Dell-lightful: Computers From Dell

The Dell Venue Pro 8 can be had from your local Office Depot for $20 less, brand spankin’ new. That’s a shameful price on a refurb, Woot.

The one you linked is not 64GB though.

For some reason I cant find the Dell Venue 8 android with 64gs anywhere on the web including Dell. So how did they get one? Are they sure its not must 16 or 32? Not talking about the Pro (windows).

+1 here

The Android “Venue 8” (not the “Venue 8 Pro” Windows 8.1 tablet) is only listed on Dell’s site as available in 16GB or 32GB variants. I can find no information of a 64GB Android version anywhere.

If this is truly a 64GB Android tablet, this is a great deal due to the way Kit Kat changes external memory usage (you can no longer put programs on the external cards… without a LOT of hacking in Kit Kat). The Venue 8 has a OTA update to 4.4.2, so having 64GB for programs and an external card slot for media for $129 is a darn good deal… IF, that is, this thing is real.

So, Woot… can you clarify on on the Venue 8 here: http://www.woot.com/offers/venue-8-dual-core-android-tablet?ref=cnt_wp_2_20???

Is it really 64GB?

Thank you.

It is not! It’s 16GB and we should have changed it now, sorry about that, apparently the specs got transferred over from a different sale.

Speaking of incorrect specs, can you check this one?

http://www.woot.com/offers/latitude-14-128gb-ssd-ultrabook-1?ref=cnt_wp_0_6

It’s $749.99 with the exact same specs as the $829.99 model, except it’s got an actually acceptable screen resolution and the other one has a terrible screen resolution, and the cheaper one also has a larger battery.

Looking at the other $749.99 ones, it seems the $829.99 one is the worst specced laptop, so it probably should be $729.99 or even less.

The more expensive laptop is NEW. It also has an integrated webcam and microphone.

Thanks for your post/inquiry!

On the Dell XPS 8700 it states that it has a “BD-ROM” – does that mean that it has a Blue Ray reader, but can burn CD / DVD’s or is it a BD-ROM only? No burn features at all?

This drive will play Blu-Rays and play and burn CD/DVD. I have a similar reader/drive in my 8300.
If you buy this computer, you need to make sure the company has you listed as the owner for support.https://www.onlineregister.com/dell/?c=US&l=EN

does the venue 8 pro come with office activation key?

We can’t guarantee that it does. It depends on a lot of factors such as whether the previous owner registered the software. That’s why we don’t mention it in our features.

Okay thanks for the honesty

Coupon no longer works. I believe this is a very similar model at Dell Outlets for the MSRP listed by Woot. http://outlet.us.dell.com/ARBOnlineSales/Online/SecondaryInventorySearch.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=dfh&cs=22&puid=133cfd7c

Is the XPS 8700 reconditioned or brand new? Can’t find it specified on the page, but might be missing it.

Thanks!

It’s new. If it shows a list price, it’s almost always new. Also, if you click through the sale, you’ll see the condition listed there below the price.

Hope that helps.
