That's just not acceptable for a $1000+ device in 2013. I doubt many would disagree. Most current gen cell phones have a comparable resolution, and many have higher.

Yeah, I cringed at the resolution. It reminds me of a guy using a 480p monitor with a GTX 560.

A post 2010 gaming device is not a gaming device if it doesn't at least support 1600x900.

the tablet barely played Crysis 3 on Low at decent frames. they said at 1366 it was getting 25-30 fps on low settings but played every other game perfectly fine on high settings with a steady 30fps

Seems like a real niche product. Screen resolution is far too low but then they'd likely have to include a much better GPU to be effective. Gets super hot and noisy too. But the price alone is the real deal breaker. At least $1250 with the game accessory. Just absurd.

the pro model is 1299, the dock is 100.00 and the gaming accessory is 250.00 so in turn its a total of: 1650 without tax

tbh its a gaming device if it runs games regardless of type. 1366x768 isnt that bad for a 11" screen while 1080p would be nice but IMO the text will be too small and stresses the GPU too hard. as for price i really dont care and gladly pay for it if it offers me what i want then i want aka if i want to play some real games on the train i can rather then being stuck with a 3DS or PS vita.

i still game on my M11x R3 so its rather similar to the edge except for the keyboard and game pad and the edge would really step up my enjoyment

if you want the keyboard they offer one at Q3 this year

You're wrong, they chose 766p screen just because their gpu was capable at playing games at medium/high at that resolution, if they went for 1080p screen then you would be playing on min most of the time.
Price for this unit is very high and that controller thingy costs like 450$ which is just over the top ,but that's what you should be expecting from razer.

Razer is absolutely horrible at pricing and spec-ing out the machines they make. Take their Razer Blade laptop as an example... It has a GTX 660M, 8GB of DDR3, a 500GB and a measly 64GB SSD and yet somehow it retails for $2500.

The sad thing is, they will still sell them, regardless of the horrible specs and pricing. Gahh. No way in hell I would pay over $700 for that Tablet.

it's a demo unit from Dell that I was trying to actually use out in the field. Didnt work out too well.

anyways, i can see the point about the razor.

The latitude 10 has many options for security that other tablets don't.

I don't see why you couldn't type a quick email on it in the first place tbh. Using either the integrated mail app or just an outlook.com/gmail.com site in metro IE works fine for me.

If you're trying to use it as a pure tablet, you should be using metro or software made for use with a tablet/slate/digitizer. If you want to use the desktop as normal, put it in the dock.

Since the thing comes with a dock, they're not assuming you're going to be sitting there tapping out word documents and spreadsheets on the screen(although you actually could). You should be connecting peripherals to the dock or using the Wacom stylus etc.

At the end of the day, it sounds like you're both using the wrong tool for the job you need to do and not understanding what the tool is for in the first place.

The L10 was obviously made for people who don't require physical keyboard and you are obviously not one of those people.
