Prices of Windows RT tablets drop, point to failure of OS

The starting price for Dell’s XPS 10 is now US$449 for a 32GB model, scalping $50 off the original launch price. The 64GB model is $499, which is a drop from the original $599 price. By comparison, the price of the Latitude 10 tablet with Intel processors and Microsoft’s Windows 8 OS remained stable at $499.

Microcenter always has a full fledged decent laptop for under $300.  Here’s the special this week for $279.  I don’t know why anyone would pay double for a tablet which is hard to do any real work on.   I recently bought a 7″ Samsung S3 tablet for $180 (on sale) that does everything one would ever need to do on a tablet.
