Best Tablet for Content: Apple iPad with Retina display

Key Features:
  • Light to carry around
  • Solid battery life to last a day
  • Free iWork apps
The key advantage of the iPad Air over other tablets is the extensive educational support. The App Store is packed with apps dedicated to key core subjects including History, Science, Maths. The iBooks store additionally offers a wealth of content with iCloud support so if the battery runs out on your iPad, you can pick up where you left off on another iOS devices. iWork support is now free as well and includes Pages for word processing, Keynote for preparing presentations and Numbers to, well, crunch numbers. If you really need to get that physical typing feeling, there’s plenty of great Bluetooth keyboards and the Logitech Keyboard Folio would be a good shout.

I actually think the surface pro 2 is a better tablet for school because I've used both and the surface pro 2 is more powerful and better
