Go for a Big Screen With an iPad Pro

Apple recently grew its iPad Pro line with the addition of a 9.7-inch version. Regardless of the customer's choice of iPad Pro, the devices deliver a high-end tablet experience. For one, both the 9.7- and 12.9-inch versions come with an A9X processor, offering notebook-like performance. In addition, they both support Smart Keyboard, which effectively turns the device into a notebook, as well as the Apple Pencil, which allows for writing on the screen.

HP ElitePad 1000 G2 Scores With 10-Inch Screen

However, it does have a 10.1-inch screen, 64GB of storage and memory expansion with a microSDXC slot. It's also worth noting the device features Windows 8.1 Pro instead of Windows 10 Pro.

Panasonic's Toughpad 4K Built for Rough Field Work

The Panasonic Toughpad 4K is designed to be a rugged option for customers who often drop their devices or need some extra protection. But its most appealing feature could be its massive 20-inch display featuring a 4K resolution. That, of course, makes the Windows 8.1 Pro-based device quite big, but Panasonic makes up for the size by offering a wide range of ports, including USB 3.0 and Ethernet, along with a MiniDisplayPort. The Touchpad 4K also comes with a Smart Card reader and security cable loop.
