If you are just waking up and getting to work, here’s what you missed: Lenovo stated that Windows 8 tablets will cost around $600 to $700, and that Windows RT tablets will cost $200 to $300 less. According to that, Windows RT devices could cost as little as $300. That’s a fantastically interesting price-point.
Given that we have heard rumors that Microsoft’s Surface tablets will retail anywhere from $200 to $1,000 for their base configuration, this new information is calming for Windows 8 fans – at the stated rates, Windows RT and 8 tablets have the potential to be competitive with other market players, such as Apple’s iPad, and the various Android tablets.
