Windows "Asus has a trio of Windows 8 tablets on deck for the holidays, but the pricing is so high - $599 to $1299 for a hybrid - that it's going to be nearly impossible to compete in the marketplace. We were leaked Asus' holiday roadmap and the slide below tells the tale." If this is for real, Windows 8 is screwed in the tablet space. Nobody is going to buy a Windows tablet at prices higher than the iPad.

Same thing here.

My little Asus with 8GB RAM, 500 GB HD, AMD Brazos dual core with RADEON 6320 costed me 300 euros. It was being sold in Amazon Germany with GNU/Linux pre-installed.

Plus it has a battery time of around 6 hours.

Why should I pay the double for a tablet that offers less?
