Oh yes there are plenty of catches to the $99 Dell Venue 8 Pro deal, a Windows 8.1 tablet that usually sells for $299. But that doesn't mean you won't be able to cash in.
The key restraint is availability. Microsoft says it will make 20 Dell Venue 8's available at its stores on Monday for $99 each. After that the price jumps to $199 (still a deal) for the rest of the day or until the quantities run out.
A similar deal will be available at Microsoft's online store that starts with 100 Dell Venue 8's for the $99 price.
Microsoft's 12 days of deals promo, that promises a unique deal each day, starts on Monday.
