Dell Venue 11 Pro Alternatives
|Acer Aspire Switch 10, 10.1", 585gm|
The Acer Aspire Switch 10 offers 2-in-1 tablet/laptop Windows 8.1 at a very low price. The product competes with the ASUS Transformer Book T100 well and offers multiple 'modes' via the flexible magnetic hinge. Screen resolution is a relatively basic 1366x768 and there's no additional battery in the keyboard but as a consumer-focused dual-mode PC/Tablet the Aspire Switch 10 will offer good value in creation and consumption activities.
|ASUS T100, 10.0", 544gm|
One of the first 2-in-1's on Baytrail architecture. It's a lightweight product with a very usable tablet section. With the price at $345 (32GB at launch. $399 for 64GB storage) it could be a very attractive and highly dynamic tablet/PC combo.
|Acer Iconia W510 , 10.1", 576gm|
The Acer Iconia W510 is a Transformer-style hybrid. It features a 10.1″ screen, 8.9mm thickness, 576 grams (w/o keyboard) and 32GB or 64GB of storage. The tablet has a SIM slot, microSD, micro-USB, and HDMI (unspecified connector type), as well as volume buttons, a microphone, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Keyboard dock is optional and doubles as an extra battery providing up to 18 hours of batter life.
|Lenovo Miix 2 10, 10.1", 589gm|
The Lenovo Miix 2 10 looks to be the perfect travellers mobile laptop. Lightweight with good battery life (8hrs quoted) and all in a nice-looking and flexible multimode package. $499 launch price won't include 3G/4G but at least there's an option.
|Fujitsu Stylistic Q584, 10.1", 640gm|
Clearly aimed at business markets but offering some ofthe best specifications we've seen on the first wave of Baytrail tablets. 4G, 640gm, IGZO 2650x1600 screen, Digitizer and a built-in 38Wh battery are all high-end.
|Lenovo Thinkpad Helix, 11.6", 785gm|
The Lenovo Thinkpad Helix offers an advanced tablet/laptop configuration with battery capacity up to an impressive 70Wh with the clamshell dock. The weight, however, is high at 1.7KG, much more than other 11.6" ultrabooks that go down to 1KG. SSD options, CPU options (including VPro support) and memory up to 8GB give the business user and consumer a wide choice of configurations. We think the Lenovo Helix is going to be very popular here on Ultrabooknews but pricing will be high. Starting price: around $1500.
|Acer Iconia Tab W700, 11.6", 950gm|
The Acer Iconia Tab W700 is an 11.6-inch Full HD, multitouch touchscreen tablet which has an interesting cradle packed with it which makes tilts up to 70 degrees in landscape mode for better viewing angles. It also packs a Thunderbolt and microHDMI port for good connectivity options.
