$99 tablets and $350 convertibles are coming for the holidays, says Intel CEO
In fact, Lenovo just outed yesterday a full-blown Windows 8.1 tablet with the new Bay Trail architecture for $299, so it's not hard to imagine we might hit Intel's CEO Brian Krzanich prediction by year-end if things keep going in that direction.

i dont think you need a android along with win 8.1 pro its a whole OS that is x86 and you download bluestack on it then you have all android apps emulator on it at your disposal + all softwares of windows. but if you still need android try using Vmware it may run android inside windows or maybe not but it does run xp/win7/linux/OSX ........

Asus Transformer Book T100 is the one to go, IMO.
But there are also Acer W3(meh), Lenovo Miix 2 (just announced), Toshiba Encore, Dell Venue Pro 8.
Am I missing anything? I'm trying to let others know what is available.

That's the reason why Android tabs won't die: price. Windows licenses are too expensive and Apple - well, you know, they just overprice stuff.

I'll be curious to see if the bay trails live up to Intel's hype. I have a Dell latitude 10, and my iPad mini destroys it in browsing speed. Likewise Haswell battery life remains to be seen in real life use as well as running cooler.
