Deal Details

Hi Everyone! First Post after lurking for years...everyone seems to beat me to posting the new deals so never got a chance to post...lol

Anyways, I snagged one of those refurb Venue 8 Pros thank to you guys for $179 a few days ago and have been loving it.

Now was lurking for the stylus to become available and it is now on Dell's official site but with estimated delivery of mid March...forget that... cuz I just found this on ABT:

http://www.abt.com/product/77488/...=scfroogle

Dell Active Stylus For Dell Tablets (Windows) - 750AADH
$29.00
Estimated Delivery Feb 17-18th
Free Shipping
Plus no tax for me here in NC

Dont forget Discover 5% cashback for ABT.

Woohoo! Can't wait for it to get here (if it doesnt get cancelled)... hopefully this is an "updated" version that doesnt have the problems that plagued the first batch! bounce

Good find, but I'm going to wait and see if they actually have fixed this stylus based on how bad the initial reviews were.

I do not think this is the new one. Dell told me last night it will be released at the end of the month.

I'll let you know once i get it....fingers crossed

I figure if it doesn't work well or isnt the new one, I can probably get dell to swap it out for a new one anyways when it comes out...

plus theyre selling for like 60-80 bucks on ebay right now lol

Some people reported getting new ones from resellers a few days ago. I'm thinking this could be it.

B&H Photo has it @ $29.99 +3.99 Ship

They call it a "New Item, Available for pre-order", so this must be the New Model. (750AADH - same Model # as Abt)
& the only (2) Vendors that show up on search of that Model #.

btw, buying from (Snowbound) NC also & thanks for the Discover 5% reminder.

They won't swap it unless you bought it directly from them. There are a few posts about people spending an hour on the phone with them trying to get it done. They just say to return it from where you purchased it.

$28 with FS
Shoprunner 2-day eligible (free returns), that sealed it for me.

Catherine: Hello. My name is Catherine and my extension is 87970. I’ll be happy to help you. Please give me a second to check on your question.
Me: http://www.macmall.com/p/Dell-Han...dp.iehcbee
I just purchased that. Is that the new fixed model or the old one?
Catherine: This is brand new.
Me: But which model is it?
Dell just released a new one a few weeks ago because the original was defective
Catherine: This is the latest version that dell recently released.
Me: Great, thanks!
Can you tell me when you received the shipment?
Catherine: The ETa that we have is last week of February. No exact date yet.
Me: Awesome
Thanks again



And for people buying from ABT, it looks like it's the new one:
