The CHIP leaderboard features more than 40 tablets in every performance and price range. Depending on the application, high-end tablets such as the iPad can even replace the notebook, while very simple tablets are only suitable for consuming media. The inexpensive Fire tablets from Amazon, for example, are not work devices, but are designed for shopping, reading and streaming films and series. In principle, the same applies to all other tablets that cost less than around 200 euros – this tablet class simply has too little power to be able to work properly with it. Of course, simple texts can also be written with it. And this is usually very convenient, because tablets usually support operation via USB and Bluetooth keyboard.
In the following table, we present you with four compact tablets in one table, some of which meet high-end requirements and some that represent a cheap alternative that is still easy to work with.
