Information about tablets categories:  

A. Creation devices: Devices used to create materials such as Word, PowerPoint presentations, that use note-taking in a heavy way (such as with Nebo), design illustrations, etc. These devices are powerful good RAM +6GB RAM, great CPU, ample storage, and great displays. These devices also generally have active pen compatibility. Examples of such devices can be found in the table above.
