iPad Pro 10.5
Web www.apple.com Price £619 The price difference between Apple’s flagship iPad and the Tab S4 seems trivial – until you realise that the iPad doesn’t come with a stylus. Apple’s Pencil is superb, but adds a not-insignificant £89 to the overall asking price.
Web http://store.google.com Price £999 With some serious Intel power bubbling under the bonnet, this is more of a laptop you can convert into a tablet to run Android apps. The Pixelbook Pen costs £99, but only offers 2,000 levels of pressure sensitivity.
Web www.microsoft.com Price £379 Once you’ve bought the keyboard, the Surface Go pulls off the dual tablet/laptop trick more successfully than the Tab S4. But you’ll also need to spend £99 on a Surface Pen, which delivers 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity.
