Dell Latitude XT2 Tablet


Dell's tablet isn't cheap, but it'll appeal to the business crowd who desire a solidly built system.

Solid and robust in tablet and notebook form, Business styled, Good performance

Bad basic battery life, No in-built optical drive, Expensive

Review Update: Dell Latitude XT2 with Windows 7


The Latitude XT2 is Dell's multitouch-enabled business convertible-notebook that now includes Windows 7. The XT2 starts at $1,909 and offers a very thin and lightweight business-rugged chassis with an attractive brushed-metal finish. In this review we...

Good looking and thin design ; Great build quality ; Improved battery life under Windows 7

Slow 1.8" 5400RPM hard drive ; High pricetag

The touchpad is an ALPS model running proprietary Dell software. Compared to the average Snypatics model it does show some minor lag, but it still feels responsive and easy to use. I think Dell could have gone with a larger touchpad surface, since the...

Dell Latitude XT2 Review


We like the XT2's smooth multitouch display, durable design, and speedy solid state drive. Overall, we prefer the Lenovo ThinkPad X200 Tablet with multitouch, because it offers faster performance and longer endurance for about $300 less. But if you're...

Fast solid state drive, Strong performance, Responsive multitouch display, Three-year warranty with on-site service

Relatively short battery life, No webcam option, Tiny touchpad and buttons, Expensive

Dell Dell Latitude XT2


Go on, grab the Dell Latitude XT2--it just feels good. The rugged metal-alloy casing gives it a solid, substantial frame. Pick it up, and the 13.3-inch machine is deceptively light (3.8 pounds). Put all of that together, and you seem to have a premium...

Solid construction, yet lightweight ; Great multi-touch screen

Could benefit from a better battery life

Dell's XT2 is a top-end tablet for those that want the premium look and feel -- but lacks a little in muscles.

Dell Latitude XT2 Review


I personally love the side profile of the Latitude XT2, which is almost perfectly square at all corners. It has no sloped surfaces, no rounded sides, and sits very low to the desk surface. If you are carrying the tablet around in one arm it takes up...

Excellent build quality ; Thin chassis and business-grade color scheme ; Very easy to upgrade and service

Slow hard drive ; High price ; Largest internal battery is only 42Wh

Dell Latitude XT2


The Dell Latitude XT2 costs more than a traditional 12.1-inch ultraportable, but for those who need a tablet PC and have wished for a no-compromises screen, it's worth every penny.

Best tablet screen we've seen; touch screen supports stylus or finger input (with gestures); solid-state-drive option available

Pricey; bland styling; mediocre battery life; optical drive is not built in

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

Overall, the superslick Dell Latitude XT2 will make you the envy of the boardroom. It offers most of the bells and whistles you might need, and it runs briskly enough for you to get your work in order. This machine offers more than enough to...
