Dell has just announced a new version of their Venue 11 Pro. Instead of an Intel Atom processor, the Venue 11 Pro now comes with Intel’s new Core M processor, making this tablet faster and more efficient.
The display of the Venue 11 Pro stays the same at 10.8-inch with a full HD resolution. Although the product page for the Venue 11 Pro states that it uses IPS technology for the display, their specification sheet shows a TN TFT panel instead. Other than that, the new Venue 11 Pro comes with a choice of 64GB or 128GB SSD storage, 4GB DDR3L RAM, an Intel Core M 5Y10a processor, and a 10-point capacitive touchscreen. Dell also claims that the new Venue 11 Pro is also 15% thinner than the previous model and utilises a fanless design – something only possible with the Core M chips.
As for docking options, the Venue 11 Pro can be connected to Dell’s full-size mobile keyboard (effectively making it a 2-in-1 laptop) and a desktop docking station which expands your connectivity options, turning this tablet into an all-in-1 PC. The keyboard dock used by the previous generation Venue 11 Pro also will be compatible with this newer model; companies looking to upgrade their tablet would not have to purchase a new one.
In terms of connectivity, the new Venue 11 Pro comes with a full-sized USB 3.0 port, micro HDMI slot, Bluetooth 4.0, a MicroSD card slot, and a headphone jack.
The new Venue 11 Pro is slated for release on 11th November on their US web store from $700 (RM2340).
