The Dell XPS 10 Tablet PC will be a serious contender in the tablet PC market because of its unique security features and last but not least the new Windows RT OS it will run on. But many consumers are still unclear whether to buy, if they should maybe rather purchase an iPad 3 with its already tried and proven technology.
Let us take a closer look at those two tablet PCs and their differences.
When it comes to weight and dimensions, the two are almost identical with the iPad weighing 17 grams more than Dell’s tablet. This difference can safely be ignored.
The XPS 10 has a 10.1 screen with 1366×768 pixel resolution with the iPad 3 a slightly smaller screen, 9.70” inches, but superior resolution of 2048×1536. This might be a factor if display resolution plays a big role for you, for example if you want to watch HD videos in their full glory.
Internally, the XPS 10 has a S4 CPU running at 1500 Mhz while the iPad runs off an ARM Cortex A9 processor clocked at 1000 Mhz. Both have a built-in storage capacity of 32GB.
When it comes to other features, like wireless connectivity and I/O ports, there are not too many differences. Both feature all common wireless standards up to 802.11n, Bluetooth 4.0 and the usual ports for USB and headphones.
Which one is better – Dell’s XPS 10 Tablet or Apple’s iPad 3?
This is a question you’d have to answer yourself based on your own requirements. We would give the iPad a preference if you want the ultimate multimedia experience, but this does not make the XPS 10 a bad contender. In fact, Dell’s offering might be just the ideal tablet if you require it for work. As always, it could be wise if you are able to test out both before you make your decision.
