bend up to 360 degrees, as shown in the image above.
The Envy x360 is the perfect definition of a laptop/ tablet hybrid device. It comes equipped with a 15.6-inch FHD IPS micro-edge WLED-backlit multitouch-enabled display as well as dual-speakers.
There’s an AMD Ryzen 5 2500U (2.0 GHz, up to 3.6 GHz, 4 MB cache, 4 cores) under the hood.
4. Microsoft Surface Pro 4
If you’re looking for a powerful, stable and reliable tablet, the Surface Pro 4 is the perfect candidate. Although it comes with a higher price tag than other Windows 10 tablets, the device is worth every penny.
Microsoft Surface Pro 4 is powered by a 6th generation Intel Core M CPU, and offers 128 GB of storage, 4 GB RAM, and an impressive video playback autonomy of up to 9 hours of video playback on the 12.3-inch Pixel Sense Display.
The tablet features Windows Ink, allowing you to take note quickly with the help of a digital pen. If you work in graphics design or a complementary tool, then the Surface Pro 4 is the right tablet for you. It can run all of the professional-grade software you need, including Adobe Creative Cloud, Citrix, AutoCAD or Visual Studio.
