4 / 5 stars (5 reviews) - The Perfect 2-in-1 (Almost)
Latest review: August 11, 2018 | Model: Dell Latitude 7285
The tablet portion of the Lattitude 7285 is perfect. Well, almost. Thanks to its magnesium housing, the tablet (at 1.51 lbs), is ever-so-slightly lighter than the Surface Book 2 "clipboard" (1.59 lbs) and Surface Pro (1.73 lbs), and about the same weight as the iPad Pro (12.9"). Yes, the Book 2 clipboard feels lighter because of the bigger footprint/screen, but the battery is much smaller as well (18Wh vs 34). And the Surface Pro has a built in kickstand, so that has to be factored into the difference as well. Honestly, if you need something to use PRIMARILY as a tablet, you should pick up the Surface Pro. Despite its reputation of questionable build quality, I think you'd have better luck troubleshooting it and getting support from Microsoft as you can just drop by the store or ask one of the very many users out there how to solve your problem.The Latitude's user base is non existent. If you buy the tablet straight from Dell I believe you can get on-site support (meaning they will literally drive to you and fix it on the spot), but I don't think it's worth paying close to MSRP (more on this later)... if you're in the market for a device to use primarily as a tablet or primarily as a laptop, there are better options out there (HP x360, Dell XPS, Huawei Matebook X Pro, Samsung Notebook 9 Pro, Surface Pro, Surface Book 1 or 2). But if you're looking for a 2-in-1 that performs equally well in tablet AND laptop mode for $1,000 or less, this isn't just your best option. In my opinion, it's your ONLY option.Reviewed by: Wilfredo R. Guzon | Read Dell Latitude 7285 reviews...
87% - The sales price may scare many at first, but Dell offers a very well-built device with a first-class 3K screen and a selection of modern connections. Besides the tablet and keyboard dock, the package also includes the Dell Active Pen and a 36-month warranty.

With the Dell Latitude 7285, the manufacturer presents us with very high-quality convertible with modern components. The Intel Core i5-7Y57 offers a solid performance and is up to the job of everyday office tasks. The CPU can also handle multimedia applications. Often the frugal SoC can keep up well with the faster ULV processors. At 2,300 Euros (~$2740) for a device with the equipment of our test unit, what the end user has to pay for it is substantial. However, the customers receive a flawlessly built device, which gives a very high-quality impression in every regard... In the power consumption, the device disappointed us a bit, because we would have expected much better values from the frugal components. This resulted also in the mixed battery life results. The idea to place an additional battery in the keyboard dock is good and prevents a worse placement in our test comparison.Reviewed by: Sebastian Bade | Read full review...
3 / 5 stars - Gorgeous 4k screen Review date: March 18, 2016 | Model: Dell Latitude 12 7275
The Latitude's advantage over rival Windows 10 2-in-1 devices is its 4K display, which is truly magnificent for getting productive or enjoying your media on the move. However, you'll certianly need to pay up for those quality visuals, with a price that comes dangerously close to the excellent Surface Book (which offers a more travel-friendly experience overall). Battery life and performance can't compete with Microsoft's devices, but the Latitude 12 7000 Series can still run office suites and even relatively modern games without a struggle. We're also big fans of the cover keyboard, which provides a comfortable typing experience. It's just a shame the Latitude wasn't cheaper, to offer a more tempting alternative to the Surface family.Reviewed by: Chris Barraclough | Read full review...
