A professional hybrid, without the pro-level price

The best professional Windows 10 tablets, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet and Microsoft Surface Pro 4, can be expensive, easily topping $1,200 or more, depending on the configuration. Looking to give business types, who often need products from Dell's IT-friendly Latitude line, a chance to get in on the trendy hybrid game for less, that company now has a midpriced two-in-one called the Latitude 11 5175.

The body, thick compared to some more premium tablets we've seen, is still partly made of magnesium, and the 10.8-inch display has a high resolution for that screen size, at 1,920x1,080. The tablet half itself is 10.8mm thick and 1.56 pounds, but that jumps to 21.2mm thick and 3.15 pounds when you add the keyboard dock.

Helping the Latitude 11 thread the needle between higher-end Core i5 and Core i7 tablets and lower-end Intel Atom models is the use of Intel's Core M processors. These chips sit in the middle, performance-wise, but also offer good battery life and they work well in small, slimmer systems that need to operate with limited or no internal fans.

The Latitude 11 5175 isn't the fanciest professional tablet you can get, but it looks like a good middle-ground, and will start at $749 when it's available in the US in early February.
