    On the Dell site, select the 32G model. Once selected you have the option of specifying you want 64G. I ordered the 64G model just the other day. Dell was having a pre-Black Friday sale and got the 64G tablet, Folio and stylus for $349, same price that TigerDirect is selling the tablet alone for in the link that whs posted. I also got free 2-day shipping and 1 yr Accidental Damage Warranty.

    4 Windows 7 Pro Sp1- 4 Win 8 Pro, 1- xp pro sp3


    I compared the 128gig bit surface pro with the dell vend 11 pro- i5 processor- 4 gigs ram
    the accessories for the
    the venue pro is $849.90
    surface pro $999
    keyboard- same price on both- $129
    the surface comes with the stylus- the venue does not- it is $29.99
    this is what it is now but when I first looked at it- the original price was higher
    there was a $100 difference between them- surface pro being less money

    Dell came down in price- Microsoft did not

    I still want to see more reviews on the dell one but there are none out there yet
    Of course now the dell is $119 cheaper but then again I want to see how they face each ohter

    I just bought one from Dell for $299. It came with the Tablet folio (value $40) and some cash back gift card (whatever that is). And I have a question. See here:

    I paid $349 shipped for the 64gb V8Pro from Newegg. This W8 touch is all new to me, I do have a little experience with touch from my SG3 and Kindle HD. I play around with Android, I rooted the SG3, but this W8 touch is knocking my socks off. I have a feeling the Kindle is ebay bound.

    I just found out that the Venus 8 Pro does not have GPS. If you need/want GPS, buy this Lenovo Miix 2 8. It is practically the same at the same price.

    There is also a Toshiba which is similar but costs a bit more money..
