Fall has given us a few new tablet launches of flagship tablets, and with that the list of the most powerful tablets has changed for November as well, as Apple, Lenovo, Microsoft, and other brands have introduced tablets of new sizes, new features, and new technologies.

So here are all the most powerful tablets of November of each OS, including iPadOS, Android, Windows, and Chrome. The tablets and 2-in-1 tablets are sorted by size, starting with the largest ones.

The prices are the original launch prices, though some of these can naturally be found on sale this weekend.

Still among the newest 2-in-1 tablets in November, as well as the largest two tablets. A popular Windows 10 2-in-1 among professionals, especially engineers, and now offers additional Nvidia GPU options and as much as 32GB RAM.

Apple iPad 10.2 (2020)
Released on September 18th with a powerful Apple A12 processor and faster RAM, this upgraded 10.2-inch iPad can perform just as well as some Windows tablets at more than twice the price, and it fits optional keyboards too which will turn it into a cheap 2-in-1 iPad.

10.1 $279 Android 10 1,900 5,790

Chuwi Hi10 XR
The upgraded new 10.1-inch Windows 2-in-1 tablet is a good alternative to the Surface Go 2, with a slightly larger screen, stiffer keyboard, and different performance.

Lenovo Chromebook Duet
As far as Chromebook tablets goes, this isn’t as powerful as Google’s Pixel tablet, but it’s the leading Chrome tablet in the 10-inch category, and also win’s because the keyboard is included in the price.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
10.1 $299 Chrome OS 1,380 5,510

Lenovo Chromebook Duet

Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen 8.0 (2019)
A very user friendly tablet with Samsung’s S Pen digitizer/stylus, and enough power for the tasks that an 8-inch tablet will be put through.

Apple iPad mini 5
The iPad mini 5 is a pocket rocket that’s powerful enough to shame many laptops, a fact that’s still lost on many. And now that it has support for the Apple Pencil digitizer, it is even more attractive. Optional keyboards are also available. Launched for $399, its price has been cut to $349 since then.

Size Price OS Single-Core Multi-Core
7.9 $349 iPadOS 4,810 11,480

Amazon Fire 7
While there are 7-inch Android 10 tablets on the market today for under $100, they still tend to fail on too short battery life, and as strange as it may seem, the Fire 7 is actually the most powerful 7-inch tablet in November based on the benchmark scores.
