Broke my iPad Pro: Need new tablet/tablet-ish device


So...I broke my 9.7 iPad Pro. I dropped it on a concrete sidewalk and here are the results.


I now need a new tablet. I'm simply not going to spend upwards of $300 for a screen replacement when I can spend just a bit more and get a new one.

My first thought, of course, was just get another iPad. Perfectly reasonable assessment. The iPad is hands down the best pure tablet by a long shot. In fact, outside of buying the failed Motorola Xoom at launch, and promptly switching to the iPad 2 7 or so months later; or the time I tried out a Surface 3, I haven't seriously considered trying anything else.

But things have now changed. I wanna try something different.

After leaving behind my iPhone and Apple Watch and inserting myself back into Android, now seems to be a great time to do so.

The question is simply what to get.

My options are the following:

Windows 10 detectables or Chromebook 2-n-1's (at least until some OEM unleashes a true Chrome OS tablet)

My budget is $600; let's hear your suggestions below.

Let's go!
