Dell Latitude 10 - great device - only a little Bl
by James L on 12/14/2013
This thing is as fast and smooth as any 2013 model. The only issue was the Bluetooth. Anytime I hooked up a second device to Bluetooth (like a mouse and keyboard) neither would work well and the Wifi started to suffer. Simply change a setting on the shared Wifi/Bluetooth card (Broadcom 802.11abgn Wireless SDIO Adapter) and it works like a champ. The 'Bluetooth Collaboration' in the 'Advanced' settings needs to be set to 'Disable'. This setting causes the device to pull too much power.
Good tablet for the price. I originally thought I was getting the ST2E version, with HDMI, but after playing with it for a while I figured it would do the job. It does need a good cover/stand, since the form factor is pretty large and not easy to type with one hand (compared to my 7" tablet). Overall pretty satisfied since it will run most programs available for windows.
Love the device, hate Dell. When I updated to Windows 8.1, Dells' Restore function ceased to work. They want $39 to update.
Not Altatac's fault, but it would have been nice if they knew this was going to happen and pre-installed Windows 8.1 and gave free restore app.
I received the refirb and started working with it, the touch screen would often not respond. Ultimately, the desktop started fading to the point of high difficulty reading it. It would also totally lock up at times and not even let me do a normal shut down to get out of an activity. It took a hard shutdown to turn off.
I have contacted Altatac, the seller for a return authorization, but they have yet to respond with one.
Take full advantage of the optimized touch experience of Windows 8 Pro with the 25.6 cm (10.1) capacitive multi-touch HD display, and merge the convenience and mobility of a tablet with the productivity of a PC. Mobile professionals pick up right where they left off with their familiar business applications.
