Update - GPS


The GPS - it does NOT have one after all. I didn't realize that the device was using Bing to determine location based on wifi hotspots. I just wanted to correct my previous review.

This is an update

Nothing new to add

Super Tablet


I really like this computer in a tablet form. I am so glad I got it. I have a Windows phone and a windows 8.1 desktop. I love both of those. I really am glad that the whiners about windows 8 are diminishing. This wonderful tablet should help stop the...

Price, Quality, Ease of use, Look and Feel

this is a great device,but i wish i had bought the 64gb one instead.There is not enough room for programs.One thing i like about this is it has a lot of function for a tablet.I bought an OTG adaptor,and i,ve hooked up keyboards,mice,and even a...

A "full" PC and a great price


32GB version gives me what I want, a decent note taking system with a stylus. Also allows me to have a portable system for web surfing. If you want more storage you can buy an SD card. If you install the office suite that comes with it it does take up...

Great connected standby battery life

If you want a tablet with a stylus, the Dell stylus is not ideal

Excellent pro tablet at a bargain


I am blown away at the value this tablet has to offer. This is a Pro windows tab, so it has a fully featured windows 8.1 OS, and includes a license for Microsoft Office Home and Student (a 140$ dollar retail cost on its own)!Besides that the tablet is...

Fast Processor, responsive touch screen

Dedicated windows key placed oddly at top of device

This tablet is good for the price.


This tablet is great if you use a lot Microsoft Office. It does come with home and student office. If you need adobe flash player it has that too. Basically, this tablet is good for light tasks.This product is... responsive touch screen, Good sound...

It has windows 8.1 unlike other windows tablets that have windows RT

The Screen is not full HD. But it does the job. The battery life is six hours in heavy use, less than my expectation

Great Tablet with +port to charge and use USB port


Full USB and Charging at the same time...This looks awesome since it runs full Windows 8. One CON that I see and have read elsewhere is that you can't connect a dock or peripheral and charge the Venue at the same time.I wasn't going to buy it because...

Small, light, powerful, runs full Windows 8

Have to buy adapter to use USB and charge at the same time

A Little Powerhouse of a Device


First, let me get the cons out of the way. 1) It is an open, full windows device, which means virus' could be more problematic than other OS(even win RT devices) tablets. 2) There are some early growing pains with the OS, drivers, and hardware. There...

Flexibility, expandable, very affordable

Some OS/hardware/driver bugs
