Browse the rich selection of Dell tablets at Staples® to find a reliable portable mobile device that can complement or replace your PC. While there are Dell Android™ tablets, the brand mostly makes tablets that run Windows® operating system. These are powerful machines with fast Intel® processors. They are perfect for work as well as playing games, streaming movies, reading digital books, and browsing the web.
Choose Between Dell Tablets and Convertible Laptops Dell makes two classes of tablet devices: standalone tablets and convertible laptops that can transform into tablets. Convertibles have foldable designs with hinges that allow their keyboards to swing all the way back. These hybrid PCs are ideal for those who need tablets but seldom require them. Standalone tablets are slate-like computers. They may come with detachable keyboards or not. Tablets are generally lighter than convertible laptops and are available in smaller screen sizes. They are more suitable for one-handed use. Choose one if you do not plan to do a lot of typing on the machine. Dedicated tablets are also better than convertible laptops for inking documents and drawing with a stylus.
Features to Look for When Comparing Dell Tablets The key features to consider when shopping for tablets are screen size, processor, RAM, storage, and battery life. Tablets usually have screen sizes ranging from 7 inches to 12 inches. Models with bigger screen sizes are often impractical to carry around. Choose a small tablet with a screen size between 7 and 9 inches if you only want a device for light browsing, playing mobile games, reading ebooks, and using mobile apps. To watch movies or create and edit documents, get a model with at least a 9-inch screen.
Display resolution is another important factor to consider. Look for a 720p screen for a small tablet. If you opt for a model with a display measuring 9 inches or larger, make sure it has at least a 1080p screen. Pick a Dell tablet with a dual or quad-core Intel processor and a minimum of 2GB RAM. Choose one with at least 64GB of flash memory and support for expandable storage. A tablet with an excellent battery life should last 10 hours on a full charge. A long battery life is important for a portable device as you can leave its charger at home.
Are There Rugged Dell Tablets? Yes. Dell offers rugged tablets. These feature shock-absorbent materials and have sealed ports that keep out dust and water. Dell's rugged tablets can survive extreme conditions and are ideal for remote field locations. They also have screens made of shatter and scratch-resistant glass.
Can You Run Apps on Dell Tablets? Yes. You can run mobile apps on the brand's tablets. While Android tablets get their apps from Google's Play Store, Windows tablets have an app store for mobile apps and some desktop programs.
What Essential Accessories Should You Get for Dell Tablets? A case is an important accessory because it can provide a detachable keyboard while doubling as a protective sleeve for the mobile device. A tablet can also have a keyboard dock with a built-in second battery or hard drive. Also, consider getting a Dell stylus to write directly on the tablet's screen and an expansion dock that increases the number of available ports.
