A Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 may not have the same heft as an iPad, but it’s still plenty versatile and can replace a laptop for everyday tasks. In terms of Android tablets, this is top of the line, offering an edge-to-edge display as well as a newly redesigned S Pen, with improved contact and pen latency that makes taking notes or creating a presentation an absolute breeze. It also opens up tons of creative possibilities. But it’s great for work, too. Now that so much of the workday takes place over video calls, there are 13MP and ultrawide 5MP dual rear cameras and an 8MP front-facing camera to offer perfectly clear video imagery. And to make sure those calls are uninterrupted and that you can multitask while doing them, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 has 8GB of RAM and an octa-core processor. Add Dolby Sound and you’re looking at quite the impressive package. Best of all, with five hours of battery life, this tablet is always ready to serve.

In the world of tablets, it really doesn’t get much better than the iPad Pro, especially the fourth-generation 2020 version. Let’s start with the screen, which is 12.9 inches of Liquid Retina glory. Add to that ProMotion, True Tone, and P3 Wide Color, and you have the most impressive visuals you can get on a tablet. The iPad Pro runs with Apple’s A12Z Bionic chip with Neural Engine, which can outpace many PC laptops. And while there’s only 6MB of RAM backing it up, it’s hard to find a tablet that’s more capable at running many large apps at once. It’s a multitasker’s dream. The video recording is 4K, the camera is 12MP, it’s compatible with both Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard (as well as Bluetooth keyboards), it has Face ID for ease and security, and it boasts a USB-C connection. That means that if you need more than the 256GB storage, there’s lightning-fast file transfer, not to mention charging. That said, the battery on the iPad Pro lasts up to 10 hours — impressive on any tablet, but mind-blowing when you take into account the screen quality and all this tablet can do. Apple almost never discounts its products, and this iPad Pro is almost 10% off!
