I am looking to get either a laptop or tablet for college use. I am a software engineering student and I would like the ability to take interactive notes on something like a tablet with Microsoft one note or similar software. A somewhat smaller screen for lightness and portability would be good too. I also would like to be able to do a bit of software developing on the device as well. I’ve looked into surfaces but not sure if they are powerful enough for development.

Does anyone know of a tablet and or laptop tablet hybrid that would work well for this and wouldn’t break the bank. 1000 usd is my absolute max budget. Thanks for the help.
