Mi­crosoft Sur­face Go

Irish Independent - Weekend Review - - BOOKS -

(€459 on pre-or­der)

If you’re look­ing for a re­ally light, por­ta­ble touch­screen tablet-lap­top hy­brid, Mi­crosoft’s new Sur­face Go might work. It’s the same size and weight as an iPad but runs Win­dows, so you can use a cur­sor and a touch­pad if you re­ally like that for­mat. The ba­sic model comes with a pretty slim 64GB of stor­age mem­ory and the chip is fairly weak, mean­ing it’s a lit­tle slow. To use as a lap­top, you also need the key­board, which costs an ad­di­tional €100.

Sam­sung Galaxy Tab S4 (€699)

Sam­sung has al­ways had a tough time com­pet­ing with the iPad in the tablet world, so it’s go­ing af­ter a more work-friendly de­vice. The new Galaxy Tab S4 still runs An­droid but can be plugged into a dis­play ac­ces­sory (Sam­sung’s Dex) to turn it into a full PC. Its 10.5inch ‘su­per Amoled’ screen is the same size as the cur­rent iPad Pro. How­ever, a key­board costs ex­tra.
