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

Hmm.. MacMall also has the Venue 8 Pro keyboard (which includes the bluetooth keyboard and a case for the tablet, keyboard, and stylus) for $80 ... tempting.

Quote from petard View Post :
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.
Plus pressure sensitivity. Btw you seem rather defensive.

$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?
Went with MacMall.

My order I placed at 9:08 am PST was at Order Status: Order Processed & Moving To Shipping Department, but half an hour ago I got an email saying my order is on back order. I wonder if paying with Paypal got me on back order because of the note I saw on the order email.

"Please note: Customers using Paypal will experience a 24 hour delay in processing their order (including in-store pickups)."

Or if they really just don't have the stock yet.

Thank you for contacting Abt.



I have taken a look at the status of your order and do apologize we do not currently have this unit in stock. Using PayPal did not contribute to the item being on backorder. I have contacted our manufacturers rep and are currently awaiting a response. As soon as I have an update I will follow up with you again.

Got a Venue Pro 8 last night, like it so far. Showed to my friend, they were all amazed that it's a full Windows computer.
But wish to have an active stylus to test One Note.

Very lucky! Have you been able to use it enough to give an opinion about it?



I replied to the last ABT email asking to upgrading my shipping because it became back ordered. Went from standard to 3 day. Better than nothing, just gotta wait till they get more stock in.
