    I've got an opportunity to buy the 5175 (with M5, 8/256) but unfortunately it has no LTE/sim card slot.
    Is there any option to add it? I know there was such a possibility in Venue 11 but what about 5175?
    If the model does not have sim card slot, does it still have lte antenna inside and the only thing is to buy some m.2 wwan card and connect it?

    Has anyone confirmed that the 5175's SSD interface can accept both SATA and PCI-E storage? I'd rather upgrade to the faster bus so I could use in another modern device.

    First page shows storage options with SSD M.2 PCIe NVMe 256/512 GB.

    My 5175 with 512GB SSD has a Intel Pro5400 Series Solid State Drive which is not a NVMe drive.
    Correction:
    I was wrong, it is an INTEL SSDSCKKF512H6 512GB.

    When I search for this type Google says it is a Intel® SSD 600p Series SSD. But I do not know if this is really correct...

    I know the Latitude 11 is backward compatible with a lot of the Venue 11 accessories, and I'm wondering if it also works in the other direction. I just picked up a Venue 11 Pro 7140 and I like the looks of the Latitude 11's folio keyboard. Is there any reason it wouldn't work with a DV11P 7140?

    Are you saying that a DV11P not built LTE ready could have a sim card reader added somehow? If so, could you point me in the direction of any threads or tutorials spelling out how to so that. I know there is a thread on how to add a sim card reader to a non-LTE ThinkPad 10, but unlike my DV11P, the ThinkPad already has a dummy sim card slot.

    Hi all. I have just picked up a refurb Latitude 11 5179 here in the Uk with 8GB Ram and 256GB SSD to replace my trusty Dell Venue 11 Pro 7139 that I have been running overclocked well for the last year and wondered if there is any need to mess about with Intel Extreme Tuning Utility with these?

    Does anyone have any experience with ThrottleStop and this tablet? I've had this for a year now and though I've been very happy with the performance, with recent updates I've noticed the tablet runs hot and that battery life was down to 6-8h per day.

    I've since reinstalled Windows, set up a number of custom power plans, and unlocked a bunch of power configuration options with the registry to try to throttle down the CPU, as well as use ThrottleStop. I've now gotten it back to around 10h but especially with ThrottleStop the screen would flicker and occasionally crash.

    Was just wondering if there's anyone out there who's used TS on this tablet for battery life purposes and whether they had any pointers.

    I've tried XTU for overclock on my tablet and it crashes even at the most subtle OC...but I don't really know what I'm doing and I was just following various guides online.

    I am currently -78mV undervolted on my CPU, more for battery life and battery temperature concerns than anything. I don't think I've ever seen my CPU thermal throttle but I'm sure running at 83C for prolonged periods is not doing my battery any favors.

    Guys, I finally got the 5175 and I really like it, but iv'e got a question.
    I bought the keyboard as well (the normal one, with backlight and pen) but when I hold the tablet from the keyboard seems it bend and causes trackpad botton press. Is the same for you too or just mine that is broken? Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about. I don't have that issue with my 5175 keyboard, but I have the exact same issue with one of my Venue 11 Pro keyboards. You might want to consider a return or refund, if that's an option.
    By the by, I much prefer to use a Venue 11 Pro keyboard with my Latitude 5175 (in fact, that's the exact combination I'm using to type this). It's not backlit, and you can't tilt the tablet screen as far back. But the keys are better spaced for my fat fingers, making it generally more comfortable to use.
