Dell XPS 10 Deal

Deal Alert: Dell XPS 10 Windows RT tablet now $299

If you've been on the fence looking for a deal on a Windows 8 tablet, Dell may have just what you're looking for. The price for the Dell XPS 10 Windows 8 RT tablet has been slashed from $449.99 to $299.99.

The 10.1" tablet comes with a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 32GB of memory storage, 2MP front facing camera and a 5MP rear facing camera. You can upgrade the memory to 64GB (add $50) and add a keyboard dock (now only $100) when you customize your purchase. However, Dell is offering the XPS 10 bundled with the keyboard dock for $349. Bump the memory on the bundle to 64GB and you're at $399 which is still a heck of a deal.

We aren't sure how long this deal will last but you can find all the details on the Dell XPS 10 here at the Dell website.

Thanks, everyone, for the tips!

Deal Alert: Dell XPS 10 Windows RT tablet now $299


Dell on the brink of a buyout does not encourages me to want to buy this even if it is a great deal.

What difference does that make? It's not like you won't get support.
What prevents me is waiting for Haswell.

That's what they all say.  I'm waiting for this or that.  Once this or that is released.  Then they change their minds to wait for the new and upcoming this or that. 
I would presume for those looking for an RT device this is a great price and they'll jump on it - now.

What about hardware support? If those money hungry investors take over who knows what they will do with older hardware and with most being hostile towards anything Microsoft support for a weak selling OS could be axed anytime. Not a good purchasing choice at this time.

Or support period. There's more to buying a product beside software update. And Dell doesn't have the best track record when it comes to tablets. Sooo, no

Michael Dell's group is just one of several parties who are vying  for Dell. At least one of those groups is looking to squeeze the cash out of Dell and leave a rotting corpse.

I've never had the Dell XPS, but the Surdace RT was very good. The build felt nice and it had a kick stand. The volume recently got fixed and the camera isn't the greatest. So, if you plan on buying a tablet with intent to take decent pictures. The Surface wouldn't be my pick.

People who take pictures with a tablet look like fools, IMO.
The camera is just there for things like Skype.

I looked at this tablet (among others) and went with the Surface RT because of how the Surface feels and looks.  However, at this price I probably would have bought the Dell.

Built quality is better of the Surface RT. But for that price, I think Dell is a better deal, as you can get double the memory and better cameras for $250 less than a Surface, with keyboard bundled.

oh wow... what a useful reply /s
please next time just shut up and dont give retarded answers. really... if you cant help that person why you even give the stupid "bing, google is your friend" crap?... im amazed about retarded people like you.  
k thx bye

great deal. I think i will get it after a month or two.. Got a ASUS vivotab RT.. and after third boot, it is being RMAed. Doesnt boot... something corrupt. I dont know how stable windows RT it.
But this doesnt have NFC.. i think with the current phones having NFC, i think these should have NFC for document transfer.

To put it in perspective, the thing starts at £349 ($543.92) here in the UK.  Meh, will carry on using the iPad with Splashtop methinks.

I would buy it but only really for using the internet maybe some games. Would be nice to have around. Hey wpcentral good looks. I like when you show us good deals. Keep it up!

Own this tablet and its a solid device. KB dock is especially nice since it doubles the battery life. My only gripe is too much bezel...but its a good tablet and plays all games/apps smooth. At $299 its a steal.

i picked one up refurbished for 214 dollars including tax. it is a good tablet, and i love that hulu and amazon instant video work right out of the box. i may pick up the keyboard dock now, if the price for it as an accesory has gone down. i wanted to make sure i liked it as a tablet first.

This is a deal certainly.  I would rather have the Surface RT, but for what I want, it would be $300 more.... the keyboard with 64GB memory ($399 for the XPS, it would be $699 for the Surface).  I have a laptop that I have upgraded to WIndows 8 Pro, and other than Office 2010, I haven't really put any other Desktop applications on it yet.  So I am basically using it like a RT machine.  The other thing it is missing is touch.
I think Microsoft should have waiting to release RT a year after Windows 8 was released.  The big downside was the Apps.  It still is, but it is becoming less of an issue. 

The question is whether anyone is selling 10" tablets......As many found out a 7" form factor is more suited for many travel and couch potato scenarios

It's different for different people and there is a market obviously for 10' tablets.  I myself have had a 10' and a 7' tablets and do love the 7' inch form factor much better as it's simply easier to handle.  But if you're wanting more a netbook style then yes by all means go with 10' that comes with a dock.  One thing I've always liked about the ASUS Transformer.  I would prefer the Surface RT over this but can't come to terms on wanting it for the price.

I'm all over this deal. There are enough apps in the market to justify this for my needs. I have got to get rid of this Nexus 7 crap.

I ordered my wife one of the refurbished 32 GB for $200, for Mother's Day. Glad I held off on the keyboard, I'll pick that up for her now.

Me too.  But then again I really want a Surface because I trust MS support over other OEM's.  Look how much they have updated the current models.   

Man I want to try and justify a purchase but I just can't. I want to upgrade my laptop to a hybrid once haswell comes out and im also holding off for a Nokia tablet if they ever decide they're going to make one.
But I really want an tablet for easy mobility but I feel better hardware is on its way soon. If they can get this down to $200 it'll be hard to turn down. I don't see that happening soon though, so ill just wait for better hardware regardless of price(within reason)

"We aren't sure how long this deal will last"
Probably until they sell out of their dead inventory and can discontinue the product.

32GB Tablet + keyboard dock is coming up as $399 for me.
Tried going through the "Dell Advantage" program, and there's even less of a deal ($440 for the bundle). Doesn't seem like much of an advantage.

Your article is totally a lie! The tablet is $299, add a case, its $39 more, with keyboard dock bundle  its another $100, The case is not included in the bundle. And upgrade to 64 GB, even more. They just keep adding more charges.And they dont give no-interest financing unless you spend over $600, so you must pay an actual $450 in one payment to get this so-called deal. Waste of time!!!! I used to trust Microsoft. I really wanted this tablet, am really disappointed!

Anyone know how the snapdragon s4 in this compares to the tegra 3 in surface RT performance and battery wise?

Just read a review that says the tablet battery runs out hours before the keyboard, and the keyboard battery does not fuel the tablet.
