Question about Dell Venue 8 Pro
      #45727 - 12/03/13 11:05 AM

I'm technologically illiterate, so any help is greatly appreciated.

I found a good deal on the Dell Venue 8 Pro and unfortunately wasn't able to get the 64 GB version. I saw on your review and a few other reviews that you only have around 9 or 10 GB of free hard drive space with the OS and Office installed.

My question is, does the Venue 8 Pro contain any "bloatware" programs that can be removed to free up space? Also, is it possible to uninstall portions of the operating system that you don't need (e.g. I think my brothers Windows 8 laptop came with a weather app, which I wouldn't need)?

Thanks again for your help.

Hey, you figured out how to use both red and black for your post's fonts, you're not technologically illiterate There's really no bloat per se on the Venue 8 Pro-- Dell knows it doesn't have the space or horsepower for lots of junk and they keep it pretty clean. I personally removed the anti-virus trial and went with the built in Microsoft Security Essentials and firewall. That won't gain you much space, but MS' product is easier on the CPU.
