Great Tablet (after updates)
This review is from: DELL Venue 11 Pro 462-3453 Intel Core i5 4 GB Memory 128 GB 10.8" Touchscreen Tablet Windows 8.1 64-Bit
Pros: Very fast processor and responsive ssd and makes a great laptop/desktop replacement when docked. Boots fast (10-20 seconds). Great viewing angles on screen. Video processor handles Big Buck Bunny in 4K at 60fps like it's nothing. Intel GPU supports Intel QSV & WIDI technology.
Cons: Had several issues with touch screen prior to updates so you must do Dell & Windows updates out of the box. Glossy screen can be distracting with reflections as all glossy screens are. Ambient light sensor seemed to always set the screen brightness too low so I turned it off to help offset screen glare in office setting which probably is affecting battery life. Cooling is active and will fire up under load with some fan noise. Although it does minimize this when un-docked. Official Dell dock for this item has a very loose power cord but left alone on a desk it stays in.
Other Thoughts: I fortunately was able to play with this tablet through my work so I didn't have to fork over the money. I think if Dell could find a way going forward to push in 8-16gb of RAM, lower the price, make a matte finish screen, fix the ambient light sensor or let you adjust it's sensitivity, and fix the power cord from poping out (magnetic release would be nice) I would be sold in a heartbeat.
