The 2013 Dell Venue 8 Pro was one of the first 8 inch Windows 8.1 tablets to feature digital pen support. It was priced at $299 and up, but over the past few years Dell has offered models for as little as $199.

Now Dell is giving its 8 inch tablet a major overhaul… and charging about twice as much money. The new Dell Venue 8 Pro (64GB) is now available for $399 and up, and features twice the memory and storage, a full HD display, a more powerful processor, and a Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C port.


The Dell website suggests the starting price is $449, but that’s how much you’ll pay for a model with Windows 10 Pro. You can save $50 by opting for Windows 10 Home when customizing your order. Note that in both cases, you get the 64-bit version of Windows, which is a bump from the 32-bit software that came with the older model.

Other improved specs include:

  • 1920 x 1200 pixel display (up from 1280 x 800)
  • Intel Atom z5-Z8500 processor (up from Atom Z3740)
  • 4GB RAM (up from 2GB)
  • 64GB of storage (up from 32GB)
  • NFC support

Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 5MP rear and 2MP front cameras, and a 19.5 Whr battery.

If you’re looking for a cheaper option, Dell also offers models with 2GB of RAM, 1280 x 800 pixel displays, and 32GB to 64GB of storage for $299 and up.

Optional accessories include keyboards, docking stations, and active pens, but none of those are included in the base price of the tablet.
