Dell Venue 10 7000 Is A Business Tablet With Atom Processing

With the launch of Dell Venue 10 7000, the company has made an expansion of its range of business tablets. Designed much like a black slate, the tablet has created great hype of late and it is scheduled to be in the US, Canada and China soon. Yet, there is no update regarding its availability in the rest of the world.

Dell Venue 10 7000 Business Tablet Like the other 7000 series devices of Dell, this tablet will also feature cutting-edge design features and the latest technologies. A 10.5-inch tablet, this one makes heads turn for its impressive look and extremely sleek design. Supporting a 2560 x 1600 LED display, it has a classic look.

The device also features Intel quad-core 2.3 GHz Atom Z3580 processor, making it a worthy choice for everyday work. High-end graphic support makes the device a good choice for the gamers as well.

For a better performance, users can either rely on the magnetized keyboard or can opt for the Bluetooth Dell Venue keyboard. The company also claims to offer five mode support, viz. tent, stand, tablet or laptop to make it the most handy tablet in the market. The device is equally comfortable to use in all modes.

Reported to be around $599 with the keyboard and $499 without the accessories, this tablet is worth the price. The company also has plans to introduce several other accessories for this tablet, all of which are expected to be equally attractive.… Read the rest

Is The HP Stream 11-D023tu: Worth A Buy Or Does It Miss The Mark?

At a time when you have phablets, tablets, smartphones and mini-laptops, it is tough for an entry level laptop to make a big mark. So when a maker like HP decides to push the boundary with the HP Stream 11-D023tu, one is made to sit up and take notice.

In terms of physical looks, we so love this piece. While the color—a bright shade of blue—could be distracting for many, it has a funky feel to it.

The challenge with this laptop is that there are so many entry level laptops flooding the market that we need to actually weigh its pros against the plausible cons. Only then can we know if it scores a hit or a miss.

HP Stream 11For starters, we barely found any impressive hardware on the Stream 11. However, this is well made up for by the presence of the integrated 3G modem. Basically, this allows for smoother internet connectivity sans the worry of hotspot or dongles.

There are three ports and the usual HDMI output. However, all of these are on one side. The basic flaw we noticed here is the absence of any vent or fan. In fact, the speakers fire downwards being located on the lower lip curve of the device.

Moving in to greater details—there is no touch input support but then, the 11.6-incher screen is of poor quality and comes with 1366 x 768 resolution. The laptop is powered by Intel Celeron N2840 CPU.  Other specs around his niche are-

  • 2.16 GHz dual core processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 32 GB  memory
  • Flash support of only upto 32 GB
  • Windows 8.1, 34-Bit

While the full size keyboard is a good spec, we are let down with the pre-installed apps such as Connected Music, Trip Advisor and MySMS among others. The battery is beefy and offers 5 hours of activity post a single round of charging. However, this is just about it. For us, the HP Stream 11-D023tu misses the mark—big time!… Read the rest
