The Venue 11 Pro was conceived as a tablet for use in the business environment. Dell outfitted the device with a Full HD IPS display và made it easy lớn access the tablet"s inner workings. A quick SSD & a bộ vi xử lý core i5 processor vị the device credit on paper too. But all told, can the tablet win us over?

For the original German review, see here.

We"re already familiar with the Dell Venue 11 Pro: In January 2014, we reviewed amodel from this line. That version ran on a
Core i3 processor; our current chạy thử device boasts of a vi xử lý core i5. The new processor looks better on paper, but does the tablet really gain anything? Is it worth it to lớn pay the higher price compared to lớn the bộ vi xử lý core i3 model? Our review reveals the answers.

The Venue 11 Pro"s competition consists of business tablets manufactured by other companies, for instance the
Lenovo Think
Pad 10and the
Microsoft Surface Pro 3.

Since the two Venue 11 Pro models are structurally identical, we won"t cover the case, connectivity, display or speakers in detail. See our review of the core i3 version of the Venue 11 Profor more information on these subjects.

The Venue 11 Pro is equipped with the same display as itssister model. This is a bright, high-contrast IPS display withstable viewing angles. The measurements we recorded were a little different for the two panels, but this is normal. Two structurally identical displays never register 100% identical results.

The Dell Venue 11 Pro is primarily designed for business people. The processor"s performance is more than sufficient for everyday office tasks. Dell offers this tablet in a variety of configurations, including versions with 3G modems. Our demo device costs around 1,000 Euros (~$1222). Dell is also producing less expensive models with Atom processors, starting at around 380 Euros (~$464).

The tablet runs on a
Core i5-4300Ydual-core processor (Haswell). The “Y” at the end indicates that this is a very energy-efficient CPU. At 11.5 Watts, the TDP is even lower than that of a “normal” ULV processor (15 Watts). The CPU"s base clock rate is 1.6 GHz; using turbo, the speed can be increased khổng lồ up lớn 2.3 GHz. However, the processor almost never utilizes its full performance capacity. The CPU completed the Cinebench benchmark"s single-thread tests at 1.4 lớn 2.3 GHz, while the tốc độ generally hovered around 2 GHz. The processor performed the multi-thread tests at 1.3 khổng lồ 1.4 GHz. The CPU"s behavior was identical in both AC power mode và battery mode.

The processor"s results in our various benchmarks were disappointing. Because the core i5 didn"t use its turbo in the multi-thread tests and even ran below its base clock speed, the processor"s results are lower than those of its sister model"s (outfitted with a
Core i3-4020Y). Our demo device"s single-thread performance, however, proved to be superior to that of the vi xử lý core i3-4020Y Venue. The processor can use its turbo for single-thread applications.

Our Verdict

This Windows tablet delivers laptop-like performance, enterprise-level security, & multiple docking options.

What happens when you put an Intel vi xử lý core i5-4300Y in an 11-inch tablet lượt thích the Dell Venue 11 Pro? It gets really, really fast. Indeed, having used the previously-reviewed Atom-based version of the Venue 11 Pro, I can attest lớn a rather significant jump in performance.

The “Pro” suffix indicates that this tablet runs Windows (Dell’s Venue tablets are android devices), & the “7139 Security” tag adds a whole các mục of features not found in the more consumer-oriented Venue Pro. These include hãng intel v
Pro & TPM (Trusted Platform Module) support (for hardwired security và remote management), & a fingerprint scanner & smart thẻ reader to keep the bad guys out.

The optional keyboard dock turns the Venue 11 Pro into a small Ultrabook.

In its basic form, the Venue 11 Pro is a widescreen Windows 8 tablet with some clever docking options: A small keyboard, a super-thin keyboard, & a port-laden pedestal that can transform it into a high-powered Ultrabook or an under-screened, all-in-one desktop. I say under-screened, because as large as the 10.8-inch, 1920×1080 display seems when it’s in your hand, it’s rather tiny when you have a full-sized keyboard và mouse in front of it.

The Venue 11 Pro was only doable in AIO configuration for weak-eyed me with the keyboard tucked in a tray underneath my desk. Dell’s Tablet Dock does support dual display configurations, however, và it’s equipped with both HDMI (max resolution of 1920×108) và Display
Port (max resolution of 2560×1600).

This optional dock ($140) can transform the Venue 11 Pro into a small all-in-one. Dell’s model 7130 và 7139 can drive a second display via HDMI or Display

The 7139 (Security) mã sản phẩm is a higher-end configuration priced at $1081. In addition to lớn the aforementioned quad-core CPU và security features, it also comes with 4GB of DDR3/1600 memory and a San
Disk 128GB m.2 SSD. The tablet measures 0.6 inches thick and weighs in at 1.85 pounds sans keyboard. As tablets go, this one feels a bit thick, but I didn’t find it overly heavy. Then again, I tend khổng lồ prop a tablet on my chest while lying down, or rest my elbows on the counter while I hold the tablet. Folks who hold the tablet without extra tư vấn might disagree.

If the fingerprint scanner doesn’t provide enough security for your needs, you can use a smart card with this Venue 11 Pro.

Lay of the land

The Venue 11 Pro 7139 features an 8MP rear-facing camera and a 2MP front-facing webcam. The right side is home to the power button, reset pinhole, micro
SD card slot (with a pinhole release), a micro-USB 2.0 port for charging the unit, & a mini-HDMI port. The lower edge of the tablet has only the docking port and auxiliary battery connection points. On the left are a full-sized USB 3.0 port, the volume control rocker, và the headset jack. The vị trí cao nhất is occupied solely by circulation vents—a core i5 needs to lớn breathe.

Dell’s best tablet is on the chunky side (shown here attached lớn the thicker of its two optional keyboards).

The bottom of the Venue 11 is largely given over lớn a pressure-fit plastic panel that pops off khổng lồ reveal the 36-watt-hour battery. It also facilitates access lớn other components, though the only thing you can get lớn without further disassembly is the micro-SIM thẻ for optional cellular broadband. The Venue 11 Pro 7139 also supports 802.11ac Wi-Fi (via an hãng sản xuất intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260 adapter), công nghệ bluetooth 4.0, and Wi
Di/Miracast (for wireless video streaming khổng lồ displays that tư vấn that standard).

Worried about battery life? This is one of the few tablets that lets you swap a dead one out for a fresh one.

Our test unit came with the 1.5-pound mobile Keyboard ($160), which also houses a supplementary 28-watt-hour battery. The significantly lighter (0.72-pound), Surface-style Slim keyboard is also available for $110, but it does not include a second battery.

The mobile Keyboard types nicely for its size, and the keys have good bit of travel. The one-piece touchpad, however, proved idiosyncratic at registering clicks when pressed in the corners, versus the center of the click area. Swiping, cursor movement, và tapping, on the other hand, registered without a problem. Dell also shipped its $27 Active Stylus, which provides Wacom-like abilities lớn the unit.

This is one fast tablet

The Venue 11 Pro mã sản phẩm 7139 scored a very un-tablet-like máy tính xách tay World
Bench 9 score of 52—a full 23 points higher than the Atom Z3770-based Venue 11 Pro we tested earlier this year. It felt super-lively in my hands-on và played even high bit-rate 1080p movies like butter. In spite of its faster CPU, the model 7139 managed khổng lồ run for 4 hours và 48 minutes by its lonesome, & 7 hours, 46 minutes with the sản phẩm điện thoại Keyboard keyboard/auxiliary battery attached.


The Venue 11 Pro 7139 (Security) is the fastest Windows tablet we’ve tested.

Sadly, the bộ vi xử lý core i5-4300Y’s integrated graphics (Intel HD Graphics 4200) don’t game. The tablet struggled to lớn reach 15 frames per second with Bio
Shock Infinite
, even with the resolution dialed down to lớn 1024×768 & image unique at low. Sound, on the other hand, was surprisingly good. Apparently the air spaces required khổng lồ keep the i5 cool helps with bass response. The Venue 11 Pro sounds beefier than many full laptops I’ve reviewed. Yes, the games you can’t play will sound great!


Dell’s secure tablet delivered an excellent performance with our productivity tiện ích benchmark, too.

If you’re into the Venue 11 Pro’s size factor, versatility, and accessories, but don’t care as much about—or can’t afford—this model’s performance & security features, a host of less-expensive configurations are also available. Dell’s website is confusing khổng lồ navigate, but you should be able lớn find a model that fits your budget if you dig around. The Venue 11 Pro is warrantied for a single year by default, but you can purchase up lớn three years—including onsite service—for $216.


If you need a business tablet that can work all day & into the night, Dell’s Venue 11 Pro 7139 (Security) with its keyboard dock is the one khổng lồ buy.

Expensive, but worth it

The Venue 11 Pro 7139 (Security) is a versatile business tablet/laptop/mini all-in-one that’s surprisingly usable in all three orientations—provided you can live with the heft and smallish display (as a desktop without a second monitor, that is). This high-end mã sản phẩm proved particularly adept at movies and presentations, but it’s a highly capable, very secure Windows 8 tablet in nearly all aspects.

The package reviewed here, which includes several options including the stylus & keyboard dock with supplemental battery, costs $1081. That’s a lot of green, but its performance justifies its price tag.
