If your daily calendar has one meeting after another lined up, and you are constantly fretting about the next presentation in office or to a client, chances are, you need a more capable device. Here are some of the most capable options launched this year.

Apple iPad Pro

49,900 onwards (9.7-inch version); 67,900 onwards (12.9-inch version)

Microsoft Surface Pro 4

89,990 onwards; 12,490 (Surface Type Cover Keyboard)

The Surface Pro 4 is by far the best example of a flexible computing device that runs Microsoft’s Windows operating system—it can be used as a tablet, and attach the keyboard dock, and it becomes a competent laptop. Unlike many hybrid PCs that compromise a lot in terms of the quality of the keyboard and the general ease of use, the Surface Pro 4 excels in all possible usage scenarios. It weighs 786g, which is less than even the thinnest laptops money can buy and is 8.4mm thick, which is smartphone territory. It has a magnesium casing, and there is a USB 3.0 port and a microSD card slot on the tablet itself. The 12.3-inch screen (2,736x1,824 pixels) is bright, with good sharpness and colour accuracy. It runs the latest Intel processors with powerful graphics, and offers battery life in the range of 5-12 hours, depending on usage.

BlackBerry Priv


HP Envy 13


Microsoft smartphones with Continuum

5,927 (Display Dock); works with Lumia 950 ( 43,699) and Lumia 950 XL ( 49,399)
