Intel Promises Atom-Based Touchscreen Laptop Prices Will Drop To $200

The Verge’s Sean Hollister reports that while Intel, AMD, and ARM are all competing to offer a compelling Windows 8 experience at a low price point, Intel might be poised to shoot ahead.
Hollister notes that currently, you’ll pay upwards of $400 for a tablet with Intel’s dual-core “Clover Trail” Atom processor, but company CEO Paul Otellini says that prices will drop drastically when Intel’s new Bay Trail chip arrives later this year. Intel claims that Bay Trail will offer quad-core chip performance without consuming additional power, and Mr. Otellini predicts that “prices are going to be down to as low as $200” for Windows 8 touchscreen laptops.
