$120 Wintel PCs
rick merritt   9/4/2014 12:45:44 AM
Without the $30+ Windows tax and with a Atom based-x86 we are really seeing some inexpensive systems. I'd love to see some performance specs on how they far against Android/ARM tabs.

At this stage, M'soft like Google sees more value in reselling eyeballs on Bing than the upfront $30+ royalty, though it must miss the glory days of its once high monopoly pricing.

As for Intel, can it make a living selling these if they replace notebooks and desktops?

As for Wintel tabs, is it too late? Is this an Android/ARM market?
