So I used the Dell venue 8 pro through out my undergrad and loved it . I liked it's size, simplicity, atom processor. The only thing I didn't like is that I ran out of storage space and of course the pen never really worked. I mean it was unusable to say the least. need a very similar set up but with more storage (SD card never worked when saving one note documents) and a functioning pen. If there is a successor to the venue 8 pro that would be great because I still have the keyboard and case. General Questions. 1. What is your budget? Cheapest. Hopefully under $250 2.
