Amazon Alexa is also compatible and that makes your life easier with smart commands!
Apple TV 4K
Apple TV is compatible with the Siri remote, which can take voice-activated commands and searches. It can stream up to 4K, but you can't do on CBS All Access. It's still a great feature to have for your other streaming services! The A10X Fusion chip means you'll be getting top-tier performance. Get this 32GB device or upgrade to the 64GB for $20 more
CBS All Access is compatible with any of your Apple iPads, so why not go Pro? This particular Pro has an 11-inch display (although it goes up to a gigantic 12.9-inch display) and you can watch shows and movies on an edge-to-edge liquid retina display. The battery lasts for 10 hours and you can the new Apple Pencil for inking, if you wish.
Roku is the most wallet-friendly streaming brand out there and it still works great. All of the Roku devices are compatible with CBS All Access, but the HD, 4K, and HDR aren't compatible with the app. Regardless, 4K is a perfect feature to have in your home for any other streaming services you use. You can even plug a pair of headphones into the side of the remote to watch your favorite shows without disturbing roommates or waking up the kids!
The Chromecast brings you 4K streaming with HDR. You can't use the 4K streaming with CBS All Access, but its perfect for any of your other streaming services as well. You can even use Google Voice to control the device. There are over 1,000 other apps that are also compatible with this device so if you change your mind about CBS you can rest easy knowing that this device won't start collecting dust on a shelf!
Surface Laptop 2
According to Windows Central, Surface Laptop 2 is the way to go when it comes to affordable laptops.

It has a high-resolution touchscreen with 3:2 aspect ratio, battery life that lasts through a workday, and it comes standard with Windows 10 in S mode.
Any PlayStation 4 will be able to download the CBS All Access app, but you want the best one. The PlayStation Pro holds 1TB of memory, supports 4K TV for all the other streaming apps besides CBS All Access, and has the best HDR abilities that make this console display your favorite shows, games, and movies in the best possible way. It's upgraded system means that you'll also get smoother performance and less lagging!
Xbox One S
Any of the Xbox systems will support the CBS All Access app so why not save money and go for a bundle? With Xbox One S you can watch your 4K streaming, but also have a console in the house for your gaming pleasures. This bundle comes with the ever-famous Minecraft and the best starter pack you would need for the game!
Above all the PlayStation has to be my top pick. It's the perfect family console for streaming and gaming. The sleak and stylish design looks great on any TV stand and blends well with just about any design you have for your living room. Besides, when you get tired of gaming or watching shows you can always hook up the PlayStation VR and have a grand ol' time.
