Dell 8-inch tablet to sell for under $100
The Microsoft Store will be selling the Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet for just $99 on Monday. The 8-inch Windows 8.1 tablet will be discounted from its normal price of $99 as part of Microsoft's 12 Days of Deals promotion for the holiday season. All 77 Microsoft Stores across the United States will offer the deal to the first 20 people in line for the Venue 8 Pro tablets, starting at 10 a.m.
The online Microsoft Store will also be carrying the tablet for $99, with the first 100 people starting shopping at 10 a.m. being eligible to take advantage of the offer. Once Microsoft exhausts that initial supply, the tablet will still be available at a discount, with customers able to buy it for $199.
The Dell Venue 8 Pro features a 1,280 x 800, 8-inch touchscreen and 32GB of internal storage. It is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM running Windows 8.1.
The 12 Days of Deals promotion will run from December 9 through December 20. Microsoft has posted the promotion, with a new one being revealed over the span of time. Microsoft is also holding sales on other products, including the original Surface and Surface Pro.
