A laptop in disguise

Statistics aside, as a tablet or a small laptop, the Venue 11 Pro is a joy to use. The display is bright and evenly lit, and it couldn’t be any more responsive to touch. Movies look great and it even sounds halfway decent when music emanates from the speakers. The Venue 11 Pro isn’t s...More

Statistics aside, as a tablet or a small laptop, the Venue 11 Pro is a joy to use. The display is bright and evenly lit, and it couldn’t be any more responsive to touch. Movies look great and it even sounds halfway decent when music emanates from the speakers. The Venue 11 Pro isn’t skinny, and it isn’t cheap, but it can definitely make an argument for being the best small business tablet on the market.

Strong computing power

Good gets even better?

Good gets even better? While Dell's Venue 11 Pro 7130 (Haswell i5) was almost penalized with a rating of 78% in the tablet sector, the Venue 11 Pro 7140 Broadwell update (Core M 5Y10a) reaps in more points. We tested it as a convertible alongside its keyboard dock, which we believe does the 10.8-inch device most justice.

Dell wanted to create a handy Windows office device, and achieved its goal. Long battery runtimes in conjunction with good computing performance, maintenance options, extensive productivity accessories, decent camera, silent operation, and a very good IPS screen in Full HD. The only real point of criticism that we have relates to the keyboard, which has an undefined pressure point.

Will the Broadwell tablet make a subnotebook superfluous? That is in fact the case. We can reward the Venue 11 Pro with an outstanding performance score (compared with subnotebooks, Haswell tablets). The little tablet based on the fanless Broadwell architecture reaped in scores that can often compete with the best Haswell tablets from the recent past. Dell has every conceivable accessory that predestines the Venue 11 Pro as the sole PC for everyday work with different keyboards, a tablet stand (supports two monitors), and digitizer.

The contenders in the 770 to 1000 Euro price range all have shorter runtimes. The build of Toshiba's Portégé Z10t is not as good, but it has a superior keyboard. We complained about the screen's tight opening angle of HP's Pro X2 410 G1. The Surface Pro 3 features the best build, but it is doubtful whether business users will want to get used to the cramped keys of the Type Cover 2. The tester gave Surface Pro's input devices the better rating, though. The integrated stand also allows a flatter and much more agreeable opening angle for typing.

The Venue 11 Pro is a versatile business tablet/laptop/mini all-in-one that’s surprisingly usable in all three orientations—provided you can live with the heft and smallish display (as a desktop without a second monitor, that is). This high-end model proved particularly adept at movies and presentations, but it’s a highly capable, very secure Windows 8 tablet in nearly all aspects.

Dell's most versatile professional Windows 8.1 Pro tablet yet

from Notebookcheck

Those searching for a larger-sized tablet with an acceptable detachable keyboard and touchpad, great battery life, a bright, vivid screen, and full-blown Windows 8.1 should seriously consider the merits of the Venue 11 Pro.

Those searching for a larger-sized tablet with an acceptable detachable keyboard and touchpad, great battery life, a bright, vivid screen, and full-blown Windows 8.1 should seriously consider the merits of the Venue 11 Pro. It has all of these, plus a full-sized USB 3.0 port on the tablet itself, mini-HDMI/micro-SD, and easy battery access via a screwless rear panel. Best of all, it’s just $499 MSRP (as configured) without the base, so it’s surprisingly affordable, too. Add in the base (which we personally consider to be a necessity) for another $160 and you’ve got a pretty capable convertible tablet for under $700.

A Full HD Windows 8.1 tablet that's a blend for business brilliance

from TechRadar

The Dell squares up to the Surface Pro with great versatility, better accessories and a stunning screen, and it's just as good value when bought with its best peripherals. The Surface Pro might be a bit faster, but the Venue has enough power to get the job done – if you need a tablet for work, you won't be disappointed with this.

Tablet plus accessories makes three good devices

Dell’s Venue 11 Pro ups the ante in the hybrid arena, thanks to is versatile accessories. The hardware isn’t strong enough for hardcore games or producing the next great animated short, but its three combinations were more than adequate for my entertainment and routine computing needs.

Windows slates can deliver great performance without the hefty price tags

At $500, the Dell Venue 11 Pro seems like a steal, but once you start to pack in more accessories, like the $130 MSRP Slim Tablet keyboard (the equivalent of the Surface Pro 2′s Touch 2 Cover) or the $160 MSRP Tablet Keyboard (the equivalent of the Surface Pro 2′s Type Cover but with...More

At $500, the Dell Venue 11 Pro seems like a steal, but once you start to pack in more accessories, like the $130 MSRP Slim Tablet keyboard (the equivalent of the Surface Pro 2′s Touch 2 Cover) or the $160 MSRP Tablet Keyboard (the equivalent of the Surface Pro 2′s Type Cover but with added battery life and more ports), the configurations start to get expensive and into entry-level Ultrabook categories. And even though you may not get Surface Pro 2-level performance at $500, the Atom Venue 11 Pro is still powerful and affordable while delivering remarkable versatility with great battery life.

A 10in Windows 8 tablet that makes perfect sense for business

By focusing on the business market with the Venue 11 Pro Dell has sensibly avoided any comparisons with Android, iOS and even Windows RT tablets. Instead, the Venue 11 Pro’s main rival is Microsoft’s own Surface Pro 2, although the Surface Pro 2 costs almost twice as much as the Venue 11 Pro.

If you fancy the Venue 11 Pro it might be a good idea to invest in the keyboard dock, as the touchscreen simply is best used for typing a quick email and web browsing rather than working on involved MS Office documents. Even so, for sheer flexibility, the Venue 11 Pro provides a good alternative to the Microsoft Surface Pro 2.

Overall, the Dell Venue 11 Pro is quite a decent Windows tablet.

Overall, the Dell Venue 11 Pro is quite a decent Windows tablet. Considering that Microsoft does not offer WWAN, the lower price is even more appealing - as long as the lower performance of the i3 processor is not an issue. Users who work on construction sites or those needing a bright display should take a look at the Panasonic Toughpad FZ G1, which is the best choice for the above scenarios. Those looking for something similar to Microsoft's Surface Pro 2 with WWAN and replaceable battery should definitely look at the Venue 11 Pro, since there is not really another alternative out there at the moment.

The screen of the Venue Pro 11 needs to be easier to turn up to proper levels, but the tablet performs well for its price and is an option for business users who want a convertible tablet with Window 8. Its battery life was also useful, making this low-power Intel Atom version a more affordable alternative to expensive Windows tablets such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 2.
