When the original Dell Venue 11 Pro came out, it was very popular because of it’s extremely long batter life. It was sturdy, and it had a really impressive HD screen. It was pretty pricey though, and it was a little bit thick and bulky.
Dell just announced the Venue Pro 11 7000 today, and the idea is that it will offer better portability and still have the same great performance. It has a new Core M processor that will keep it performing well while using the least amount of power possible.

This new version of the tablet is 1.6 pounds, 11.01 x 6.96 x 0.42 inches which makes it about 15 percent thinner than the last version. When you are talking about the thickness of a tablet, 15 percent is actually quite a bit. It is still about the same weight though, but we can deal with that because of the performance. As far as the design goes, it still shares the same looks as well for the most part. It has a black soft touch back with magnesium sides and a gloss black bezel. The Intel Core M processor is available in either 2GHz or 2.6GHz. And thanks to the processor, the tablet doesn’t get hot enough to require any type of cooling. It also makes it quite a bit faster than the old model as well.
Just like the version before, this new Venue 11 Pro also has a 10.8 inch 1920 x 1080 display with a 10 point capacitive touch. According to Dell, the panel will provide 400 nits of brightness as opposed to the 151 that the previous model offered. It also comes with a keyboard that you can attach, making it possible to replace you laptop if you’d like. There will also be a few different keyboards coming out for it in the future that will be geared toward traveling, and will have keys designed to be easier on your fingers. Whatever that means. It also comes with a docking station for hooking up a monitor and a full sized mouse.
Other connectivity options include a full sized USB 3.0 port, a micro HDMI out, a microSD card slot, and a headphone jack. It also has Bluetooth 4.0 and a built in wireless card for connecting to Wi-FI.
As far as what is to be found under the hood, the Intel Core M processor isn’t the only thing. It also comes with either 4 or 8 GB of RAM and 64, 128, or 256GB of solid state storage. It comes with an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front facing camera, which would be more than enough for video conferences.
Overall, the new Dell Venue 11 Pro 7000 looks to be pretty impressive in more than one way. It could really be a worthy investment.
