Excerpt: The Dell Latitude 10 doesn’t load Android like our rivals on test: instead, it lets you run all your favourite desktop apps with no cut corners or features stripped out. That’s because it runs full fat Windows 8 on its 10-inch display, with a nippy 1.8GHz processor to make sure slowdown is a thing of the past. But is that something you’d actually want to do without a keyboard? Check out the group test video above to see what we think.
Dell Latitude 10 review: a professional Windows 8 tablet with removable battery
8 March 2014
Conclusion: From our initial inspection, the Latitude 10 feels like a true business tablet. And that’s meant as much as a compliment as it is a criticism for its functional aesthetics. The replaceable battery isn’t hidden behind some sleek aluminum plate, and those gaping ports haven’t been left out in order to create a smooth piece of industrial design.
Excerpt: Dell’s Latitude 10 tablet is a fascinating creature. It’s the only tablet we’ve come across so far—and most likely the only one that exists—with a removable battery. It isn’t trying to be the slimmest or lightest model around, which sets it apart from everything else on the market. It uses an Atom CPU and doesn’t bother much with multimedia bells and whistles.
Dell Latitude 10 – a worthy Windows 8 competitor to the ThinkPad Tablet 2
2 June 2013
Conclusion: The Dell Latitude 10 is already on sale and it can be purchased in its basic configuration for only $499 – a very affordable price for such a device. That makes it a better choice than just about any other Windows 8 tablet (even the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 ). The Productivity Dock will cost you $100 by itself, and the price rises quite steeply if you want the full package with a 128 GB SSD, two batteries and the stylus, keyboard and mouse (you can use any keyboard and...
Summary: With all of that said, we want you to take a hard look on the Dell Latitude 10 if you’re looking for something portable and powerful. All the other elements that looked bad on our review are just minor things and is just a look on what are the cons. Great to say, there aren’t many. You won’t need a great camera on a tablet anyways, and the hard-to press buttons aren’t really much of a problem once you’re used to it.
Summary: The price difference between an Atom tablet such as the Dell Latitude 10 and a Core i5 one doesn't seem large enough to justify the performance gap. But, the Latitude 10 makes up for it in part with a very long-lasting battery.
Pros: The Dell Latitude 10 offers excellent battery life, and costs less than many other Windows 8 tablets.
Cons: With an Intel Atom processor, performance is limited, and some apps seem far better optimized for the hardware than others. Storage is limited to 64GB, and USB connections are all the slower 2.0 type.
Conclusion: The Dell Latitude 10 Enhanced Security adds an extra layer of protection to the Dell Latitude 10 tablet with Windows 8 Pro. It's the all-day, all-night Win 8 tablet to buy for your security conscious business.
Pros: Removable battery. Can run Windows XP/Vista/7/8 programs. Long battery life with standard and extended battery. Very portable. Wacom stylus option. Can be bundled with desktop dock. WWAN and GPS. Can charge via micro-USB. Has smart card reader and biometric fingerprint reader.
Cons: Somewhat underpowered for multimedia creation. No stylus storage in chassis. USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0.
