One of the things I’ve benefited most from while working from home has been my tablet. Since school is about to start, I’d bet it will be great for students too.Not only are tablets portable, they are great for reading on, some for writing on, and doing everything else you might do on your laptop, just in a more portable, oftentimes easier to use format. To help you pick out the right tablet for your needs, we’ve rounded up some of the best options out there.
FOR A CLASSIC CHOICE
The iPad has one of the largest displays, which is great for multitasking. It’s compatible with Apple’s Smart Keyboard, making it fairly close to a computer, so much so, that you may even want to replace your laptop with it entirely.

FOR A TABLET TO STREAM ON
Amazon Fire HD 10
The Fire HD 10 is pretty low cost for a tablet, especially when you take into consideration the streaming capabilities and display size. Can it replace your laptop entirely? No, but it is great for streaming on, and reading on alike.

Microsoft Surface Pro 7
Scouted Editor Jillian Lucas loves her Microsoft Surface Pro 7. It has a full Intel Core processor and it’s battery can last up to 10.5 hours. She writes, “Now, when I spend the weekend at my parents’ or head out of town for the week, I don’t have to worry about bringing my entire laptop with me. I can finally leave it at home.”
