Dell Latitude 10 Tablet

I am a pretty big fan of Windows Tablets and have been for some time.  I am especially excited with all the new stuff that is coming out.  One such Windows Tablet that I have been drooling over is the Dell Latitude 10 (here).  It is currently retailing for $900, but currently on a special price for $650.

I was recently visited by one of our Dell representatives at work and he had brought the sister tablet Latitude XPS 10, which is the Windows RT version.  I was able to play around with it for a bit and loved the touch, the responsiveness, and the fact that it had detachable keyboard with touchpad.  It was a very solid fit.  Unfortunately, I later found out that the Latitude 10 will not have that same keyboard.  Big disappointment if you ask me.  The Dell rep said that he would send me one when he got them in stock so I could give it a spin.  Well I just got the email and have it coming my way to give it a run.

    OH that is sweet! If I could get a decent offer on my HP Slate 500 I would buy one right now! I like my slate and I got it for a good price but that new Dell is NICE.

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing.

    Did you get the latitude 10 yet? I have been unsuccessful several times now in trying to get the screen rotation to work on my slate since I installed windows 8 upgrade. I am tired of trying. I am THIS close to buying the Latitude 10 but want to hear what you think of it.

      What do you think of the Surface? What is the difference between a Win 8 RT tablet and a Win 8 Pro tablet?

        Surface looks nice. Friend has the RT version and it seem very nice. I am not sold on the RT devices.

        I think the main thing to think about when deciding with the RT and the PRO is that the RT will be usually a lesser powerful processor and the RT is not the same OS than the Windows 8 PRO. You will also be stuck to purchase or download programs from the Microsoft Store. You wont be able to install other programs on the RT, like the Apple iPad. RT is like Apple iOS. There are some great article on the differences. I will probably be leaning toward a i5 device for my next tablet. The HP Slate and Atom processor kind of soured me.

        What is an i5 device?

      • November 20, 2012 at 5:29 pm

        An i5 Device is the Intel rating of the Processors. Intel rates them as an i3, i5, or i7. The higher the number the better the processor.

        The current set of tablets seem to be Atom based like the HP Slate 500 or they are an Intel i3 or i5 (haven’t seen a i7 tablet). They higher the processor the higher the power required to run it. You will typically see better battery life in an Atom based CPU than an “i” core CPU.

        Personally, I can live with the lower battery life with an i5 core processor.

      I haven’t gotten any notification from Dell on the Latitude 10. I have heard other rumors that there are a lot of delays with tablets, so I think that might be the case with the Latitude 10. Their site shows delays as well. I do have an email to my Dell rep on the status. I definitely looks nice. I just wish it had the detachable keyboard like the XPS 10. We’ll see. I have started looking at the Samsung ATIV SmartPC PRO, step up from the Samsung Series 7 Slate. This is an i5/4GB/128GB, but also includes the detachable keyboard. Very nice looking.
