Avoid windows like the plague. Android 5 an upwards has been a lovely experience. I would also steer clear of samsung as they have a poor track record of continuous support for their products. I can't recommend the Amazon Fire enough but it obviously all comes down to screen size and what you need it for.

​Why avoid Windows? I find it best. Android feels like I'm using my phone with no call option. I'd say avoid Android. Amazon Fire I find extremely slow, with freezing and struggle to do the things other Android tablets do which is even worse again. Amazon is basically the Apple of Android where it locks you in and you have to pay for anything decent.

I would say a dual boot option would be best but it depends on what your needs are. Stay away from the Amazon Fire and look for one with at least 2gb ram and a good storage expansion capability. Also if you go Android make sure the device is still supported with updates as those tablets tend to get old very quickly without the updates support.

So speaking from experience:

I have an iPad Mini 3 4G and hardly use it. (Granted, only recently got it as had an iPad 2 and it was terribly slow!)
I also have a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and again, hardly use it. (Had this about 4 months now and bought it as I used a Surface at an expo for about 8 hours and loved it, told myself I needed one but haven't actually got a purpose for it)
I had an Asus Nexus 7 2013 32GB 4G (Android) and traded it in as I didn't use it. (Out of all the tablets, this was probably the one I actually used the most, quick, lightweight, enough storage etc).

Out of the 3 types I always fall back onto the iPad as its in sync with my iPhone for work and is probably the most relevant to me but above that I always find I tend to pick up my Macbook for everything which is annoying as I got the tablet devices to web browse and to light work/shopping/banking/emails and just find them annoying with the lack of physical keyboard.

I would recommend going for a branded device and plenty of ram. As you know you are limited to the storage you buy your IOS device with but with the majority of Android and Windows devices, they have an SD slot for additional space. (I picked up a 128GB SD Card recently for around £20 thanks to this site).

It really comes down to what you actually want to use the device for. Screen size is also important, the Nexus 7 I had was quite small but I liked that as it fitted in my bag and didn't add much weight.

Nvidia Shield Tablet
- Pros: 8 inch, very quick, front facing speakers, always updating software, cheap
- Cons: Battery life is average
- This tablet is the best bang for your buck.

Pixel C:
- Pros: Bigger screen and resolution, again very quick, most up to date software
- Cons: Pricey, very pricey
- This would be my 1st pick Android tablet if price was no object.

I have a windows tablet with keyboard which I use for work mostly, for entertainment it's a bit lacking due to little app support. I also have an android tablet, it's by far the better platform for entertainment, online shopping etc. I'm just waiting for Nougat to get the split screen functionality. We have an iPad Air as well, the apps for certain things are good and it is quick but I find navigating around iOS very cumbersome (e.g. no back button, cluttered homepage, rubbish keyboards, poor multitasking etc). We have mostly Google apps too, all the Apple apps are useless if you don't have an iPhone.

Don't rule out chromebooks, once Android apps works properly on them, I would say this will rule the tablet / cheap laptop space and be the combination of the best bits from Windows and Android.

​I advised a friend to get a Linx 10 when they were £100 with the keyboard. He's delighted with it. I had it over the weekend to install Windows 10 Pro on it. Absolute nightmare. When I finally got it installed I had to fight with it for another two days to get the drivers working and to stop it from freezing. It's now working perfectly apart from it doesn't auto rotate but not a huge problem.

Personally if that deal came up again I would grab one.

Get the iPad Pro 9.7 I have it and it's been running great, extremely fast and convenient. You can buy it refurbished on apple store
