I am looking for a tablet/convertible pc for my aunt and I am undecided what to get. The main usage would be navigation and Word processing, occasionally some light photoshop/illustrator work.
I got interesting offers for a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 - i5 model (used, 2 y.o.), a new Asus T300Chi and a used Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S, respectively $340 the first one and $390 each for the Asus and the Samsung devices.
Looking at the specifications, I would definitely go for the Surface or the Samsung tab, however I am worried it could turn out to be a bad investment as the battery easily degrades and cannot be replaced; being already 2 years old, the expected remaining lifetime is quite limited.
Requirements would be at least 4GB of RAM, 64+GB of hard disk storage, possibly SSD, and 11-12 inches of screen size. Except WiFi, everything else is just a plus (BT, full-size USB ports, stylus, etc.). Budget-wise my limit is $450 including shipping, even though for used items I prefer to see them in person to run hardware tests.
Anyway, what would be your suggestions? Thank you
