The Best Windows Tablets (2-in-1 Tablets)
Windows on smartphones has failed, but the OS is still the leading solution for PCs. There are hardly any Windows tablets without keyboards anymore or the usage concept for these tablets is designed with attachable keyboards in mind (Surface Pro). This is why the following Top 10 ranking only includes 2-in-1 devices consisting of tablet and keyboard dock, also called detachable. All Yoga like devices with 360 degree hinges are listed in our ranking of 2-in-1 laptops. The following ranking might be interesting as well:

- The Best Tablets (traditional tablets running Android or iOS)
- The Best Phablets (smartphones with particularly large display)

If you want a tablet with Windows, you do not want to get stuck with the first app due to performance issues. Almost all devices on the market are shipped or at least offered with real SSDs and Core i processors (with and without fan). Core m/Y turned out to be some kind of interim solution, which is primarily found in detachables (Latitude 7285, Surface Book Pro 2017 Core M, …) to run more efficient and manage longer battery runtimes.
All models in this ranking claim to provide notebook levels of performance, at least close to it. The problem is that Core i system often throttle their performance significantly after load periods of 5-20 seconds to avoid causing thermal issues. You should read our full reviews to get details on each device.
