For the past few weeks I have been privileged to use the Dell Venue 11 Pro tablet.
The sexy device provides a flexible way to switch from a tablet and a laptop – it works as a compromise between a tablet and a desktop PC.
This enables users to enjoy its versatile tablet experience.
The tablet, priced at R15 540, comes with a slim detachable keyboard cover that turns this sleek machine into a powerful notebook suitable for business people.
But be warned, the Dell Venue 11 Pro is heavy. It is too large to use with one hand for long.
However, apart from its impressive 10.8 inch screen, the advantage the Dell Venue tablet has is its multiple ports. It has more ports than its rivals.
I was also impressed by the fact that I was able to install Photoshop and FTP on the Dell Venue. Uploading TechFinancials.co.za was a breeze.
The Dell Venue is a great device for users who want to enjoy the functions of a laptop and a tablet at the same time.
The tablet’s battery life is very good – it lasts for 12 hours.
I was also impressed with the Dell Venue speakers. The speakers provide quality audio for listening to music or watching videos on YouTube.
The two cameras on the back and front of the tablet allow users to take quality images as well as capture videos in full HD.
Dell Venue is incredibly fast and is fantastic and it looks very nice.
It is an excellent Windows tablet that will never let you down.
