5 out of 5 eggsGreat notebook/tablet

Pros: Very well built. One of the best keyboard touch pads that I've ever used. Full install of Windows7. Laptop responds well, use it to remote desktop into work pc all of the time. Tablet works well. Light compared to the previous tablet I've had for five years. Battery life has been fine for me. Use the tablet as an eReader. I like the non-slip surface that the laptop is covered with.

Cons: The tablet hand gestures take some work to get it right. Contemplating using a stylus.

Other Thoughts: I think DELL go this one right. As other have stated, don't compare it to an IPAD. It's a small powerful laptop that can also pose as a tablet. If you cannot decide between a netbook and a tablet, go for this one.

4 out of 5 eggsIPAD Look-A-Like

Pros: Versatile. Responding to emails/chats/IM's are always faster with a keyboard. Can use this for work and play. Nice "chicklets" keyboard. Sturdy feel without fear of splitting in half.

Cons: So-so battery life. Can definitely use a higher capacity.

Other Thoughts: I gave this a 4 star and only 1 star less due to battery performance. Judge this for what it is. Comparing this to an IPAD will just add confusion.

5 out of 5 eggsBest of both worlds

Pros: For more than half the price of what you'd pay for a netbook and a tablet, you get both in one. Thankfully it comes with 7 and not XP.

It's the only one of its kind so it's the best, and while I may list a lot of cons and other thoughts, despite all that and the pure slowness of running 7 on a slow system this is worth it until another company makes a better one. No reason to wait for that, you'll enjoy this one if you have patience.

Cons: The screen needs to be aligned exactly with your eyes or it gets dark. You can't lay it down as a tablet and expect to view it from an angle. Windows 7 is amazing but SLOW on this machine. You could always dual boot Ubuntu, I'm personally going to dual boot 7/Android.

The sheer amount of bloatware is mind boggling. I was removing so many things I think I ended up removing things I wanted. It was all a blur, it would have taken me years to remove it all at a normal human's pace.

When you flip the screen and close the lid, the camera remains on the inside. You can't use this as a tablet and video chat- whoever made that design flaw is kicking themselves- hard.

Only two usb ports. A hub is mandatory.

I can't tell you about the dock, because I'm not paying $100 for something that is literally useless.

Most importantly: it's Dell. I hope other companies begin making these, and I hope they don't feel like kid's toys like this one. CHEAP plastic. Cheap. Cheap. Cheap.

Other Thoughts: With all those cons, this is still the only thing of its kind and it is 100% worth buying over any other netbook and tablet combo separate, you're going to get the exact same experiences for much cheaper.

I can't put this as a con because I'm probably the only person to think of it, feel free to use this idea for yourself though: I flip the screen but keep the lid open, facing the keyboard away from me. This way I can put my larger usb keyboard in front of the screen without the little keyboard getting in the way. When I do this, the screen doesn't automatically flip itself but thankfully intel was smart enough to have rotation options right in the task bar. You're welcome for this amazing idea.

I'm not sure if it's just me but 90% of the time the touch screen's inaccurate. I'm more than confident in my hand/eye coordination, but I still can't say with confidence that it's the screen's fault, so you'll just have to see how it works for you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mini computer

Pros: I believe this notebook has great hardware. It includes a hyper-threaded dual core CPU, which gives the computer alone enough power to meet almost any software. I have dual booted Windows 7, and Ubuntu Linux, and it works like a charm. The touch screen is fast and very responsive. I bought this as a small backup computer for my developing (when I'm sitting on the couch or in bed). It fulfills my needs very well.

Cons: A little pricey, but I believe it is worth it. The battery charge only lasts 3 hours or so max, which is actually pretty low for a net book. But we also must consider the power it holds. Could use more ports.

Other Thoughts: The port issue can be fixed with buying the dock, but I find that dock extremely hard to find. I really find this a great computer for using on side tasks and stuff. Dell really did come up with a great idea on this notepad. I don't like how rigid the other convertible laptop style is. This flip style is very neat.

4 out of 5 eggsdell duo initial review

Pros: windows isnt crippled like andoid, bb 6, ios, etc etc...

trillian for free, print drivers built in. touch is nice. will load up a full office suite when i pick up another copy from school for 5$. hahaha. 64bit windows ult is around 8$. just saying.

no app market to sift through junky useless worthless apps that do nothing.

so far so good. working as expected.

screen is plenty bright.

there seems to be a pen setting for touch screen. hope to get one and try it out.

the "reviewers" who claim there isnt a keyboard while in tablet have obviously never had this in their hands. I can log in by tapping the icon for the keyboard, then it brings it up and lets me type in the pass word. then it hides. VERY SMOOTH!!! its also hidden ont he le

2 usb ports...

the design is slick. LOVE that it folds up notebook style. no need for a sleeve. toss in backpack and go.

1.5ghz dual core. 1.5...not 1 like the others.

2gb ram on this thing is more than enough.

Cons: my only concern for possible issue is the screen viewing angles. if you are gonna view it dead on all the time youre fine if else you might have issues.

wireless n seems to run at 65Mbps. but it did dl firefox at 2.2MBps. maybe its throttled for power saving like my blackberry. dunno. not like anyone here has 65Mbps connections anyways.

Other Thoughts: received it sucks...but thats another story...

the dell duo WAS sluggish and slow until uninstalled the useless mcafee. uninstalled a bunch of other misc applications that were bogus . most from dell.

now? runs faster in every way than my old old barton core 2500xp with the old 9600xt ati card. win 7 runs perfectly smooth so far. not laggy at all. im not a gamer and some of you shouldnt even try it with this. the duo i dont think was designed for that.

oh, win 7 is nice. you know how you cant print to your home printer from that useless android sw and blackberry 6 doesnt either but the built in wondows found my wireless printer and install the software and drivers itself then immediately printed a test page. id LOVE to see android, bb, ios etc try that. all of those are crippled in one way or another sw and hw wise vs this duo.

3 out of 5 eggsPricey extras become useless...get something more powerful

Pros: Very portable
Easy tohandle while in tablet mode
Decent, hmmm, yeah decent battery

Cons: Very under powered for full blown Win 7
The tablet feature that raises the price and cuts the performance grow old after awhile. My wife uses this duo for school. At first she couldn't get enough of the touch screen. Now she uses it as an unpowered Laptop. KEY NOTE Windows 7 is not designed are does it function well as a tablet OS.

Other Thoughts: Dell is definately on to something here. Size is perfect, weight, is decent. Lets get a better UI, slightly faster pcu, and definetely some more memory. 3 eggs for the future of this product.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: I don't use it as my everyday laptop but it is great for travel. I also take it to class to take notes, etc.

Screen flip position is magnetically controlled so near hinges to break!

I had an issue with the OS and Dell walked me through a system restore that was stored on the HDD

Cons: A little on the heavy side for its size.

Could run faster.

Preloaded Dell software is a pain.

Other Thoughts: Recommend to those who would like a second laptop/tablet

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome little computer!

Pros: Great as a low end laptop and as a tablet. I love the portability of this device. Touch is responsive. Plays video flawlessly.

Cons: A little bit heavy for being portable. When you convert it to a tablet, the webcam doesn't flip, so you can only use the webcam when this device acts as a netbook. A tad pricey

Other Thoughts: Despite the cons, well worth the money.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's okay for a netbook

Pros: - It's a netbook/tablet! It's great to have a tablet that isn't just a large smart phone that isn't a phone.
- It's small
- It looked cool
- The screen transition from netbook to tablet was easy and seemed pretty sturdy.
- Keyboard was easy to use and get used to. I really like Dell's new function keys and how they tied those into the work-ability of the netbook.

Cons: - Every program runs slow.
- It didn't have the ability to play any of the games I loaded on it.
- Lots of non-useful pre-loaded Dell programs.
- It's a little heavy to use a as a tablet - my arm got tired just holding it up while it's resting on my lap.
- It's a netbook, so it's system hardware isn't upgradable.
- About all it's good for is word processing, sending emails (when you have wireless internet availability), and spreadsheet ability. It'd also be good for a student doing simple tasks. Any programs that require more memory or graphics beyond that run very slowly on this machine, if at all.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap-ish laptop or netbook for my to use for business/personal use when I travel. I initially was going to get a laptop, but I really like the idea of netbooks, so I got the Dell Inspiron Duo. The Duo looks cool, but it just doesn't have the "umph" to make it actually useful. It couldn't run most of the programs I needed for work, and it wouldn't play any games I loaded on it for personal use (even games 10+ years old). I did like how it could easily it transformed from netbook to tablet. It was sometimes hard to click the "x" to close windows while in tablet mode, though. Some of the touchscreen attributes feel off.

I returned it after a few weeks with it. Its inability to perform work tasks and its inability to play any of the games I loaded on it made it useless to me-it was more of just a neat toy. I didn't feel like being out $550 or so for a neat toy that wasn't all that useful (or upgradable), so I returned it and will buy a small, lower-end laptop inste
