i recommend cube brand! i bought iwork 8 in 2016 still working now.
after that i realised i need a tablet with usb port so i can bring overseas and transfer files into portable hard drive. for that i bought iwork 1x.

good thing about iwork 1x is i can attach portable hard disk and watch all my videos in mrt.

nowadays quite a few brands have windows tablet. personally, I'm using a lenovo yoga book and a surface pro 2.

if you want something really portable and can do simple surfing, YouTube, word document or excel lenovo yoga book is a good fit. however please note, I used the word simple, as the unit lags the horsepower for doing too much stuff at same time.

my pro 2, though much older and heavier... still runs great. so much so that when my keyboard spoilt, I bought another keyboard off Amazon to continue using it.

but now I'm looking to get the surface book 2 15" version, for more power and simple gaming while still relatively portable.

I know there's the dell latitude 5285.

I have used it for 1.5 years and it's still working perfectly. It is charged using usb c. The only differential is prolly the price. Anyway, dropped this dell laptop at least 7 times of at least 90cm height but there is only a really miniscule dent. It is build like a tank.

Screen oso did not crack unlike the Surface Pro 4 which I owned 0.5 year ago which cracked after a drop and it is not covered by warranty. Furthermore, SP4 has temperature issues. From then on, I swore off all Surface Pro.

Then what's your budget ?
FYI, a Core M3/5 + 4Gb can do basic office and Photoshop.

Hey bro! I am actually selling a dell 5285 at a good price and it was hardly used because I'm an architect in NUS and we usually use Mac to do designing.
