What's a good tablet for doing spreadsheets?

Episode 1526 (1:58:18)

Diane from Rancho Bernardo, CA
Apple iPad 9.7" with Pencil

Diane is looking to replace her tablet. She'd like a 10" model and had Samsung in the past. What's her best choice? Rich says that the Apple iPad really is the best tablet out there, and it's the best value. It may cost a little more, but the ecosystem is more vast, the apps are better written, and the user base is exponentially larger. Since she needs one that works with spreadsheets, The iPad works great with Google Sheets. The screen size of the iPad is 9.7". If she wants something over 10", then the iPad Pro is going to be the way to go, but it is a little more expensive.

If she specifically needs Excel, then Rich recommends looking at the Microsoft Surface Go.

Is Open Office any good? Rich says that Google Docs is far better.
