The folks of Forbes magazine had the opportunity to get cozy with the Dell XPS 10, a Windows RT tablet with keyboard dock, that actually looks quite nice. After spending a few hours with the product, they shared the impressions, which we’ll detail in the following lines.

Dell-XPS-10

Dell included on this device a Qualcomm 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, but that’s not a problem, since that’s still a pretty powerful processing solution. The Surface RT and VivoTab RT may rely on the quad core Tegra 3, but as benchmarks have shown the dual core Qualcomm is sometimes more potent than the Nvidia quad core. Forbes claims that the switching between apps is instantaneous, the Modern UI is snappy and the Office 2013 suite is responsive.

Web browsing is also pretty smooth and there’s no slowdown or stuttering anywhere. The XPS 10 adopts the same chrome trim and soft touch paint that the XPS 12 uses and that’s a swiveling Windows 8 ultrabook. The display uses an IPS panel with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, bright whites and deep blacks. The dock keyboard latches firmly into place, it seems, so everything about this product is OK.

  • That’s a great product, but I think it needs to lower the price a little bit to win market share.
