I've had quite a few tablets over the years and haven't really used one to any extent. I don't really game on them, but I do play angry birds 2 during #2 and that's about it.
This is how I'd break down the tablet market:
Tons of manufacturers make them, but most are very low end or very out of date or both. Samsung makes a higher end tablet, but is very much in the planned obsolescence scene. You'll get no more than 2 years out of one before stuff happens. If you get more, awesome. I haven't had good luck with Samsung Android devices. I'd buy an Asus Android tablet if they still make higher end models. If not, then it's tricky if you need GPU and CPU power. Amazon fire tablets are technically Android too, but they're very low end. If you don't need a fast CPU or GPU, then they can work for you. I use mine for basic web browsing and looking at recipes. It works well as a Home Automation controller too. To be fair, any decent Android tablet will work for what I use it for.
Solid support for an extended amount of time. Can have a higher cost of ownership depending on the model and what you need. I still say the iPad Pros should run macOS, but whatever. I don't buy Apple products just because I don't like their approach to things, but as a long time IT consultant that focuses on mobility, they make the easiest to manage devices. You know what you're going to get and the software is pretty solid. Samsung can't say that at all. IMHO, iPads still cost too much, but my use case is very basic.
I have a very nice Acer tablet that I got to use while traveling. I love it. It's been 100% solid from day 1 and have never had any reason to replace it. It's basically a Surface clone. People really like the Surface products and don't complain much outside of specific models having bugs. They are expensive though, and REW would work just fine. They are a traditional PC too, so fixing issues or updating them isn't a problem. Don't really have to rely on the manufacturer for OS updates. Especially if you put something other than Windows on one of the tablets.
That's my brief summary, but it can be much more complex than that depending on what all you'd like a tablet to do.
