Surface 3

Best Cheap Hybrid

Key features:
  • 10.8-inch, 1,920 x 1,280 display
  • microSD card slot
  • Nine-hour battery life
  • Complementary Office 365 subscription
Essentially a smaller, cheaper version of the Surface Pro 3, the Surface 3 is a great option for students who need a tablet that can serve their basic computing needs. The 10.8-inch display is generous yet practical, and it only weighs 887g with the keyboard attached.

It isn’t the most powerful Windows machine, but it’s versatile, stylish and fun to use. Battery life is excellent and the core features, including the screen, connections and keyboard, are all impressive. Our only criticism is that it’s awkward to use on your lap.
