Microsoft Cuts Prices on Select Windows 8 Tablets and Convertibles
Which one? Samsung's ATIV Smart PC 500T tablet/notebook hybrid with AT&T 4G LTE. The 11.6-inch Windows 8 convertible wields a touchscreen panel with a surprisingly affordable $499 price tag, down significantly from $899. It also has an Intel Atom Z2760 processor clocked at 1.80GHz, 2GB of LPDDR2-800MHz memory, 64GB solid state drive, microSD card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, a micro HDMI port, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and a few other odds and ends.
If that doesn't tickle your fancy, there are several other models with reduced price tags, including the following:
- Samsung ATIV Smart PC Pro 700T: $999 (down from $1,200)
- Asus Taichi 21-UH51 Touchscreen Ultrabook: $1,199 (down from $1,299)
- HP Envy X2 11-G012NR Touchscreen Ultrabook: $599 (down from $849)
- Toshiba Satellite U925T-S2130 Convertible Ultrabook: $799 (down from $1,149)
Like the Samsung ATIV Smart PC 500T highlighted above, the HP Envy system stands out as a particularly good buy at its reduced price. It's essentially a premium Ultrabook for a fistful of mainstream dollars.
