The 6 best tablets for getting work done in 2014

Jared Newman | Aug. 22, 2014
Can you be productive with a tablet? You betcha, provided you buy the right one

But what it lacks in tech specs, the VivoTab Note 8 makes up for with value. It's currently on sale at the Microsoft Store for $249, with a free copy of Microsoft Office. It also includes a small active stylus with a built-in holster. As a quick and dirty way to throw Office, OneNote, and other essential Windows apps into your coat pocket, it works.

Dell Venue Pro 11 7237 (Security)

The security edition of Dell's very powerful, super-secure Venue 11 Pro is a late arrival to this list (which is why it's not mentioned in the accompanying video). It's an expensive tablet at $1081, but it features an Intel Core i5 processor with Intel's vPro technology, TPM (Trusted Platform Module) support, and a smart-card reader for enhanced hardwired security and remote management.

Those features will appeal to customers at the enterprise level, naturally, but businesses at any level will appreciate this Windows tablet's speed and its fingerprint scanner. Dell offers a comprehensive collection of accessories: two types of keyboards, and a dock for converting the tablet into an all-in-one PC that can support a second display.

Yes you can!

Whether you use it as your primary mobile device or an adjunct to a full-blown laptop, the right tablet can help you be more productive--especially when you need to travel light.
