quote: In a sense the netbook may survive -- or even thrive -- in a way, in a new, pricier package...recent commentary hints that ARM Windows 8 hybrid tablets may be priced at around $500 USD, while Intel-powered units will hit somewhere in the $600-$700 bracket.
quote: On the other hand, the kind of people who can't afford to spend more than $250 or $300 on a computer would probably be able to manage just fine with a Surface RT. If the rumored $200 price is for real, and if tablet and keyboard cover manage to land at around the same price as a traditional netbook...well, maybe that, right there, is the reason Acer got so upset at Microsoft
quote: Poor choice of wording on "the kind of people"-Do you mean poor people are a certain kind of people? I'm sure you did not mean to sound like an elitist, but it came off that way.
quote: Hmm, I just inserted tablet where you were referring to netbooks and the statement still works.
