Surface Book 2 and Kindle Fire HD Top List

2017 Best Tablets are from Microsoft and Amazon

Tablet Reviews: The Surface Book 2 and Amazon’s Kindle Get Top Honors

Do you want the best tablet on the market? If money is no object, go for the Microsoft Surface Book 2. That is the recommendation of David Milman, president of RESCUECOM, whose computer repair company headquartered in upstate New York repairs tens of thousands of computers annually.

Why? Not only is the Surface Book 2 a great tablet, it is also a top of the line laptop. “There is no question that the Surface Book 2 is Microsoft’s most powerful laptop to date,” says Milman.

It also has perhaps the most unique feature among tech devices of any kind: an uncoiling hinge that allows users to detach the 13 or 15 inch screen to use as a standalone tablet. While there may be tablets that are as large as the Surface Book 2, there is no tablet yet created that can dock to perform as a laptop, thus allowing for much more powerful and faster performance than it ever could without having the processing power of a laptop.

While Apple has sacrificed a bit of power and performance for thinner, more lightweight designs in its newest laptops, the Surface Book 2 goes the opposite direction. It is not as lightweight or portable as many laptops available, but it is faster and performs better. Add to that Microsoft’s claim of a 17-hour battery life (when not in tablet mode), and it easily bests others even in its higher price range - $1,500 to start.

Let’s say that is too much for you. If that is the case, you’ll want to go with Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD tablet which, amazingly, costs less than $100. It has long been one of the most popular tablets on the market, and for good reason: the display is beautiful, it is simple in design but not ugly, large but not bulky, and features solid overall performance.

It was the Kindle that accounted for Amazon’s domination over other brands and its number one spot in RESCUECOM’s Back to School 2017 Computer Reliability Report . It has the fewest issues causing performance concerns of any kind among tablets currently available to consumers, meaning it will last you a longer time than any other tablet on the market and perform well for you as long as you own it.

The Kindle Fire HD, as its name suggests, has very crisp, clean, bright visuals whether you’re browsing the Internet, reading a book downloaded from the many thousands of options available to peruse through its built-in app and marketplace, or playing one of myriad games available for purchase through Google Play. There are also many free options from which you can choose.

The Kindle Fire also gives unique access to Amazon Prime and certain perks that go with it. While it doesn’t have the same speed or storage as, say Apple’s iPad Pro, it does offer plenty to make it worth the purchase at a mere fraction of the cost.

...Fearing that my computer was really shot, I called the company recommended by my daughter. Rescuecom was so very friendly and competent and I didn't feel like I was being treated like an idiot. After trying to fix the problem remotely, I had to take the tower into their facility. The problem was taken care of by Anthony Buckley and he did a yeoman's job getting my computer back in the world of the living. He explained everything in terms that made me understand what the heck was going on with my machine. I highly recommend Rescuecom for any computer problems you may have. It is good to know their are people that know their jobs to the hilt. Thank you Rescuecom. less
