Tablet or Laptop?

I'm in the market for either a tablet or small laptop to use during the summer in Vegas. Ideally I'm looking for something that isn't too bulky and have decent battery life so I can play online bracelet events while at the poker table. What have you had success with? Was thinking about a Surface Pro or IPad but wasn't sure if there were compact laptops that made sense as well.

Please only do this in tournaments and don't ruin every cash game you are in.

Re: Tablet or Laptop?

Im kinda oldschool, so I prefer a laptop for everyday use. From a poker table logistics standpoint though I'd have to think that a tablet is far superior to a laptop. Do you really want to deal with a laptop and it's obstructive flip up screen while you're grinding long tournaments?

I don't know how it compares to any tablets out there in the last two years or so, but I have an nVidia Shield and I've enjoyed the crap out of it. It can also handle games at a relatively high framerate although battery life isn't the best around when doing so.

Thanks for all the feedback. Will probably go the tablet route.
