Found 11th Jan 2014
This is a good deal if you're looking for a Windows RT tablet, especially with the VIP discount available for employees of some companies & students.

Details of VIP scheme can be found at dell.com/lea…age

Be aware that this is Windows RT, and not full Windows 8, and can only run apps from the Windows Store. However you get most stuff you need as part of the operating system, including Office 2013 RT.

I don't know what happened to the get deal link from HUKD, but the one I used was
dell.com/uk/…004

am not believe Dell performance.... overall ..Dell fail in laptops.... quality wise poor

Unable to find this item on their web site.

Link doesn't take you to a product?

The new link is in the description, not sure you can use the 10% VIP code with the purchase as it's not shown in the VIP offer? I tried to add the code but it doesn't accept it? Seems a good price to me though....

who is looking to buy RT tablet these days?

Ok I see. Yeah it looks pretty good, not sure if you don't need Windows 8 RT if its worth buying as its not that powerful. If you do want to use the functionality of Windows 8 RT, like office you need keyboard, while there dock gives you around 18 hrs of batter life and HDMI out etc. it costs more then the tablet!

Thanks very much

Good for anyone wanting basic web browsing functionality. Everyone else though, it's RT, so steer well clear.

Unless ofcourse you enjoy having no apps, a crippled stock web browser in IE, and poor overall performance and user experience in the apps that actually are available in the store.

Firefox and VLC are on the way, that helps a lot.

Windows RT isn't full Windows, but it was never meant to be. It does stack up well compared to like-for-like products (iPad, Galaxy Tab 3) though.

RT is good for most casual people

So, this or a Latitude 10 tablet (with pen input) for £100 more?

Ever go cheap (this) or get a Bay Trail.

The quad core atoms in the Venue 8 Pro, or the Asus T100 are really surprising.

Maybe go with the HP OMNI 10 with MS Office free

Can highly recommend it


Ha Ha this is hilarious - Have you seen the price of the mobile keyboard dock £200+ What a joke no wonder no one buys these things. Cant see why you would take this over a surface if you want RT? (Except price but then you trade that off for MS build quality). If you want one like this get the Asus T100 with full windows at around £299 a much better buy IMHO

1) It's a Dell
2) I know exactly what kind of trash they throw inside their desktop PC's.
3) I really wouldn't expect a masterpiece of engineering here
4) Not hot.

Ha ha ha, class. I don't like dell myself for reason #1 but if your not after a dock I cant help but see SOME value here, I cant find anything close to £ 161.00 TBH

That's because anything else more expensive is going to be for a reason People need to ask how they're getting a 10" tablet for about less than a lot of 7" ones cost...

That's because anything else more expensive is going to be for a reason.



OR, they're overpriced! I see your point but after owning a surface 2 before the kickstand broke (which cannot be fixed, the unit has to be totally replaced) I've lost some faith in even the most expensive units myself.

Amazing price for this and comes with Microsoft Office. Would be great for a student. However the operating system is garbage. Keyboard and build in SD card slot. HOT!

A kickstand breaking wasn't much to do with the actual tablet though For poor quality components with vastly inflated prices : see Apple.

You don't get the keyboard.

Dell want £199.19 extra for that!

Nothing wrong with RT if it suits your requirements ie you just want something simple, virus free, etc. If it wasn't for the primitive screen resolution I'd get one of these at this price.

Yup, I don't get - er.. why people don't get that. Lack of brains I suspect.

I gave a Surface RT to my kid, like you would an iPad. He can not only do iPad'esque YouTube, Facebook, surfing etc
But he can also do schoolwork with Office. All virus free, safe, self updating. That's the beauty of RT.

Still, there is no understanding the great unwashed I suppose.

The only time i will invest in any MS devices is when they show a little support for them, releasing a phone or a tablet into the wild then ignoring them is just not the way people think of phones and tablets, send out some updates like android does to increase the usability and improve the speed of the device and fix a few bugs, damn anything to show that MS is actually interested and not going to stop producing or supporting the software once it is out there.
At the moment MS is failing in the support of their devices i believe, they have created the best phone and the best tablet and they just leave them as they were when first purchased bugs and all. No intention of improving them?

Damn apple supply a new OS every year, and android is updating their software almost monthly...and where is MS in all of this, they have released a rumour, nothing more that, they will be updating the software on some of the phones in 2014, sometime in 2014 we dont know if it will be the beginning middle or end, for any other company most people would be wondering if they were going under.

The only MS tablet worth buying at the moment is the pro as that is easily configured and hacked. RT is lacking in support mainly via apps as the market does not see MS investing in their device why should they.

This device at this price is great for browsing and the odd thing here and there, it does what it says on the time and even then not very well. I would rather purchase a cheap £100 tablet and wait for MS to invest and improve their devices.

Why no 3G/4G? It should at least be an option. Am I missing the option to add it?

Great amount of tablet for the price, if you need office for study like I do (uni student) these are perfect.
Dock is available cheap here, gives it a huge battery life and adds keyboard and track pad alongside extra ports.

Very tempting, must resist lol, plenty of updates have been released. including to 8.1 so don't know what flunkitty is getting at there

seems like microsoft are ready to kill off windows RT check it out here

Dell used to do this tablet as the XPS 10 with keyboard dock for £249, so no idea why they have separated them out like this and charged a small fortune. I had a couple of XPS 10s but found the keyboard dock to be flaky with the connection not always working properly, and ultimately Windows RT wasn't for me because of some basic support missing (e.g. proper Dropbox support with offline sync).

I was tempted, but not found any good reviews on the web.

I wont be buying one of these, reviews aren't great and it's running RT; the only RT for me is Russia Today..

For what its worth - £150 for the 32gb version, no keyboard, grade A at Cex (online & a few in stores)

I thought the reviews were generally favourable.

Remember these reviews are all about a year old when the tablet was around £500.

I've never seen the 64GB with a keyboard for £249 - you should have posted a deal for that. If you mean THIS then the 64GB with keyboard was £369.

There's a post before that says Microsoft hasn't supported their tablets... what a load of bull. They have come out with updates nearly every month since launch.

Microsoft has released major updates for free on a regular basis, so I would research what you say before stating inaccuracies. Nokia (Windows) phones have gone from code Amber to code Black base as an example of a very recent upgrade. Nokia Drive has gone thru a major update recently and now the routes change colour the more congested they are as another example.

Yep, should also add MS have said they will keep its software up to date from a security perspective till 1/10/2023, I wonder how long Apple will support their iPads etc till . How many ios versions did the iPad 1 get?

I get that, but to be honest I haven't posted Windows RT deals at all as people don't seem to like them, and I can see why. The complete bundle was at £249 before, though it may have been the 32GB but still a good price if that's what you want.

People don't like RT but if you can live with its restrictions it is a breath of fresh air in terms of simplicity. You don't have to download a myriad of buggy drivers (either it's on the list of class drivers or it's not) and resetting to a clean machine is a doddle. There is near to zero chance of a virus or malware which again can't be said of most Windows setups.
