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

Not sure if Dell would actually change the Model number but you are correct.
55N1N was always the Manufacture part number and 750AADH was always the Dell Part number.

"I just received a shipping notification for a dell active stylus after initially getting an email that they would not be in stock until March 28th. Anyone else get a shipping notification? I am hoping it's the revised version.

It appears to be the new one, part number 55n1n"

Just spoke with a rep at Abt. I asked if he had access to the box to see if it was Rev 00 or Rev 01, he said no, but he took a couple minutes to find out and confirmed with me that it is Rev 01.

I guess I was one of the last orders, I placed my order 10 minutes ago, and now the item says it's backordered. I guess I'll find out when I get it next week!

EDIT: nvm, I'm on backorder too. 7-10 days. Oh well.

Do you mean vs the $2 capacitive styli?

Because those ones suck. They emulate a finger, the tablet can't tell a difference.

This is an ACTIVE stylus. The tablet knows whether you're touching it with the stylus or with your finger. It's also far more precise than a capacitive stylus or finger.

With an active stylus you can rest your hand on the screen while you write with the pen, like you would on real paper. Without an active stylus you can't do that.

$27.99 from MacMall with 2-day ShopRunner shipping or $33.88 from Dell after 10% off and overnight shipping...

Both are probably shipping around the same timeframe maybe?

Is the ~$6 price increase worth it for any warranty-related issues?

It was about 4 dollars or so cheaper than dell itself. But the main reason for the post was because it had been pulled from Dell and had been unavailable for over a month.

This was one of the first stores with the "updated" version back in stock (most other stores showing out of stock and dell showing estimated ship date of midMarch) which hopefully is not plagued with the problems of the original pen..
