Neat Product, Awful Price

The floodgates of products that look somewhat like “normal” personal computers but run ARM and Android/Linux are cracking open. One by ASUS is great but priced too high for wide adoption. ASUS and others do want to recoup costs of development and there is a market for “new” at any price. In a year or two such products will be commonplace and priced much lower. Life of a charge is reported to be 8h on the tablet but 16h when connected to the dock/keyboard. Price is 500 pounds, too much for me. When you consider the licence fee for the software is $0 and the cost of the chip is about half what an Atom costs, the price should be a bit lower, IMHO. For $400 this would sell like hotcakes but the 500 pounds does not include the dock…
