Review Dell XPS 10 Tablet


Marathon Tablet. After Asus, Microsoft and Samsung, the spotlight

Precise touchscreen; High-quality workmanship; Nice performance; Intuitive interface; Good battery life; Low temperature emissions

Display only offers HD-ready resolution; Current price; Full-sized USB port in the dock or with adapter; Performance has room for improvement

The precision of the touchscreen which enables fluid input.

Dell XPS 10 Review


With the introduction of Windows 8, it seems almost every computer manufacturer is making its own laptop-tablet hybrid, which, in most cases, is just a tablet with a snap-on keyboard. Asus was the first to create Android tablets with dedicated keyboard...

Covered in soft-touch paint for fingerprint-free handling ; Included dongles for full-sized USB and HDMI ports ; Good battery life ; Touchscreen and keyboard make Windows RT usable ; Keyboard dock doubles battery life and adds expansion ports

Heavy for a mobile device ; Shallow and small keys ; Awkward location of micro USB port ; Expensive ; Average screen resolution

It's a shame that a perfectly decent device is bogged down by the still-glitchy Windows RT.

The Dell XPS 10 Windows RT-equipped convertible tablet will truly last all day and most of the night (and certainly cover the longest flight in the world). It has a very small-capacity C: drive, but if your digital life is truly in the cloud, the XPS...

Very portable. Over 20 hours of battery life with dock. Can trickle charge with micro-USB. Comfortable keyboard dock. Speakers built into dock

Limited Windows RT app library. Can't install older Windows apps. Can't install third-party browser. Local storage a bit small

If you think you need to carry all of your digital files (especially videos and multimedia) with you at all times, stop reading this and go read a review for a more power user-oriented system. Still here? Okay, the Dell XPS 10 ($679.99 bundled with...

Dell XPS 10 (Windows RT)


If you're reading this review of the Dell XPS 10, you either have already considered or will in the very near future consider the Microsoft Surface RT first. It's simply an overall better tablet value, thanks to its slightly wider screen, better build...

The Dell XPS 10 includes expandable storage and a depressible Windows button, and its $180 keyboard features plenty of useful ports as well as an extra battery.

There are a few annoying performance bugs. The base tablet doesn’t have as many ports as the Surface RT. It lacks a kickstand and its keyboard isn’t as comfortable to type on.

The Dell XPS 10 is a valiant effort at a Windows RT tablet but doesn’t pack enough value into its base package to favorably compete with the Surface RT.

Maxell’s Encore EN-5 offer a rich, full sound for an affordable price, beating out nearly all of the headphones in the test. However, our testers didn’t think they were very comfortable, nor did this pair do a good job staying put during use....

"Both the XPS 10 & Win8 RT have exceeded expectations"


Having used for a week now I understand where Microsoft have gone with

Light and nice to hold.It has 2 good camera's. Very reliable so far.Can stream music directly from my Zune account over WiFi, through bluetooth to my stereo receiver.Battery lasting 3 days of moderate usage before it needs charging.Very happy so far.

Current lack of accessories such as a docking station (other than keyboard dock) or a cover.Hoping these will come.

Great little tablet


With friends and coworkers who have the Surface, I find the XPS10 to be superior. That's why I ordered it instead of the Surface. (Now, I said "Surface" not "Surface Pro". The Surface Pro is in an entirely different category, and price range. This...

Fast (noticeably faster than the MS Surface), nice screen, clean design, SD card expansion. It's great for just about everything I use on a tablet, and many things I only thought I'd do with a PC

Storage is a bit low, but that's to be expected on a tablet. Can't store more than a few movies on it. I bring along three 32GB SD cards to hold all my 720p movies when I travel

Windows RT-toting mini tablet with keyboard dock

Great battery ; Top price

Heavy ; Cramped ; Lacking in power

The Dell XPS 10 is one of the finest Windows RT devices we've seen, and comes at an attractive price.
