It's hard to not be smitten with the Dell Venue 8 Pro. A full Windows 8.1 tablet with a sharp 8" IPS display that weighs less than a pound? Sounds sweet. It's only 0.35" thick and weighs less than a pound. Nice. It's just $299 and has a quad core Intel Bay Trail Atom CPU? Sold! Fortunately, it's as good as it sounds on paper, and the Dell Venue 8 Pro is a great pocketable Windows 8.1 touch screen tablet. It's perfect for those who need to run full Windows programs, use USB peripheral like printers, keyboards and 4G LTE dongles. If you want a tablet but need more than the iPad or an Android tablet can offer, the Dell Venue 8 Pro is pretty darned exciting. Mind you, it's not all perfect-- the optional pen for example is wonky.
