SEVIN KROFF: Sad that these tablets are still the best Windows tablets out there (8 inch)
xX Alpha Caillou Xx: Ive had bad history with android so should i go for Apple or Windows
Brett Watters: The problem with the Dell which isn't mentioned is the placement of the Windows button. This is key is any Windows 8 tablet. Standard placement is on the front panel under the screen. It is then easy to hit. On the Dell it is a button on the top -- not easily reachable. This means app switching, getting to the start screen, etc. are all clunky and slow. I tried a Dell and an Acer in a store and it was an immediate issue.
There are no a number of $99 8" tablets (with only 1GB of RAM) and a number of $139 to $199 tables with the 2GB. WinBook, Acer, HP Stream, etc. WinBook has an HDMI, micro USB 2, and a full-sized USB 3 port.
cory bostic: I love my dell venue 8 pro but like Lisa said not too great running games
electropentatonic: Great review.

FibblesGaming: hi lisa im looking for a windows 8 tablet that can run skyrim any suggestions?
Sorrow54: i've watched so many reviews now. personally i think im 100 % sure the dell venue 8 is my kind of tablet.
MrEtherlord: Not a gaming tablets? So Android and iOS offer better quality games than HoMM 5, FarCry 2 or Elder Scrolls? I don't think so.
Pasti II: Dell : - no gps - no hdmi - Z3740D (limited memory bandwith to 6,400 mb/s)
Toshiba encore is pro and the best: - Z3740 (memory bandwith up 17,066.66 mb/s ) - More resistant - Gps - Micro HDMI (use as desktop , etc ) - Micro sd 64gb
Sreten Jovanovic: Lenovo Miix 2 8 can charge via usb while using is for something else, like external hdd of flash drive, you just need otg cable and usb hub, dell can also, but with some modifications which are very complicated. Lenovo is just straight foward thing. That's why i chose lenovo.
Anime Content: no comments?
michael musnick: I bought the Lenovo miix2 and after 9 days the on/off switch wouldn't work. Has anyone else had this problem?
