    Hey folks,

    I'm in the market for a tablet for business purposes. I'm a Personal Trainer and rather than having to take notes down of someone's session in a book then transfer it, I want to be able to do it all on the one piece of kit.

    Use Google Drive, Sheets and Docs for all my work so something that can intergrate that would be awesome. I know you can download apps but was considering an android/windows tablet for having it all together.

    Want to be able to attach a keyboard to it + mouse to it, bluetooth preferably.

    Not sure what other features I'd need.

    Good battery, sometimes I run 4-6 sessions one after another.
    Something with a decent processing speed for switching between apps.

    Anything else you can suggest would be great.

    Budget is £700.

    I really like my surface 3. It's light-weight, has a good battery life, and I like the pen. So I'd suggest trying out a few models in the lineup.

    I had the Galaxy note 3 several years ago, worked great and it had a pen that was able to translate my writing to text. I'm sure the tech has improved in later generation.

    You will probably want a camera, as you can get patient permission to get a headshot to make remembering then easier, and photos of them doing Range of motion to document.

    If you're not opposed to chinese stuff I'd recommend the Chuwi Corebook CWI542. It's up to 470$ on sale atm, with pretty good specs.

    1. Intel Core m3-7Y30
    2. 8 gigs of DDR3 ram
    3. 128 gb ssd + 128gb TF card slot
    4. 13.3 inch touch screen (1920x1080 res) plus keyboard and touchpad
    5. Dual cameras (5.0 mp rear and 2.0 mp front)
    6. 8 hours of battery life
    7. Stylus pen included
    8. Full connectivity (dual band wifi, bluetooth 4.0)
    As far as chinese brands go, Chuwi is pretty reputable, almost on par with Xiaomi. These specs should run Win10 pretty fast.
