For artists, photographers, vigorous notetakers, productivity diehards, and other creative professionals, a tablet can be a handy second device for getting work done. We recommend the iPad Pro (11-inch, M2) for its beautiful display, fast M2 processor, and precise stylus—especially for users already immersed in Apple’s ecosystem. Otherwise, for Windows users looking for the thinnest machine possible, the Surface Pro 9 runs the full Windows operating system, making it better for taking your documents and Excel spreadsheets on the go.
