Picked up, however, the weight and balance feels off, as the top-heavy clamshell feels likely to tip over at any moment.

Reviews Word on the street for the Dell Venue Pro 11

These are closer to mobile phone or iPad games than PC ones, but games such as Halo: Spartan Assault are still impressive on the Venue 11 Pro.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


This is an IPS display, so it looks good from even wide angles, and the screen isn't so glossy that you're constantly fighting glare.

But, on a small tablet-based system such as this, one might be expected to use on-screen touch controls for much of your navigation.
by c|net (Feb, 2014)
The touch pad on the keyboard dock is too small to do much more than basic on-screen navigation.

When using a low-power chip such as the Atom, you'd be right to expect excellent battery life.

That the price on the keyboard dock actually rose since we started testing the Venue 11 Pro is mind-boggling, and asking anyone to pay $160 for a clip-on keyboard, even one with a built-in battery, is a stretch.

But your $499 initial investment covers only the tablet itself, and adding the keyboard is an astounding additional $160 (it was as a little as $140 as of last week) - although the keyboard also has an extra built-in battery.

Operating System

Something with a 10- or 11-inch display feels like the most natural size floor for effective use by Windows 8, and we've seen a good number of products hit that mark, either as standard clamshell laptops, standalone tablets with optional keyboards, or hybrids that straddle the line between the two.
by c|net (Feb, 2014)
Not just the 13-inch, 15-inch, and 17-inch laptops that previous versions of Windows were mostly found on, but also 8- and 11-inch systems, with a few stragglers (12.5-inch, 14-inch) in there for good measure.

One of the more ambitious ideas for Windows 8 was that it would work equally well across a wide variety of screen sizes.

Operating system

Multimedia Multitasking test (Shorter bars indicate better performance).
by c|net (Feb, 2014)
It can even deal with some basic games, such as those found in Microsoft's Windows 8 app store.
by c|net (Feb, 2014)
Unlike some of the more plastic-feeling 10- and 11-inch Windows 8 tablets we've tested, the Venue 11 Pro could likely stand up to some rugged travel, and the soft-touch finish on the back was not especially prone to smudges or scratches.

Of course, for a more all-day experience, you'll want to add a keyboard and touch pad or mouse.
by c|net (Feb, 2014)
What we've found over the past year is that the tile interface in Windows 8 does indeed scale well on smaller screens, although the experience inside actual apps and programs is more varied, especially if you're using a touch screen as your main interface.
