Samsung Galaxy TabPro S
The Galaxy TabPro S is the latest Surface Pro competitor: a tablet with a click-in keyboard that's powerful enough to potentially replace a laptop. As a first-generation product, it excels in tablet mode, offering both a thin design and long battery life -- a rare combination. But the keyboard needs work: It's cramped layout makes typos inevitable. Perhaps Samsung could retool the keyboard, but keep the same magnetic connector, making it easy for early adopters to upgrade.
