What is the best Windows tablet in 2020? Every year a lot of new 2-in-1 tablets are released by Microsoft, Lenovo, Acer, and other brands. Some of them are very similar to each other, others offer unique features. Most are released with a keyboard and an active pen. And all of them run Windows 10. So which one is the best?

Microsoft Surface Pro 7: The Best Windows Tablet

While the Microsoft Surface Pro 7 is fairly expensive, it does offer a premium design, a great keyboard cover, and an excellent stylus. Because you don’t have to make any compromises, I think it is the best Windows tablet you can get right now. It features a high-resolution 12.6-inch screen, an Intel Core i3, i5 or Core i7 10th generation processor, 4GB to 16GB of RAM and an up to 1TB SSD.

Again, its only real downside is the price. You have to buy the Type Cover and the Surface Pen stylus separately. However, both are excellent. The keyboard is comfortable and the pen supports 4096 pressure points. Other aspects like battery life are great too. It also is the first Surface Pro to feature a USB C port.

Microsoft Surface Pro 6: A Cheaper Alternative

The Microsoft Surface Pro 6 is a fantastic alternative to the Surface Pro 7 if you want to save some money. In fact, their design and screen are almost identical. While you don’t get a USB C port with the Pro 6, you can use the exact same Type Cover and Surface Pen that’s being sold with the newer version too. It has the same high-resolution 12.3-inch display, the same build-in kickstand and the battery life is even a tiny bit better.

Now, as you might expect, the performance is not identical. The Surface Pro 6 is chipped with Core i5 and Core i7 processors of the older 8th generation. I think most won’t notice a performance difference. However, if you need as much power as possible, you should go with the newer one. You can choose between up to 16GB of RAM and an up to 1TB SSD here as well.

The Lenovo Yoga Duet 7i is a very interesting alternative to the Surface lineup from Microsoft. With its 13-inch screen, it’s a bit bigger than the Surface Pro 7 but has a similar design with an integrated kickstand and its Windows Hello camera. You can get versions with an Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 10th generation processor, as well as up to 16GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD. It has three USB C ports and the pen and keyboard are included.

Speaking of the keyboard, this is the most interesting feature. Connected to the Yoga Duet 7i, it works very similar and similar great as the keyboard from Microsoft does. But in this case, the keyboard has an additional battery and supports Bluetooth. That means you can also use it while it’s detached from the tablet. I think that can be super useful. You can have the tablet standing on the desk and the keyboard sitting on your lap, for instance.

Here, it’s important that you compare prices. The Core i5 chip is not as powerful as the Core i5 of the Surface Pro 7, for example, so make sure that you get it at a better price.

Microsoft Surface Pro X: A Perfect Tablet For 1%

I think for most, the Surface Pro 7 or 6 are the better Windows tablet. But for some, the Microsoft Surface Pro X can be a perfect choice. It offers a much more modern design, a better and bigger 13-inch screen and the same kind of kickstand. While the keyboard cover and Surface Slim Pen are a bit different, they’re excellent as well.

With that being said, it’s important to note that the Surface Pro X is running with an ARM processor. That means while many apps from the Microsoft Store, Office 365 apps and the Edge and Chrome browser to run great, some apps and almost all games are not supported.

The Surface Pro X can be a perfect business tablet if you’re willing to spend lots of money on a premium design that you almost exclusively use for Office work an web browsing only. I also like that LTE is a build-in standard. However, there are some limitation. If you’re thinking about getting the Pro X, you should read my review first.

Microsoft Surface Go 2: The Best 10-Inch Windows Tablet

Microsoft Surface Go 2 review

Microsoft Surface Go 2 on* Amazon

The Microsoft Surface Go 2 is the best 10-inch Windows tablet you can get right now. While it is not as powerful as the big Surface Pro 7, it does feature a very similar and premium design. In fact, it supports a similar and excellent Type Cover and the same Surface Pen. Both have to be bought separately though.

If you are looking for a smaller 10-inch Windows tablet, the Surface Go is the best option I reviewed. However, remember that the performance of its Pentium Gold processor is not great for demanding tasks. You can get it with 4GB or 8GB RAM and a 64GB eMMC storage or a 128GB SSD. The version with an Intel Core m processor is a bit more powerful.

Lenovo IdeaPad D330: A Cheaper But Great Alternative

The Lenovo IdeaPad D330 offers very similar features as the Surface Go, but it is cheaper. Due to that, it is not as premium-feeling and has a plastic body only. On the bright side, the keyboard dock is included at no extra charge. If you don’t want to spend as much money for a high-end 10-inch tablet, I think the Lenovo IdeaPad D330 is a great alternative.

You have a lot of options here. Depending on the version, you can get this Windows tablet with an HD or full HD screen. The processor can be a Intel Celeron 4000 dual-core or Intel Pentium Silver N5000 quad-core chip. Additionally, you can choose between 2GB or 4GB of RAM and an up to 128GB storage. LTE is optional.
