Apple iPad Air
The iPad Air retains virtually all of the best features of the flagship-tier iPad Pro while costing $200 less. It's not as inexpensive as the entry-level iPad, but if you can extend your budget to $600, it's a no-brainer. The iPad Air's only significant drawbacks are the absence of 120Hz and the fact that it lacks the iPad Pro's camera system.
Best Phones for 2021
Samsung Galaxy Tab S7
The 11-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 tablet features a 2560 x 1600-pixel display and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 CPU. It has an internal storage capacity of 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB, however, it can be extended with a microSD card. The accompanying S Pen works well with the tablet's screen and will appeal to both note-takers and illustrators. It's a good step forward from the Tab A 8.0, but the hefty price tag may put you off if you're looking for a laptop experience.
Amazon Fire HD 8
Amazon's Fire HD 8 tablet is an update of the HD 8 from 2018. The LCD screen isn't the sharpest, but it's sufficient for watching movies and reading. Stereo speakers tuned for Dolby Atmos offer moderately powerful, clear sound. It may be used for up to 12 hours of combined use, which includes reading, gaming, and streaming.
Best Laptops for 2021
Microsoft Surface Pro 7
The Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is the closest thing to a hybrid device that can function as both a tablet and a laptop. In terms of battery life, it falls short of the Pro 6, but you can still expect to go through a full day of mixed-use before needing to charge. The Type Cover and Surface Pen are fantastic additions that make this a terrific pick for creative professionals, students, and everyone in between.
Lenovo Chromebook Duet
Lenovo Chromebook Duet is a 2-in-1 gadget that has a keyboard as well as a kickstand. It's not the most powerful tablet on the market, but considering that you'll primarily be using internet programs, that shouldn't be a problem. The gadget is quite light and has a long battery life, so it should last for a few days of typical use.
Apple iPad Pro
The iPad Pro (12.9-inch) is the greatest tablet for entertainment and gaming, as well as for drawing. It boasts the largest and finest screen on the market, with a 2732 x 2048 resolution and Liquid Retina XDR display technology. With an M1 processor, the iPad Pro outperforms the new Mac Mini, iMac, and MacBook Air. Apple claims that a full charge would provide 10 hours of mixed usage, or 9 hours if you choose the model with cellular connectivity.
