LXer: Wintel tablets may cost $600+ because Microsoft and Intel are unwilling to take a pay cut

Published at LXer:

Have you ever wondered why your PC is so expensive? Well, a good portion of that cash goes straight into the pockets of Intel for its processors and Microsoft for Windows. Unfortunately, while the market has seen that the days of expensive PCs are over, executives at Microsoft and Intel may fight to retain high PC prices as we move into the next era of the PC: tablets.

Well, the solution is simple ... don't move into "the next era" (as hereby declared by the ruler of all PCs), stay in this era and save money at the cost of not getting the benefits of a tablet ... whatever those may be.
