Notebookcheck's Best of April 2013 - Notebooks and Convertibles

 

Better displays. More and more test devices attract attention with decent contrast, high brightness and the wide viewing angles of an IPS solution. However, the winners do more than show what a notebook display is expected to deliver. ... read...

Better accessibility of its innards, e.g. the ability to swap the HDD or the battery (or simply to clean the fans)

Review Dell Latitude XT3 Convertible

 

An intermediate step. Dell's Latitude XT3 is a convertible PC in

Case; Display; Very precise N-trig digitizer; Port distribution; System performance; Keyboard; Expansion options; 36 months of pro support

Pen takes some getting used to; Weight; Viewing angles slightly less stable compared to the rest of its class; Performance components still from the Sandy Bridge generation

The Fujitsu LifeBook T902 has thus far proven to be the most convincing competitor in our tests. But depending on personal needs and individual priorities, the Lenovo ThinkPad X230T and the HP EliteBook 2760p can also be fitting alternatives. Further...

Dell Latitude XT3 Review: This Convertible PC Is All Business

 

The very sturdy Dell Latitude XT3 is an enterprise-class laptop that comes with a twist: You can quickly fold it into a tablet PC by rotating its screen on its single central hinge. Such so-called convertible PCs often land in large organizations,...

Awesome battery life ; Big screen for a convertible PC

Pricey ; Weighs a lot

Dell's Latitude XT3 isn't for the average consumer--it's pricey, heavy, and a poor choice for games. But with otherwise solid performance, a large touchscreen, and great battery life, it gets the job done.

Dell Latitude XT

 

Dell's first tablet offers an excellent capacitive touchscreen, but its short battery life makes it a better choice for office workers than road warriors.

The Dell Latitude XT’s unique capacitive touchscreen puts it at the head of the class in terms of tablet functionality. But is it worth the three-grand premium? Yes, but only if you pick up the nine-cell battery and you don't mind the extra bulk it adds.

Not only does the XT have a touchpad, but it comes with a track-point as well. Now, you can choose what you like better. The LED backlit screen is bright and converting this notebook into a tablet just takes a few seconds. The screen automatically...

Dual touch technology, capacitive touch ; LED backlit display ; Solid keyboard ; Solid pen with pressure sensitive nibs ; Great battery life with slice battery ; Tons of accessory options

Dull design, but business like ; Expensive ; Eraser on pen is a button, feels awkward ; Latch doesn't lock lid

The XT comes with a nice array of ports and has plenty of optional accessories. The slice battery gives it all day power and the MediaBase gives you an optical drive and more ports then I could ever use. It seems Dell is already talking about updating...

Dell Latitude XT Tablet PC User Review

 

However, Dell's new foray is not critique-free from the general publics concerns. Their lack of experience in such market space, and the extremely high price tag seem to spawn comments from all over the globe. In the end, is the Latitude XT a worthy...

As a matter of fact, most of the tasks I tried to use the tablet for (including placing orders and checking inventories in the warehouse) ended up being slower. Perhaps I just need to gain some more experience, but at this point I am leaning towards...

Dell Latitude XT3

 

Convertible PCs used to be fairly popular when Windows XP Tablet Edition was released but they've since mostly faded away. The Dell Latitude XT3 hopes to revive this category with its own convertible PC. It has great battery life, an Intel Core i5 CPU...
