Dell Latitude 5285 review

 

Since its release, the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 has been the no-brainer recommendation for anyone interested in a powerful and portable 2-in-1 laptop/tablet hybrid. But as of late, a number of worthy competitors have cropped up, including the Dell...

The Dell Latitude 5285 is a powerful performer that runs smoothly when multitasking. It has buttons on its bottom edge that auto-deploy the kickstand. Durable build and good battery life.

Base price doesn't include the keyboard or stylus. Security features will mostly appeal to business users.

The Dell Latitude 5285 is a Surface-style tablet in business attire. Its IT-ready security features may not appeal to consumers, but the clever pop-out kickstand will.

Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1

 

The Dell Latitude 5285 is a capable business-focused 2-in-1 Windows tablet with Core i7-processor power and enough battery life to last well into overtime. It could easily replace your work laptop.

11 hours of battery life. Two USB-C ports. Travel Keyboard cover and Active Pen included in tested configuration.

Pricey. Heavier than rivals. Not as stable in lap as a clamshell.

The Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1 is an attractive corporate alternative to consumer-based detachable-hybrid tablets like the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. It matches the that class-leading PC in style, dimensions, and functionality, with better performance...

Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1

 

The Dell Latitude 5285 is a speedy detachable 2-in-1 with short battery life and heating problems.

Dell Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1 Convertible Review

 

Deja Vu. To the casual observer, the Dell Latitude 12 5285 2-in-1 bears more than a passing resemblance to Microsoft's well-established Surface Pro 4. From the screen size to the overall dimensions and looks down to the accessories like the detachable...

extremely bright display ; good performance ; very quiet ; very easy to maintain/upgrade ; 2x USB-Type C ; keyboard dock & Active Stylus included

gets very hot ; lower resolution than competitors ; no Thunderbolt ; somewhat heavy ; even the more expensive SKUs come only with a 1-year warranty standard ; expensive

Dell's Latitude 12 5285 is a solid business convertible. The 2-in-1 combines good ergonomics, decent speed and plenty of endurance into a sleek, appealing package. Yes, it looks a lot like Microsoft's Surface Pro 4, but we honestly don't expect Dell to...

Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1 review: A business-class Surface Pro clone with a clever kickstand

 

The Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1 belongs to the growing army of Surface Pro clones , and is designed for business users who want a small, light two-piece Windows 10 system that's very capable and will travel well.

Light and compact ; All-day battery life ; Mobile broadband support ; Clever kickstand mechanism

Travel Keyboard and Active Pen are separate purchases ; Keyboard is disappointingly flexible ; Moderate screen resolution

Dell Latitude 5285 2-in-1 Review and Ratings

 

The Latitude 5285 is a Surface Pro-like 2-in-1 for business, with the latest Intel processors, military-grade ruggedness, and a host of security and configuration options.

Sleek yet rugged design ; Strong overall performer ; Long battery life

Thin keyboard flexes a great deal ; Low screen resolution ; Standard warranty lasts only one year

As noted earlier, Dell offers a number of configurations for the Latitude 5285. The line starts at $899 for a Core i3 model, and our Core i7-based test system sits at the opposite end of the spectrum at nearly $1,900. Even at this price, the system...
