The Dell Latitude XT is a thin, convertible tablet ultra-portable computer with a small notebook form factor and a 12.1 inch LCD screen that is capable of being written on with a stylus or by the touch of a finger through the implementation of digitizing tablet technology and a touch screen. For comfortable tablet use, the screen rotates 180 degrees and lays down flat on top of the keyboard. It is ideal for highly mobile professionals and can easily be used in a tablet or tradition notebook computer configuration.

Evaluation

The form of rotating portion is well composed. The balance with a key top when being rotated, strength of the rotating portion and its performance make us feel the exquisiteness of the product when manufactured. It is also favorably evaluated that the forming of details are solved by the design. The design of user authentication unit is also well harmonized. Although the attention tends to be focused on the movable portion, the design of other parts is also created faithfully.
