Dell brings Broadwell to its Venue 11 Pro 7000 series tablet

Dell has announced a new version of its powerful Venue 11 Pro 7000 Series tablet that houses the new Intel Broadwell processor. Being a more expensive line, the 7000 Series was sold until now with Intel Haswell Y processors but starting November 11, 2014 the line will come with Intel Core-M chips with the low-power Broadwell architecture, which means a fan will not be needed.

We’ll list the specs really quickly here as we are sure you are interested in them – at first the 7000 Series will come with the Intel Core-M 5Y10a dual-core processor at 0.8-2.0 GHz but a bit later the faster Core-M 5Y70 dual-core chip (1.1-2.6 GHz) will be offered. Both processors support Hyper-Threading technology so four threads will be in the chips’ pipelines at once. The tablet also makes use of Intel HD 5300 graphics and has 4-8 GB DDR3L memory at 1600 MHz, Intel Wireless-AC 7265 (802.11ac) technology, 64-128 GB of internal storage, a 38 Whr battery and a 10.8-inch 1920 x 1080 HD IPS LCD display. The device measures 176.4 x 279.8 x 10.75 mm and weighs 733.4 grams (Wi-Fi) or 757.3 grams (LTE). Expect to pay at least USD 699 for it. The tablet also has a full-sized USB 3.0 port, Bluetooth 4.0, micro HDMI, NFC, a sensor hub (gyro, G-sensor, proximity) and a microSD card slot that can work with cards with capacities of up to 128 GB.

As you can see the 7000 Series is one serious device and as such aims at the business crowd. There are additional options too that include optional docking stations, keyboards, stylus, and two-level authentication with integrated smartcard and fingerprint readers. The inclusion of Broadwell chips adds some to the end price but the latest technology has a price.

Apart from this we can’t really complain as the new 7000 Series tablet seems a solid device that will be able to handle any software you throw at it. The device is 15 per cent thinner than the outgoing version, which is one of the benefits from moving to the Core-M processor – and let’s not forget the 4.5W TDP. In addition it is ready to offer various customization options and external hardware to meet customers’ demands, making it a truly versatile business-oriented device.

Like we said the new Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 Series will be available on November 11 for USD 699 and up. You can order it online on Dell’s web site.
