Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130 Tablet Review Update

78% Dell Venue 11 Pro 7130 Tablet Review Update

Stuck in a rut. The Venue 11 Pro was conceived as a tablet for use in the business environment. Dell outfitted the device with a Full HD IPS display and made it easy to access the tablet's inner workings. A quick SSD and a Core i5 processor do the device credit on paper too. But all told, can the tablet win us over?
