Pros:

As per previous review - lightweight, speedy, upgradable, etc.

Cons:

See other thoughts:
- Buggy BIOS (some settings are available that shouldn't be)
- Incorrect image loaded at factory
- Tablet suffers from intermittent 3 to 5 second freezes/pauses during use

Other Thoughts:

The Venue 11 Pro isn't quite ready for prime time, especially in a business environment - according to the Dell user forums, they're BIOS and firmware teams are working on the issues, but so far no fixes have been issued.

Currently, the Venue 11 Pro has a buggy BIOS - on the model for sale here on Newegg, there are options in the BIOS (for example, Intel Rapid Start and Intel Smart Connect) that should not be visible as they're only available on the i5-4300y vPro processor. Also, by default the TPM (Trusted Platform Module) is not accessible at boot and has the potential to brick the tablet - this is a BIOS defect and Dell has a knowledge base article detailing the issue (article ID 635018). Beyond the above mentioned problems, these tablets ship from the factory with an incorrect drive image (for example, the Intel Rapid Start software is installed and there is an 8GB partition on the SSD dedicated to the feature even though it does not work on this particular model).

Once Dell works out the kinks, I believe this tablet will be up to snuff, but until then it's probably best to play it safe and wait - especially if you intend to deploy this in a business environment.
