    I modified an anti-glare screen protector for a Venue 11 Pro 7140 and it helps a lot when I use the device outside or in front of a window where the sun is shining in. I also think that the pen feels better on the plastic screen protector, but my daughter says she likes the feel of the pen better without the screen protector, so I suppose that's a matter of taste.

    I wish there were more devices with nice matte displays, like the Toshiba Portege Z20t.

    And, what is "frosted plastic"?

    Since the Venue 11 Pro models have the exact same dimensions, all you have to do is cut our or punch out a hole where the selfie camera is. Other than that it's already a perfect fit. I don't know if there are glass ones for the Venue 11 Pro, though. I haven't checked.

    In terms of performarnce do you think there's a reasonable difference between the 4 GB and 8 GB RAM models?

    I recently bought a used Dell 5175 8/256 on ebay. Has anyone applied the newer BIOS with the Spectre & Meltdown patches? I read somewhere the CPU performance hit after the patches was only 3% but the SSD performance hit was more like 30%. Does anyone know more about this?

    Personally I'm planning to go with only 8GB devices moving forward to stay future proof. But I haven't had experience with the Latitude 5000 4gb, so I can't speak directly to your question.

    when the device is in sleep mode , how do you wake it up ? By only pressing the power button or also with any key on keyboard ?
    Does it consume a lot battery in connected standby sleep mode ?

    I don't know. I put it to sleep one night with the keyboard connected and the next day the battery was dead. Maybe it woke up during the night. Sleep power consumption should be 1 watt vs 3 watts at idle.

    I have not tested performance with latest bios and patches.
