Dell Inspiron Duo
Responsive Touchscreen, Innovative Design, More Memory And Hard Drive Space
Innovative convertible tablet design. High-resolution screen. Excellent keyboard and mouse button combination. Sturdy netbook. 2GB of DDR3 memory included. Fast-spinning hard drive.
Attractive, sturdy design, Responsive touch screen, Good netbook performance
Inventive design; finger-friendly touch interface; reasonably priced.
Innovative vertical rotating screen design, Extremely sturdy build, Great chiclet keyboard
Tediously slow all around; get used to a lot of waiting. Screen is hideous. Too heavy for regular, tablefree use.
Touch Software Really Needs Faster Processor, Below Average Battery Life, Limited Peripheral Ports
Bare-bones feature set. Small, non-removable battery. Poor battery life. Touch functionality is flawed and sluggish. Components are not equipped to handle Windows 7 Home Premium. Cluttered with third-party and proprietary software.
Sluggish touch software, Short battery life, No video-out or memory card slot on unit
Sluggish software; no SD card slot, Ethernet jack, or video output; unimpressive battery life.
Terrible viewing angles, Less than 3.5 hours of battery life, Software layer is incredibly sluggish
