I managed to lose my 4.5 year old iPad mini 3. So it was time for a new mobile computer anyway. I’m thinking of a larger iPad or a Surface device for writing on the train. The bluetooth keyboard options for the mini were too small and not great.
Priority is writing with a comfortable keyboard built into the travel case. I own Scrivener software for both PC and iOS, so I would be using that on either an iPad or the Surface.
Secondly, I do work on the train using OWA linked to my work account. I can use either the PC or iOS version.
Thirdly is gaming. This is where the Surface would win, as my Steam library of non-high-end games is very extensive, and most of my iOS games can be played on my phone.
Thoughts on iPad (larger than a mini) with a bluetooth keyboard case or going with a Surface (don’t know the various options here, and whether they include a keyboard)? Ideal budget would be $700-900. I have enough accumulated American Express points to make cover an entire purchase of that size. Thanks!
EDIT: To confuse this further, I’m not opposed to the Lenovo Yoga table thingie either.
