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

With a 1080p display and comparable performance, the Venue 11 Pro stands out among other Atom-powered Windows tablets. While CNET says the display is "excellent," its 10.8" size also results in a heavier tablet, with Laptop Magazine calling it "a bit on the bulky side." With an Atom processor inside you won't be running any high-resource tasks, but IT Pro Portal says "there’s enough power here to cope with Office, some light photo editing and other mainstream tasks." That lower processing power does have one signficiant benefit, though -- Expert Reviews says the battery life is "impressive." In the 10-inch Windows tablet space the Dell Venue 11 Pro has enough going for it to be a viable option, but the ThinkPad Tablet 2 is still the better slate.
