Intel's super-thin 'Core M' tablets will be cheaper than you think

Not everyone of us has enough knowledge about chipsets and what’s really going on in all those computers and smartphones but we do know one thing that Intel's 7.2mm-thick reference PC was something big and probably the most important thing we saw this week at Computex.

These Core M-series processors are designed for the 2 in 1s and they will be ushered in full-fledged computers which as reported are going to be even tinier than the iPad Air. Hearing all this we can think to ourselves that with such advancement Intel is certainly rolling out something futuristic and executive and automatically we would relate a premium price with this concept. But the reality this time is far better than our imagination because according to Intel that these devices will cost far less than typical Ultrabooks.

In fact, according to Intel's PC client chief Kirk Skaugen, the prices could run as low as $600 which is just equal to all the mid rangers out there. However, it is difficult to keep a device so thin and so cheap at the same time. So in order to hit this price mark, the tablet would have to be slightly thicker than the "Llama Mountain" reference PC we told and that machine would cost closer to $799. "I think Llama Mountain could deliver $799 kind of price points," he added. "Maybe they go a little thicker, but they'd still be fanless and hit $599, $699."
