The brutal truth is that whenever you buy any Apple product, there’s going to be a better one along in a year, maybe a bit more or less. If you buy now, you get to enjoy now.And enjoy you will because, despite the complaints about the quick upgrade (it came just months after the third iPad), the 4th-gen iPad is arguably still the most desirable and, dare we say it, best tablet in town.

The design is Sony at its best: chic and unafraid of making a statement. The thin profile does mean it flexes slightly in the hand if you’re not gentle enough, but this is a small price to pay for a gadget that’s so light and comfy to hold.Though it’s out-pixelled by the iPad and Google Nexus 10, the display here is bright, sharp and realistically colourful and the Full HD resolution is all you need to play back HD video faithfully. Sound isn’t as strong as on some rivals, not least because this is a waterproof device. This means there are slightly irritating flaps on the headphone, microSD card and micro USB sockets, but they work well and being waterproof is a neat extra that means you can rest assured that the tablet will survive if you drop it in the bath or splash it in the kitchen.Could this be the best Android tablet in the world right now? And can it take on the iPad 4 for the title of overall tablet champion? We think it could well be a 'yes' to both.

If it had gone to school we imagine it would have been taunted in the playground and called things like 'lardy cakes'... But that shouldn't take away from the fact it excelled in the classroom, whereas the original Surface ran the lighter version of Windows 8 – Windows RT – the Surface Pro operates a full version of Microsoft’s latest OS.Inside the Surface Pro you’ll find the sort of hardware arrangement that you’d usually expect from a mid-range laptop. There’s a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor powering the show, backed up with 4GB of RAM and integrated Intel HD Graphics. You can also choose 64 or 128GB of speedy SSD storage. It’s a slick looking tablet with an angled, almost industrial design that lends itself well to Microsoft’s modern new look.The display of the Surface Pro is superb; a major step up from the original Surface. It’s a Full HD 1080p display and offers incredible visuals and fantastically crisp icons and fonts. check Bing for the latest dealsRead our Surface Pro reviewtopMicrosoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Microsoft Surface Pro - 4(©MSN)Google Nexus 10Google Nexus 10Google's big tab (made by Samsung) is a great tablet with a lot going for it, from its slim and pleasant profile to the amazing display which has to be seen to be believed. The specs for this gadget are strong and in practice it works well and never seems over-taxed, however much you’re doing. Mind you, some will mourn the absence of a microSD card slot, so there’s no expandable memory. Google has made strides to creating an accessible, appealing operating system in Android and this latest edition is the smoothest, least intimidating one yet. The sound is strong, and the camera as good as it can be on a machine this shape.For all that, winning over doubters from the Apple corner may still be an uphill struggle for Google. People love that aluminium casing, the simple, accessible interface and unbeaten number of tablet-specific apps that Apple has on offer. But the Nexus may definitely be the tablet that began to turn the tide away from the iPad.

The 1366 x 768 resolution is arguably nothing to write home about, but it demonstrated just enough detail for us to enjoy all of the top quality videos that we pushed through it.There's a lot to like about the Asus VivoTab Smart and very little that should put off any would-be buyers. It's one of the best bits of Windows 8 tablet hardware around and, if the software itself was a little smoother, the graphics processor inside more powerful and the battery longer lasting, then it'd be rated a lot higher than it is.

The build and design are solid and stylish and with a 2-cell Lithium polymer unit - the battery life is ludicrously good, this is a laptop equivalent of the Energizer Bunny. Check the latest prices with BingRead our Acer Iconia W510 reviewtopAcer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Acer Iconia W510 - 7(©MSN)Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1The biggest member of Samsung's ever expanding Galaxy Note family, the Note 10.1 boasts a more-than-reasonable​ 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos processor at its heart - making it a much slicker tablet than Sammy's original 10-inch tablet.The Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet comes loaded with Adobe Photoshop Touch in a version specially optimised for the unique stylus - the S Pen - along with a raft of other stylus friendly apps such as S Note and S Planner. The result is a tablet experience not quite like any other and, if you like the operation of the Note smartphones but feel like a bit of an idiot holding one up to your ear, this could be the mobile device for you.

The white on silver design is one that will be familiar to anyone who has picked up a Samsung Galaxy mobile device in the last year or so, but the super-sveltness of the ATIV TAB 3 is like nothing you’ve ever seen before from a Windows 8 machine.Weighing just 550g (the latest iPad is over 650g in comparison) and measuring an incredible 8.2mm thin, Samsung has also managed to squeeze in a HD 1366 x 768 display. While not Full HD 1080p, the display looks pretty great and its responsiveness seemed pretty slick for the Windows 8 touchscreen commands.

That's a PPI count of 299, the same as the Nexus 10. Toshiba claims that its 10.1-inch display is even crisper though thanks to the enhanced 3D colour and texture management, which it says gives it the "graphical edge when it comes to gaming and animation".There are also Harman Kardon DTS speakers on board, making the latest Toshiba flagship a real multimedia heavyweight.Powered by a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor, the Excite Pro runs Android 4.2 and also has a healthy 2GB of RAM for multitasking.

It's also lighter and thinner than the newer iPads, making it easier to carry around, and uses the older 30-pin connector cable, which is useful if you have a collection of existing peripherals and add-ons you want to be able to carry on using.Check out our guide: What iPad should I buy?
