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.

$599 is for WinRT device, that as far as universality is concerned looks pale compared to even Android devices now.
x86 stars with $799 for Atom (= netbook class performance). The proper laptop class HW runs $1299.
These prices would look good if the figure was $299, $599, $799.
