The computer maker is planning to undercut the pricing of the Amazon Kindle Fire and other 7-inch competitors with a new model next year, but there are no official plans to bring it to the U.S. It could also introduce a less expensive Intel-based Windows 8 tablet.
The Surface Pro only makes sense with a keyboard. It's competing with several comparable Intel-powered tablet-plus-keyboard combos, plus all the small ultrabooks out there. And, while its pricing is actually quite competitive against those devices, its reported battery life kills the portability factor.

Intel executives mentioned $699 as a price tag for upcoming Ultrabooks. Can that seal the deal against the MacBook Air?
[[Update: Fudzilla is reporting that DigiTimes' account is incorrect, and an Intel rep has confirmed that no $100 marketing subsidy for Ultrabook exists.]]The future appears bright for Ultrabooks, but that's once Intel's new laptop platform emerges from a few birth pangs, primarily related to pricing.
Considering that Intel was pushing vendors to keep its Ultrabook prices below $1,000, charging $300 more than that doesn't exactly jibe with the plan to undercut the MacBook Air pricing.
The see-saw battle continues between Intel and the notebook vendors it's wooing to create its new Ultrabooks. Manufacturers have complained that part costs are too high to sell the systems for $1,000 or less, and Intel has not only thrown big marketing money their way, but also supplied a bill of materials that shows that the magic price point for Ultrabooks can be reached.
Despite Intel's lofty claims that its new Ultrabook platform of super-slim laptops would account for 40 percent of the notebook market by the end of the next year, it's been dogged by some issues as manufacturers work to get the first Ultrabooks out the door. The most notable one is the price tag, and the chip giant is stepping up efforts to show that the laptops don't need to cost more than $1,000.

Solid state drives have been marketed as offering speedier performance than typical hard drives -- making them great alternative boot drives for your OS -- but with the caveat that you will receive far less capacity at a higher price. Intel may not have completely solved the pricing issue, but it appears to have figured out how to move past the storage size limitations.
(Updated July 25, 2010, to add pricing) For smaller companies that are interested in a more energy-efficiency entry level server, Fujitsu has just come out with the Primergy TX100 S2, based on the Intel Xeon processor 3400 series.The big value proposition for the new hardware is that it draws zero watts during its off state; most other server models draw some sort of residual power even they are supposedly powered down.
Intel has updated its processor price list, and there are a handful of price drops and a few new entries.
Proving it's harder and harder to keep such info under wraps, it looks like the latest processors from competitors AMD and Intel have already had their pricing info outed by Asian muckrakers DigiTimes and a Bahrainian etailer. Those new CPUs include AMD's forthcoming six-core challengers (dubbed Phenom II X6) to Intel's Gulftown hexa-core Core i7-980X.
Intel announced pricing on it's Silverthorne (now Centrino Atom) processors at the Intel Developers Forum today. According to the Washington Post,There will be five versions of the Atom processor, formerly called Silverthorne, available as part of the Centrino Atom package.
With Barcelona, AMD will regain performance leadership and will be able to control pricing for a while, versus Intel, which has been hammering AMD on pricing at the low end processor segment, said industry analyst Nathan Brookwood of Insight 64."It looks like AMD is trying to match Intel in terms of both two-year cadence in process manufacturing cycles and in developing new cores.
