The Venue 11 Pro 7000 won't win any awards for groundbreaking design. Dell has barely deviated from the format of previous Venue 11 Pro models, save for moving a few ports around the tablet's edges, and it's fair to say the look remains more “functional...

The Dell only falls down in a couple of areas. Its 2MP front camera is only suitable for Skype calls, and the 8mp rear shooter produces shots that are a little too dark for our liking. And, when it comes to audio, there's little to shout about: the...

Betting on a full 1080p display partly justifies the Dell Venue 11 Pro's higher price compared to other Atom-powered tablets. But the keyboard dock add-on, which should turn this into a functional laptop alternative, is too expensive and occasionally...
