Why we test tablets with keyboards
The line between tablet and laptop is blurrier than ever, now that some tablets come with detachable keyboard cases, meaning they can be used like laptops. To capture the crossover, we include devices with a removable keyboard in the tablets test and a few high end tablets in our laptops test. We always test a tablet with its official keyboard case.
We've tested 38 tablet computers.
Find the right one for you.
