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.

Until a good tablet comes down to the pricing of a net-book I don't see the need to change over.


Depends on your use cases I guess. For example, if you can surf the web on a netbook while lying on your back or sitting on the crapper, then you are most certainly a better man than I ;)

Sorry then, I must be a better man than you because I do both things with my net-books.

Worse, I can even walk and read a novel on my machines at the same time.
