Devil's Advocate on Venue 11 Pro
I need something portable to replace my aging XPS 15. I have a fully capable desktop, so I don't feel the need to get a full laptop grade device if it can save me money. Usage of keyboard would have been very limited on such device, rather pen input would play a dominant part. Given that until yesterday there was only Surface Pro (2) meeting my criteria. It would have been slightly over the top for my needs, by given available choices I was gonna get the Pro 2. If Surface 2 had pen support, I would have gone that way.
But now that Venue 11 Pro is announced, it looks like the perfect device for my need. Nice looking, seemingly good build quality, pen input, array of accessories, a light weight processor would save me money while giving better battery life, not 3:2, but none of them are. All in all it looks like the device I should get.
So now need the Tribe's help, I need a devil's advocate to point out reasons I should not get the Venue 11 Pro, and get the Surface Pro 2. I don't have anything against it, or Dell, but I do want to make sure I am not missing any caveats.
