    Those $99 tablets are only for the 1st 100 orders. Good luck with that and MS has not said what time the deal starts. Even if it's $199 it's still a good deal because it's a new tablet and the lowest it's been is $220 on Amazon and they are now sold out and that was with a price increase to $269.

    I'll probably snag one even at $199 because I ordered one from Wally World for $269 plus tax. I only purchased one because American Express has a $20 rewards refunded to your account for purchasing $79 or more from Walmart.com

    It wasn't long ago that I spent $200 on a first-gen Kindle Fire, and the Venue 8 Pro is such a superior, more versatile device in every way that it's hard to believe how quickly things have advanced in the past couple years.

    When you take into consideration the mouse lag issues plaguing 8.1, that statement is flat-out false.

    Not necessarily. Look at the evolution of Vista to Win 7...

    That only affected a handful of titles, and has to do with out Win8.1 does mouse movement. MS already has a fix.

    When we aren't singling out one particular issue.. well.. HARDOCP - Conclusion - Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review

    If you guys are so interested in the $99 Dell Venue 8 Pro, I'll go line up outside the Microsoft Store near my house on Monday morning and pick one up, then do a review on here or something.

    What is causing the mouse lag? I have a m6600 and when I was using windows 8, the trackpad felt "off" for some unknown reason. I could not put my finger on what was "off" so I switched back to windows 7

    [Shrug] Windows 7 will be supported until 2020, and maybe even longer. By that time, if they do not offer a decent OS, I will have moved on. I don't have to use a Microsoft OS.

    My sentiments regarding Windows 8.1 and what MS tried to pull can best be described by this:
