Expert review by : Elias Plastiras (pcworld.co.nz)

Dell Venue 8 Pro Windows 8.1 tablet

 

The all-black Dell Venue 8 Pro has one of the slimmest profiles of all the Windows 8-based tablets we've seen to date, and the most streamlined aesthetics. It's a product that's aimed at businesses as much as regular consumers and students.

Compact size ; Textured back ; MicroSD card slot

No Micro-HDMI ; A little sluggish at times ; Some noticeable backlight bleeding

The Dell Venue 8 is a nifty little Windows 8.1 tablet device that can fit into the palm of your hand thanks to its 8in screen and thin body. It's a decent performer for most tasks, but can struggle a little with CPU-intensive Web streaming.
