We estimated costs for an organization to purchase, deploy, manage, and secure a Dell Venue 11 Pro 2 in 1 with Intel Core processor featuring Intel vPro technology versus a sub-$1,000 laptop combined with either an iPad or Android tablet. At first blush, one might expect a laptop and a low-cost tablet to be cheaper than a 2 in 1 Intel vPro. That was not true for this comparison: The Dell Venue 11 Pro device at $1289.97 including tablet dock and keyboard case did cost more than the laptop model we used in this analysis, which was priced at $779.00. The cost advantages of the Dell Venue 11 Pro became obvious when we added in the costs of the tablet, hardware support, consumer tablet replacement costs, and costs to deploy, manage, secure, and support two devices versus one Dell Venue 11 Pro 2 in 1 Intel vPro device with business-grade security. The savings would become even more dramatic if you factored in the costs associated with additional peripheral devices and accessories, and the time employees must spend managing files and content (costs we omitted from our analysis).
For companies that want to provide their workers with tablet devices and for companies that support bring-your-own employee-purchased or BYOD solutions, the benefits of a single 2 in 1 device such as the Dell Venue 11 Pro 2 in 1 Intel vPro are many.
