I think this is quite expensive. I thought it was £249 including the keyboard, which it isn't. £249 for quite low specs it's not worth it, just my opinion:

Specs:
Windows RT
Office Home & Student 2013 RT
Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 1.5GHz Dual Core processor with 32GB Flash Storage
10.1in HD Display (1366x768) with multi-touch
Warranty 1 yr Premium Phone Support with Rapid Collect & Return
System Weight: 0.63 kg

It is not really much better than a netbook so should be priced at £199 with keyboard.

Dual Core Processor!

Oh really? I assumed you had a problem with a perfectly capable dual core ARM CPU in a device running an ARM based OS, a device I've tested and seen that performance is no issue at all... Maybe I misconstrued your rather wordy and informative comment, but if I didn't, please explain what the issue is...

And the WinRT fire sale hits Dell...
Good price for what it is so I've heated it but I personally would spend a bit more for the Latitude 10

A bit more? About half as much again or more?

And it's used/refurbished

I have the surface RT and the Vaio duo11, I thought the vaio with it's i7 processor, 1080p touch screen and full windows 8 OS would be much better than the RT but I can't bring myself to part with the RT dues to it's super light form factor, totally fan-less/silent and amazing battery life. For all you gain in x86 compatibility you lose in battery life and form factor - RT tablets should be viewed more in the sense of an iPad or android tablet, ie. mainly for consumption (and so much more over the iPad) but it is not going to replace your desktop.

Seems like a good price to me. Its a shame they charge so much extra for the one with the keyboard, I mean what should a keyboards really cost? I'd say about £30 would be reasonable.

This is more of a dock than just a keyboard, has a second battery in it and additional usb ports and HDMI - wont help you with your spelling though

The compromise are the Intel Atom tablets. They run full windows 8 and are fanless. Like the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2 (which uses a Wacom stylus too). The Lenovo isn't cheap though.

Ah, thanks for clarifying.

I've fixed my spelling, I blame my phone!

Ive got the latitude slate running win7.

I hope they've learned from their mistakes, had loads of bother with the pen and the power supply and the random system failures.

Saying that, if they have, that seems a v good price.

Misleading picture.

massive Windows fan but Windows rt is dying...arm good chip used in right way but not in this case or with surface...hence price!

£249 versus £300 or right now the cheapest is £322; fractions not your strong point!

Windows RT on release was more expensive than Windows 8 due to including a version of Office. I think it has been significantly reduced now which is one reason why these are going cheap.
Intel already have an Atom that is competitive enough for a Tablet and the next version due towards the end of the year is 2 to 2.5 times faster at the same power consumption.
So why buy an RT tablet when you can buy a Windows 8 one that you can also connect to a monitor and use with a mouse/keyboard and run any Windows application?
RT has little chance and the joke is that Microsoft developed it to force Intel to make a decent tablet chip.

Not trying to argue, but the Dell is refurbished and I don't see any for £322 including VAT and their £22 delivery charge.

For that price, the keyboard would have to be another tablet. Hot for the unit itself though! Get it with the cover and use the motorola keyboard from yesterday

What's so great about an RT tablet that makes it better than an ipad or android tablet? Apart from running a version of word or other MS office apps that can be opened/edited on other tabs to some extent at the very least?
The lack of software, lower res screen and cpu that may well be superseded soon put me off. I think I'd rather make do with my tegra 3 tablets and ipad 4 for the moment while waiting for the next generation tablets to come out.

I was quoting including delivery and VAT; delivery is currently free as it is more often than not.
Dell refurbs are generally just customer returns or cancelled orders so close enough to New for most people.
There’s currently one at £322 (Win8 Pro, 64GB, 2 cell battery) and £330 (Win8 Pro, 64GB, 4 cell battery. Those are fully inclusive prices.

RT is a more efficient and powerful OS with proper multitasking, and it comes with real Microsoft Office.

Why are people moaning about the cpu? The s4 krait is a very capable chip, faster than the quad core tegra 3. Shame its not the pro though with the faster graphics

so cold I'm getting frost bite writing this.

BBBBRRRRRR!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think any standard wireless Windows compatible usb keyboard would work with this as its win rt so you don't need to bother with an overpriced dock.

Windows RT is not the way to go.

Starting to get good value but I'd wait until it can be had for under £300 with the obligatory keyboard dock. They aren't selling well at all.

i think id rather playbook over this ,

if it had full windows there would be no contest however

If you have Tegra 3 tablets and and iPad 4, what's the point of even considering an RT tablet or debating their usefulness? As you mentioned, you can get around the lack of Office limitations of the other platforms somewhat with alternative apps.

What I'd say, however, is that for someone looking for a tablet, who doesn't already have the likes of an iPad, this XPS 10 64GB at £299 could be a good deal, especially if the person uses Microsoft's cloud services and wants a tablet that was designed to work with services such as Office 365 and SkyDrive.

What many people don't get about the RT platform is that amongst Microsoft's other reasons for developing an OS running on an ARM processor, it is part of Microsoft's cloud services vision. Microsoft wanted to give buyers a tablet in the price range of the iPad that could encourage users to embrace the whole Microsoft private and public cloud platform. Part of what many people don't see is how Windows RT devices fit into Microsoft Enterprise licensing etc.

I've had an iPad 2 and 3 and each time ended up putting them on eBay after a month or so as I didn't find much use for them beyond playing, surfing the web and checking my email, the latter of which I'd rather do on my smartphone. I find Android tablets to be still a bit immature and they don't work well with Office Web Apps, which is a must for me. iPads work with OWAs but I'm not paying £399 for a 16GB tablet when a full Windows 8 tablet can be had for just a little more (or even a 64GB Dell Latitude 10 on the Dell Outlet for well under £400). The current price of the XPS 10 is pretty decent IMO at £299 for 64GB, which includes stylus and soft cover. A 64GB iPad is £559! There's no way what it has over the XPS 10 is worth another £260!

The bottom line is that no tablet meets all the needs of everyone so it's good to have an alternative option available.

great price for a good quality piece of hardware, but check out the reviews on the Dell's website, this rt version of Win8 doesn't sound up to much!

hmm it sounded good but ill wait for the 7inch version
