Microsoft Surface Pro 7 Commercial Platinum - 12.3", 1.2GHz Dual-Core, Intel® Core™ i3-1005G1 Processor, 4GB RAM, 128GB SSD Storage, 1 Year Warranty
Saving your child’s back
Worried about carrying the weight of a laptop to and from school? Surface Pro tablets run the same operating software as a Windows computer, while weighing less (between 775g to 790g).
More ports than the 2018 iPad Pro, 12.9”
It has two USB ports, and a Micro SD slot—perfect for uploading photos, or cheaply adding extra storage space.
It’s also great to listen to music privately with, featuring an AUX headphone jack, as well as a HDMI port for connecting to a larger screen.
Plus, it’s a little cheaper than the aforementioned iPad Pro, if you’re worried about burning holes in your pockets. And it’s most affordable versions have more storage than said Apple equivalent (128GB, as opposed to 64GB).
It can run the full version of Adobe Photoshop
And, if you buy the Surface Pen with it, you can even try out digital painting! For best results, we recommend buying a Surface Pro 7 with 16GB RAM.
If your child’s just starting to show an interest in digital creativity, it’s about the same price as buying a laptop with a separate graphics tablet—and it saves them from having to carry both devices, which can be quite heavy.
Being a tablet, it’s also great for writing and sketching notes by hand, directly on the screen.
A stiff, built-in Kickstand
The innovative Kickstand allows the tablet to be set at many different angles, and holds the tablet well; it takes firm hand pressure to change the stand’s setup, so it’s difficult to accidentally move.
We recommend purchasing the Surface Pro Type Cover with this tablet, as it has a built-in keyboard which gives you the full, laptop experience without compromising on light-weight versatility.
