Dell continued where it stopped last fall, as the company just released a new version of its Venue 8 Pro 5000 tablet. The new 2016 edition comes with some noticeable additions and improvements, compared to previous models from this series, which makes this tablet a more intriguing purchase.

The new Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 now has more ‘pro’ specs, which makes this tablet suitable for all kinds of users, from regular home users, to business users. And the combination of pretty good specs and relatively affordable price is the strongest side of this Windows 10 tablet.

Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 (2016) Features and Improvements

Dell doubled some aspects of 2016’s version of Venue 8 Pro 5000 tablet, compared to the previous model. The device is now powered by 2.24 GHz Intel Atom Z8500 (instead of older 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z3740), and has 4 GB of RAM (instead of 2GB). The screen also went from HD (1280 x 800) to Full HD (1920 x 1200). There’s also a small front camera improvement, and it now comes with 64GB of eMMC storage.

Dell kept its propensity to Thunderbolt ports in Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000, as the device comes with a Thunderbolt 3/USB-C port on board. Another welcomed improvement is the addition of the SIM card, so the device is now fully LTE-supported.

Here’s the full list of Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 specifications:

  • OS: Windows 10 Home or Pro 64-bit
  • Processor: 2.24 GHz Intel Atom Z8500
  • Display: Full HD (1920 x 1200)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Front camera: 2MP
  • Rear camera: 5MP
  • Ports: Thunderbolt Type-C
  • Storage: 64GB eMMC
  • SIM: Yes, micro SIM
  • NFC: Yes

There’s also an optional active pen for drawing and taking notes, but it doesn’t come bundled with the device, so you’ll have to pay additional $40 to get this accessory.

Dell Venue 8 Pro 5000 is currently on sale, and you can buy it for $499. And if you choose the version that comes with pre-installed Windows 10 Home, you can drop the price to $399. The price of the newest Venue 8 Pro 5000 model is of course higher than its predecessor, but if you take a consider specs and performance you’re getting for the price, 2016’s Dell Venue 8 Pro 500 definitely wins.
