Looking for a powerful, business-ready Windows tablet without the hefty price tag?
Starting at $499.99, the Dell Venue 11 Pro is a budget-friendly, full-featured business tablet packed with everything you need to power through the workday on a single device. Here are the top three features of the Venue 11 Pro that give business users a bang for their buck.
With the Dell Venue 11 Pro, business users get a tablet, laptop and desktop computer, all in one device.
Out of the box, the Venue 11 Pro is a Windows 8.1-powered device that gives users the portability of a tablet and the power of an Ultrabook. As such, this tablet can run any Windows-compatible software, just as a full-featured laptop or PC can. It also includes one full-size USB 3.0 port, one micro HDMI port and a headphone/microphone combo jack.
Tired of the tablet form? Snap on one of Dell's tablet keyboards, and you've got the flexibility of a laptop. When you really need to get down to business, Dell's optional tablet dock — complete with extra USB ports, an HDMI port, a mini DisplayPort and audio input/output to connect keyboards, mice, external monitors and other devices — delivers a true desktop experience.
For those who prefer to "write" on their tablets, Dell's add-on Active Stylus lets users easily take notes, highlight text, sketch designs, visualize ideas and more.
2. Connectivity and collaboration
The Venue 11 Pro makes it easy to connect and collaborate with your team and business partners.
Need to meet remotely? The Venue 11 Pro has an 8-MP rear camera and a 2-MP front camera, SRS premium audio and noise-canceling microphones for superb videoconferencing.
The Venue 11 Pro also delivers several wireless connectivity features, such as the ability to wirelessly stream content from the device to an HDMI-enabled external display. It is also built with near field communication (NFC) capabilities, allowing users to pair computers, headphones, speakers and other NFC-enabled devices with just a tap.
3. All-day productivity
The Venue 11 Pro is all about all-day power and performance.
It has an 8- to 10-hour battery life, meaning business users can get through an entire day's worth of work on a single charge.
Depending on your device, the Venue 11 Pro also features the powerful quad-core Intel Atom processor or Intel Core i5 processor, both of which work efficiently to boost performance and extend battery life.
If you're using the device as a laptop, the optional mobility keyboard also includes a built-in rechargeable battery that extends the Venue 11 Pro's life by 50 percent.
