The prices will vary, but that’s expected when you might find yourself at a university of a healthy mixed crowd. What actually matters is that there is something for everyone, no matter if it’s a laptop or a tablet.
2017 Apple iPad (9.7-inch)
We’re starting off slightly small, respectfully taking a side step to the iPad Pro (10.5-inch, 2017). While the latter premium might be the most ideal choice, not all of us can afford one. The latest edition of the iPad Air, if you will, is still a damn good tablet. If you want a functioning tablet that let’s you do more than just read books, the iPad remains the best tablet in any market. You would also be paying more than half the price of the newest iPad Pro.
Microsoft Surface Pro
Hands down, of its kind, the Surface Pro leads the pack. Not only do the newest Surfaces have longer battery life, which is a huge upgrade, most of the models are fan-less. Of all the Windows devices, this is the best tablet-laptop you’ll find anywhere. While the cheapest option is the Intel Core M, 4GB RAM, 128GB model, we recommend you opt for the Core i5 and higher models. With proper specs, it can run you up to Tk75,000.
Toshiba Portege X20W-D
It’s not usually a name that people will cling on to or are in a rush to buy. The fact is, even though the brand isn’t as popular as it used to be, Toshiba has been developing and producing impressive tech related products for a very long time. This pen-enabled 2-in-1 is meant for business, but it can really be used by anyone because of its durable build and long battery life. If you can manage to get your hands on this device, you will have found quite the gem.
Dell XPS 13 2-in-1
Another name that has been dependable since the Internet boom is Dell. This particularly attractive model is one of the best, if not the best, 13-inch ultraportable devices. While it may put a lovely Tk80,000 or higher dent in your pockets, this is definitely worth the investment. The hybrid hinge, thinner body, almost bezel-free display really takes advantage of the space given. If you can look past the lack of ports and slightly lower processing power, it makes for a wonderful full-time laptop and converts into a tablet for those on-the-go moments.
Wacom MobileStudio Pro 16
It’s not all just about textbook, lectures and research papers for those who are eager to learn. This sophisticated device is aimed towards the young professionals in the creative field. This Windows 10 tablet is a dream for most art students to have. Yes, they are definitely not cheap, but when there is so much this tablet can do, and how sturdy it feels, it’s worth the purchase. Serving multiple functions, it feels good in the hands and has an excellent pressure-sensitivity capability. Knowing you’ll be shelling out quite the amount, this device can last you for years, if taken care of properly.
