Microsoft Surface Pro (2017)

Still a Pro, despite an unadventurous update

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
Microsoft’s flagship Surface Pro gets an extremely conservative update, but better battery life keeps it the gold standard of Windows hybrid PCs — for now.



iPad Pro (10.5-inch, 2017)

Apple’s tablet wants to be your everything

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
Apple’s 2017 iPad Pros improve on already excellent drawing, video and photo capabilities, but its true potential won’t be seen until iOS 11 hits later this year.



Apple iPad (9.7-inch, 2017)

Apple’s cheapest iPad is a flat-out great value

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
Pro and Air 2 owners can skip this one, but for nearly everyone else, the updated iPad is an ideal all-around tablet at a fantastic price.



Samsung Galaxy Tab S3

Samsung’s best tablet screen is a sight to behold

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
Samsung packs buzz-worthy features like S Pen and HDR support into its new premium Galaxy Tab S3, but without a keyboard packed in, it’s still more about content consumption than creation.



Samsung Galaxy Book (12-inch)

A great Windows tablet that just scratches the Surface

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
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.



Google Pixel C

Best big Android

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
Google-branded tablets tend to be some of the best, and that rings true with the Pixel C. It runs pure Android and gets the latest updates as soon as they roll out. It’s also impecably designed and offers a similarly sleek (optional) keyboard.



Apple iPad (9.7-inch, 2017)

Apple’s cheapest iPad is a flat-out great value

Design : 8Features : 8Performance : 9Battery : 9
Pro and Air 2 owners can skip this one, but for nearly everyone else, the updated iPad is an ideal all-around tablet at a fantastic price.
