Microsoft isn’t messing around this Monday December 9th, in fact they are serious when they say that they will be selling some of the brand new Dell Venue 8 Pro Tablets for only $99. Sure, the quantities are limited at that price, but don’t think that they are joking. If you are one of the first 100 to order online on Monday, or one of the first 10 per Microsoft Store then this deal will come true for you. Normally this tablet is going to retail for $299, so by them knocking $200 off the sticker they are taking a loss in order to create some buzz about the tablet.

Even at the $199 price, this is a good deal. Unlike a lot of other tablets, the Dell Venue 8 Pro will be running a full version of Windows 8, just like an ordinary computer. This will mean that this new tablet will be more capable of running real software, rather than just downloaded applications.
Dell may not be looking to overtake the iPad any time soon with its new tablet, but they do offer something quite different than the Apple giant. The full Operating System will make this tablet more practical for students, businesses, and those who wish to replace their aging laptop with something equally capable. The only drawback to the Dell when compared with some of the other Windows 8 tablets available is that it does not come with a keyboard, though a wireless one may be possible using Bluetooth.
