Dell Latitude 5175 10" 128GB WiFi Tablet, Core m5, Windows 10 Pro, 4GB RAM £299.99 @ Box.co.uk

Found 8th Feb
I thought this was a decent price for a well spec'd Windows 10 Tablet. Intel Core m5, 4GB RAM, 10.8" Screen and 128GB of SSD Storage.

Cheaper - yes; better - why?



Ignore the resident troll.

Yes, it's cheaper but the CPU in the Linx 12v64 is a potato.
33225503-fZby9.jpg
So you pay 15% less for the Linx 12v64 (price on Amazon), but:

1) 63% slower CPU
2) 50% less storage (Linx 12v64 also uses eMMC which is much slower than the proper SSD in this machine)
3) 14% less battery life
4) Comes with Windows 10 Home instead of Pro.
5) Linx 12v64 weighs 25% more
6) Linx 12v64 does not have USB Type-C
7) Around 30% better graphics performance on the m5-6Y57 over the x5-Z8300

If it was android I'd have VERY tempted.
Don't forget Quidcrap and Topcrapback, there may be other more reliable cashback sites that I haven't mentioned.
I've been looking at these on fleabay. The Venue Pro is a good shout on there too - similar specs.

I reckon these would make excellent lap-based xbox streaming tablets.

The samsung tab pro would probably interest you that is 12.2 inch android.

just to add to ollie87's points above: the quality of this should quite high seeing how Latitude is Dell's mainstream business line.

Thanks for providing all the specs. I knew the rough specs and knew the troll was talking rubbish, so wanted him to justify it. Some people have nothing better to do with their lives and are ignorant. It's OK for people in the know, who won't take any notice but it can mislead genuine buyers.

Anyway, have a good evening.

amiduos.com/ runs like a dream on a similarly spec'd Surface.....
I have a Fire HD8, and one thing I like about it, is I can turn off the display, and will keep the battery forever.
How many days would last the battery of this tablet with the screen off?
If only the Windows on screen keyboard was as good as those on Android with swype etc. You really need a keyboard to get the most out of this which seems very expensive. I was tempted but I've had a small windows tablet before without a keyboard and it wasn't very useful...

AmiDuos is a particular d for Android Emulator (don't forget?).

But if you're going down that route, there's Blue Stacks, Andy, Remix OS (and/or) Remix OS Player, as well as a whole host of other free Android Emulator's out there (within the realms of the Windows/Android Emulator World, etc?, lol).

So there's more than just a casual handful of options?.

As for whether or not all those other 'options' would all perform in the same vain as that of your 'preferred choice' or whatever? (is a whole separate/different argument in itself I guess?). :-)

Good question, I believe by nature, Android Device's just have better energy management facilities built-in to it's 'core' from the off? (be that hardware, software, or both?!).

But Windows 10 on the other hand has different 'tricks' up it's sleeve's (that it's former/previous beast's did not), namely better battery management capabilities (that I believe both Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 did not?).

So via Windows 10 Setting, you will be able to work some interesting magic with that, that wasn't previously possible etc (and arguably better energy efficiency than it's Android Tablet equivalent I believe?).

So a Windows 10 Tablet could arguably prove to be a better animal for your money?.

But saying that, I could be wrong ...

That's an interesting argument you raise there, I have a few Windows Tablet's, and I always find the whole virtual keyboard thing to be a completely different animal to that of when I'm bouncing off of the Android Tablet's, and/or other Android Device's etc - but on a real, I believe that that's simply the nature of the beast I reckon? (then again, I could be wrong?, lol). :-)

Windows being Windows, I'm sure somewhere there there's a Windows-based virtual keyboard out there somewhere (to install upon these Windows Tablet's like), right?, or ...

It just may be worth the headache of that infamous research?. :-)

Ditto that too. :-)

But saying that, this may hold the 'key' (depending on your take on it also?).

What you think:

Though saying that, the above 'option' (competent as it is), gives you a mammoth supply of free Android ISO's to play with etc ...

Android ISO's of which allllll need first downloading, then burning to a CD/DVD, then finally 'executing' in the correct manner, in order to get it there in the first place - if I'm not mistaken, I don't believe ISO Mounters/Emulators, like Power ISO, ISO Buster, Alcohol 120, and like would work this way 100% for these kind of purposes as the dual-boot thing?.

(As for the Android ISO to be truly effective, it'll need to shell-out of the Windows engine, and shell into DOS via the POST bootstrap - which I don't believe it can do?).

And to my knowledge, not many BIOS's can boot-up off of a raw ISO.


And the OP's fancy Windows Tablet doesn't have a CD/DVD drive either?, so ...

You could always install an external CD/DVD ROM drive for such purpose instead I supposed?. :-)
Ps.
Are there any Student Discounts anywhere, for the OP's Windows Tablet please?. :-)

I would like to see some test about how long would last.
My ultimate goal would be to get a tablet like this and install a version of Chrome OS. I believe would be the best between android and Linux

I agree, a dummy run or two could/would prove very helpful indeed, hehehe.

As for the latter part of your comment? (that's interesting again).

To start with, both Android and Chrome OS are Linux based Platforms anyway ...

You know not even the current version of Chrome OS support's all the APK/Google Play App's as yet right? (Google pitches to support all such in newer/cuter versions of it's Chrome OS (so unfortunately not for now basically?).

As for Chrome OS OS as a whole, depending where you get it from (as some come as an Executable File, but the bulk come as an ISO).

If your flavour of Chrome OS comes as an ISO, the following may just apply also perhaps:

So that too may possibly need to be bared in mind also?. :-)

I'd also love any comments/feedback, on any of my above aforementioned too (if anyone else also has any additional/complimentary 'anythings' to add as well, etc?).

Thanx. :-)

Nice talk, I am more or less thinking out loud. I have not done any proper research, but I found a PDF explaining how to update the OS on this tablet, and was by using the bios.

I though that the Chrome OS was full supporting android Apps, but I never tested that.

Thanx, no problem, I too was brainstorming a few ideas also, so fair enough.

But if what you want is actually viable in some way, then so be it also? (being able to dual-boot it in some way would be ace?!). :-)
Speaking of things dual-boot/multiple platforms or whatever, got me thinking ...

Is this 'system' strong enough to accommodate a virtualised version of Mac OS in Windows via something like Virtual Box, VMWARE Player, etc etc?.

Or would their combined individual system requirements end up killing this Windows based Tablet?.

Does anyone know?, thanx.

I'm assuming you're not referring to that of the Windows 10 Pro system/security updates and the like, I take it? (or something else perhaps?), or am I mistaken ...

Fair enough, that's cool. :-)

It appears that only you and myself exist on this Thread at the moment, lol.

Enjoy what's left of the weekend. :-)
There's a multitude of free VPN's out there for the Android Platform.

But out of interest, if this was to be used to stream film's from various sources via the Windows element of this Tablet, my question would be, is there any decent Windows VPN's out there that can then be used for this Windows Tablet? (a free VPN preferable, but a cheap paid for one, if nothing else?).

Thanx.
