Link: Dell Venue 8 Pro 32 GB Tablet (Windows 8.1) at Amazon.
The Amazon Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7 aren’t the only low-priced tablets available this holiday season. Microsoft and Dell have joined the fold, bringing the Dell Venue 8 Pro, with the full version of Windows 8, to the market for $229.
Update: The price of this tablet might have changed since this article was published on November 25th, 2013.
It’s normally priced at $299, so this is pretty big savings. With that extra cash you can pickup a small bluetooth keyboard that would be the perfect companion. Something like any one of these.
This 8-inch tablet is perfect for those wanting the full Microsoft Office experience on a handheld device. And because it has the full version of Windows 8, you can install the likes of Google Chrome or Firefox, Photoshop, and other x86 legacy software and still have access to the mobile-focused Windows Store. The best of both worlds.
