While we just placed an order for the Lenovo ThinkPad 8, there’s another 8-inch Windows tablet that has been very popular. It’s the Dell Venue 8 Pro. There’s a really good deal on it right now. You can grab the 32 GB version for $199.99 and the 64 GB version for $249.99. What’s the catch? You have to live near a Micro Center store in the U.S. because the deal is only available in-store.

The Dell Venue 8 Pro feels solid. It’s not too heavy, relatively thin and easy to handle in one hand. The display is quite good, too. It has great viewing angles and suitable color rendition. For $199 or $249, it’s a really good deal. Check out our hands-on and impressions of the Venue 8 Pro for more details.
The deal works in-store only. The good news is that you can order it online and pick it up at the store. You can even choose to pay at the store if you want. Your tablet must be picked up within three calendar days. Once that time has expired, it will automatically be returned and your credit card will not be charged. Micro Center has 23 store locations in the U.S.
