6 High-End Tablets For 2017 Future Proof Build
on this list as all the models 2017 is upon us and it’s almost summer — retails are heading out to buy tablets in bulk for resell and they’re after all the latest tabs to take the market by storm. With all spec upgrades sounding equally impressive, here are some of the best tabs in 2017 categorized by usage.
Benchmark performance for workstations
Sporting the powerful A9X processor, the IPad Pro comes in two screen sizes, 9.7, and 12.1. The APU system makes it easier to render 3D textures, and the voluptuous storage with a 256 GB SSD makes it a beast in all performance benchmarks. Creative workstations are its most ideal use but works well for all tasks. Gaming is significantly improved but is limited to iOS compatible games.
Microsoft Surface Pro
Intel i7, 16 GB RAM, and 512 GB SSD storage are all that you really need for a killer workstation tab. Add to it 10 hours of impressive battery life and all the peppy creative features and upgrades that come with the series, the Surface Pro 4 by Microsoft has outdone all performance benchmarks and, sadly, price benchmarks too. Works ideally as a creative workstation, its superpowers are just wasted on social and gaming considering the price.
Basic social and workplace
This category is reserved for internet friendly tabs with superb compatibility with accessories. These tabs have decent specs and are best used for office tasks including conferences and presentations.
HTC’s Nexus 9 is powered by Google’s tech and is the best tablet on Android OS for workplace tasks. Since most systems are synched with Google, it’s compatible with close to all accessories and delivers efficient streaming performance. It has a powerful NvidiaAPU with 2 GB RAM and 128 GB storage which gives it an edge in creating presentations and basic social use. Internet connectivity is unparalleled in all of the Nexus series.
Lenovo Miix 510
It comes with a detachable keyboard in selected models and is ideal as a workplace assistant. The Miix sports both USB 3.0 and USB-C support which gives it an edge in presentations and conference rooms. The powerful Intel m5 processor with 8GB RAM and 256 GB SSD ensures that your tablet is powerful enough to match benchmarks with future proof laptops.
Gaming and student social
Nvidia Shield K1
All the latest graphics benchmarks are held by Nvidia and its latest Shield K1 is the ultimate gaming machine where tablets are concerned. It has a good internet connectivity and support for Cloud gaming. The Tegra K1 processor with the Kepler GPU makes a lethal combo and makes up for the meagre 32 GB storage.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
The Exynos series by Samsung has always been a multitasking powerhouse with higher single core clock speeds. The 4 GB RAM and expandable 64 GB storage gives it an edge with internet heavy apps. It is compatible with most accessories and makes it the ideal choice for social, office and student tasks, although graphics intensive apps may lag depending on storage clutter which is a minor con specifically for MMORPG gamers.
If it still wasn’t apparent, cameras were not considered have a powerful camera to suit any enthusiast, but for reference, the iPad Pro, Galaxy Tab S, and the Miix take the cherry. Most stores have bulk tablet purchase for online reselling, and you can get some great deals on your next high-end tab.
