Large Tablet v Chromebook?

I have been pretty happy with relatively inexpensive large tablets.  I was particularly fortunate to pick up a couple of Nuvision 13.3 tablets for (as it turns out) blow out prices. (<$100)

It looks like now larger tablets are more difficult to find and more expensive (I want at least 16 GB ram and 13 inch or larger (but not too large) screen).

At the same time, it looks like Chromebooks are coming down in price.

So, for those of us using Android OS (and want larger screens), is Chromebook the way to go? 

I suppose it would have to be touch screen and either detachable or flippable?

Thoughts?

I just purchased an Acer R13 Convertible Chromebook and absolutely love the setup with Mobilesheets Pro. You can do all your editing in the laptop mode and then flip the screen all the way around into a beautiful 13.3" tablet screen. Works perfectly. Also works perfect with the Airturn BT-105. 10 hours battery life to top it off.

For large monitors, be sure they fit on your music stand. Many of them are fairly thin, but the cables stick straight out the back, making it impossible to put them on a standard music stand or piano. You could cut a hole in a music stand, I suppose, but that's not an option for a piano. Some have the cables plug in vertically, with a recess for the cable and connector; this makes them much more suitable for this.

I purchased an Acer 13 too, MSP works great with just one exeption. When I connect my AirTurn BT-200 to the Chromebook, it turns from tablet mode to laptop mode and there is no way to change it back, only if I disconnect the pedal.
I just wonder if you have the same issue?

For what it's worth, I've been using my Samsung S10 phone and an Asus Zenscreen Touch 15.5" portable monitor. The monitor has it's own battery, and the Samsung phone has DEX mode which turns it into a desktop-like computer when connected to a display. Since the monitor has a touchscreen I just annotate on the screen. The touchscreen isn't quite as sensitive or responsive as a tablet, but it's something you can easily compensate for.

It's relatively inexpensive (definitely cheaper than 2 tablets, and all but the smallest chromebooks), and I go through about 10% battery on both the monitor and the phone in about an hour. As long as I don't plan on playing for 10 hours and I walk into rehearsal on more than 30% charge, I'm gold.
