How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Summary

The XPS 10 has a lot going for it, including a reasonable price, very good battery life, and a good keyboard dock. PC Mag calls it "one of the better RT tablets we've seen so far" and calls its 20-hour battery life "insanely long." PC World likes the XPS 10's "innovative design" which includes batteries in both the dock and display (hence that 20-hour battery life). However, as with other tablets powered by Windows RT, our advice is still to wait and see if the operating system garners enough developer support to give it a viable future. For now, if you want a solid, affordable Windows tablet/keyboard combo, your best bet is the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2, which costs more than the XPS 10, but runs the full version of Windows 8, rather than RT.
