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

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.

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

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

Product Specifications

FREE UPGRADE TO 1.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU9600 processor! Tap into the future with the exciting new Dell Latitude XT2. It's the industry's first tablet PC with multi-touch screen technology. Dell delivers a touch of genius with the Latitude XT2. It provides an outstanding tablet experience. Type, touch or tap this high-performance system gives you intuitive and flexible input capabilities. It includes a highly advanced capacitive multi-touch screen and pen that work any way you want to. Use natural gestures like a pinch or tap for scrolling, panning, rotating, zooming and more. With just a stroke of your fingertips, you can scroll through large web pages, zoom in on graphics, photos or online maps; enlarge email to aid reading, close your screen, collaborate in real-time and much more. The Latitude XT2 is the small and lightweight tablet PC with big, heavy-duty features. At just an inch thin with an ultra small power supply, the XT2 can comfortably go almost anywhere. The upgraded 6-cell battery we provide lets you work for hours at a stretch thanks to Dell ControlPoint power management software that conserves battery power. You can work comfortably in either notebook PC mode or convert to tablet mode. In tablet mode, you can use the multi-touch screen for exceptional efficiency and fingertip ease or utilize the battery-free pen to write or draw as you would on a piece of paper. In laptop mode, you still have the luxury of touch, but with the comfort of a full-sized keyboard with dual-pointing track stick and buttons. You can stay connected almost anywhere with the XT2's WiFi and 802.11 A/G/N wireless networking capabilities.
