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.

A win?

If I do the math for 500 euros per table, I can easily reach an amount of several thousands euros, given the size of both places I've mentioned.

For something that does not do more that show a glorified version of a paper menu. You cannot even access the Internet.

Then I think how many people try to survive with their low incomes, while wannabe trendy places do this kind of thing.

I don't get it.

As zlynx has pointed out, if the use of a tablet is tied into the ordering system and increases efficiency to the point that the restaurant can fit just one more cover per table, per day, it will pay for itself inside a month.
