In the world of Windows devices, there is usually an ongoing promotion of sorts to let you dive in into the experience headfirst, while saving a bit of your hard-earned cash. The latest offer comes directly from the Microsoft Store and offers up the opportunity to grab Dell’s XPS 12 2-in-1 Ultrabook convertible, along with a free Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet with 32 GB of storage.

Dell’s XPS 12 is an excellent Windows 8 machine and a great way to jump into the modern experience if you have been holding out. As the name hints, the unit features a 12.5-inch screen and is part of Dell’s premium XPS line of machines. The 12.5-inch screen can be a bit small for some, but with the integrated DisplayPort and available USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Dual Video Docking Station – you can always plug into a larger display when you need to get some intense work done.

The two configurations available from the Microsoft Store include an Intel Core i5 unit with 4 GB of RAM and a 128 GB SSD for $1,099 or an Intel Core i7 unit with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD for $1,699. Both units claim to bring in over 8.5 hours of battery life and are excellent companions for the student or mobile professional.

The free Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet is an Intel Atom Quad-Core Windows 8.1 machine that includes an 8-inch 1280 x 800 HD IPS display, 2 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of solid-state storage. The Venue 8 Pro is one of my personal favorite tablets and is sure to please, even if you had to pay the $249.99 price tag.
