I'm sure we can all agree that we want a Windows 8 Tablet more than we want anything else.... I mean... I literally can't wait. I've seen the RC run on some Windows 7 Tablets and it's pretty incredible. However... the Windows 7 Tablet costs about $1000.
If Windows 8 Tablets Release and they aren't priced between $250-$600... I will probably get an Ipad. I also think at the higher pricepoint... the tablets will fail at the consumer level. Mfg's really need to start hinting at prices and if it's higher than current tablet Market they really need to justify why it's going to be worth it. I'll be kinda upset at the fact that I'm holding off on my purchases only to find that they're priced like Mac Book Pros.

I think this is specifically why MS is now developing for ARM. An ARM based tablet will be able to come in at iPad like prices. The only Intel tabs that may come close to the $600 mark are low end Atom based tabs, and that experience may not be that great.

I agree that an x86 at ARM prices would be a game changer, but there would have to be compromises elsewhere to get there. Be it a crappy screen, cheap build, low ram, or something else.

well, u guys might be happy to know the mid-high range acer 700 is looking to be priced at 799, which means we will probably see cheaper options as well
there are laptops/ultrabooks selling at 399 and they just need to add a touch panel to that (and they are i7 devices as well) so i don't think getting a low priced tablet would be much of an issue
