The Dell Venue 11 Pro seems to be a small laptop, but when you look closely, you’ll discover a tablet with an optional keyboard dock. The device is a Windows computer at heart, but still it’s a tablet from the Venue series if you want to get technical.


This is not the first device of this kind I’ve seen, since the Dell Venue 11 Pro has got to be part of a dozen of notebook/tablet hybrids with Windows launched this year. Such devices have CPUs ranging from Intel Bay Trail to Intel Core i5 Haswell. This product will go on sale in November and the $500 and up price is not as steep as I would have expected.


The entry level model will pack an Intel Atom Z3770 Bay Trail quad core CPU, as well as 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Dell will also offer a stronger model, with 4 or 8 GB of RAM, up to 256 GB of SSD and Intel Pentium, Core i3 or i5 processors. All the units will sport 10.8 inch screens with IPS panels and Full HD resolutions, WiFi, Bluetooth, USB 3.0, microSD, micro HDMI, 8 MP cameras and 2 MP webcams.

The battery will range from a 30 Whr unit to a 37 Whr one.
