Dell XPS 10 tablet with Windows RT price dropped to $300

In case you really want to buy a Windows RT tablet for some reason, then here's a deal you should probably check out. The DELL XPS 10 has just been treated to a significant price drop and can be bought for as low as $300 directly from its maker. That's $150 less than what the device was priced at until recently, and $200 less than what the Microsoft Surface RT tablet currently costs.

What you get for your money is a tablet with a 10.1-inch, 1366 by 768 pixel display, powered by a dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor clocked at 1.5GHz. There's a 5-megapixel auto-focus on the back of the DELL XPS 10, and a 2-megapixel front-facing one makes video calls possible. On-board storage is limited to 32GB, but extra gigs can be added by popping in a microSD card. The battery of the slate is rated for 10 and a half hours of continuous use. 

The better-equipped variants of the DELL XPS 10 are on sale as well, with a model offering 64GB of storage, 4G LTE connectivity (via AT&T), GPS, and a hardware keyboard dock priced at $500. If keyboard dock and its extra battery juice is all you need, then you can pair it with the basic XPS 10 model for $350. 

But before you hit that "Add to Cart" button, allow us to remind you that Windows RT is very limited when it comes to software availability. That's because it won't run legacy Windows applications, meaning that only Windows RT apps distributed through the Windows Marketplace can be used on the device. Furhermore, Windows RT tablets aren't doing particularly well on the market and analysts don't think they'll be around for much longer. But if none of that bothers you, then feel free to visit DELL's online store by following the source link below.

Are you from a parallel universe or is this your habit to troll on every article?

Go and do your research before posting crap here.

Dude what's the problem?
I read somewhere that Dell is for Sale...
They declared some sort of bankruptcy.

Looking at your avatar I would say you are the troll.

Hey funnyguy2, you only make stupid remarks. Isn't that the same remark you made about Sharp in the last article. Grow up you Inbred Moron!

First of all dell is not forsale. Micheal Dell is trying to take the company Private so he doesn't have to deal with the stockholders. He beleives that this will give him the flexabily to make the company great.

I'd buy it for $99....but for $300? You fkin kidding me?

Looks like Dell is just disposing their RT stocks out without the intention of making profits whatsoever

This is the first indication that RT will never make it thru 2014
