This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Somewhere in between a flip phone and a desktop workstation lies the ultraportable category, which itself includes some wildly different pieces of equipment. For on-the-go versatility and easy usability, it's hard to beat a tablet, and one with a built-in, or officially mated, keyboard can be a traveler's dream. Here are some of the most convenient, as well as most affordable. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 03, 2019:

First off, some great picks here do not actually ship with the keyboard, but we mentioned them because their accessories are produced by the same company, and are known to work very well. That includes the iPad, Surface Pro, and Galaxy Tab S4. That iPad, for what it's worth, is widely considered the top tablet available; it's priced that way, too, unfortunately. Both Lenovos do a great job bridging the gap between phone and laptop; users seem to be in love with that watchband hinge, among other things. The Surface Go is an interesting little machine, though it sparks mixed feelings in some buyers, because Windows doesn't always work the best on 128GB drives. The Samsung Notebook 7 is for you if you'd prefer a traditional clamshell-style design. We included that Acer Switch Alpha 12 because, although it's a couple years old, it's an impressively powerful computer at a great price, albeit rather hot and heavy. It goes great with a rechargeable battery bank, incidentally.
