The Dell Latitude XT: A solid tablet, but at what cost?

Dual-touch technology, tons of accessory options and a great display are just some of the highlights of Dell's new Tablet PC, but the price tag might be too high for most businesses.

Dell finally broke into the Tablet PC market with the release of the Latitude XT. There was a lot of hype and speculation around this release and we finally got our hands on a review unit. Now, we have the chance to see what the fuss is all about. The XT has a solid design and runs on a 1.2GHz ULV Core 2 Duo processor. It also has the new N-trig touchscreen technology, which is quite impressive. The pen and capacitive touch technology are both very accurate and responsive.

Pros

  • Dual touch technology, capacitive touch
  • LED backlit display
  • Solid keyboard
  • Solid pen with pressure sensitive nibs
  • Great battery life with slice battery
  • Tons of accessory options
  • Cons
  • Dull design, but business like
  • Expensive $$$
  • Eraser on pen is a button, feels awkward
  • Latch doesn't lock lid
