Which tablet is the best? There's no definite answer, as there is something to suit everyone, but follow our list of 2014's cream of the crop for a quick guide on the models you should be eyeing up.
Lenovo ThinkPad 8
Lenovo's latest tablet, this new 8-inch device will run on full Windows 8.1 with a 1920x1200 display. Showcased at CES 2014 in Las Vegas, the ThinkPad 8 has 2GB of memory, up to 128GB of storage, an 8MP HD rear camera (2MP front camera) and can come with 4G LTE/3G and/or Wi-Fi.
Weighing a neat 430g, it's not too bad on the wrist for a smaller tablet, and battery life can get up to 8 hours with the new Intel Bay Trail technology inside. It also ships with Microsoft Office bundled in, so that's a plus point. It should be available very soon, probably priced at around £350 as the US Wi-Fi release has a price tag of $399.
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro
12 inches! 12 inches of 1600x2560 HD tablet screen real estate. That's what you can get for £649 if you pick up one of Samsung's new Galaxy NotePro tablets. For all that money, however, you do get an octa-core processor with four 1.9GHz and four 1.3GHz cores!
It also features an 8MP camera, Android 4.4 KitKat, and an interface called Magazine UX which is three customisable screens: one for work, one for personal, and one for social networks.
