I am a big 2 in 1 user. I got the Asus T200 4GB RAM edition 6 months ago. The dimensions felt nice and I liked the keyboard containing 2 USBs an Ethernet port and a hard drive dock.

But I also like performance. I don't need crazy performance but the ability to run CSGO on default settings might be nice. I am not sure if the venue 11 is that much better in performance.

Basically features like broadband, a core processor and a non plastic device seem appealing. For around the same price.

If anyone has tried the Dell venue pro 11, would it be worth it to upgrade to the venue 11 pro???

Thanks!

The Dell Venue Pro 11 7000 series has a Core i5-4220Y (1.6GHz base / 2.0GHz Turbo Boost) in their least expensive model; $700. It would a pretty significant upgrade from the Atom CPU used in the Asus T200. Just be aware that the keyboard is sold separately; $43 for the "Slim" Keyboard (no ports or battery) / $110 for the "Tablet" keyboard (battery & charging port).

The "dell venue pro 11 7130" falls into the 7000 series so it is not exactly similarly priced as the Asus T200. You are confusing the 5000 series with the 7000 series. The Dell Venue Pro 11 5000 series sells for as low as $300 and they have Intel Atom CPUs. You also need to purchase the keyboard separately.

It wouldn't be an upgrade. Per the specs from Dell the Dell Venue 11 Pro has a Intel Atom Z3775. The Asus T200 has a Atom Z3795. The Asus T200 has a faster CPU but both the Dell and Asus have the same Gen 7 Intel HD graphics so you would actually lose performance going to the Dell Venue 11 Pro.

If you want something better and similar you would have to go to something like the Surface Pro 3 with a i3/i5/i7.

 
There was a thread this week from a user looking for 11" laptop with Intel HD4000+ graphics, and someone mentioned there that all 11" laptops are Atom-based.

That person also mentioned that 13.3" Dell (with very thin bezel) is close in size to 11", while having better CPU/GPU.

Weird. I didn't find anything else like that. That would be an upgrade from the T200.
