I mean for 249 starting price, that's a pretty good deal for everyday users that don't game or do any video editing. plus the low power draw from the cpu should yield really good battery life.

Sure they are cheap but the 200-300 dollar laptops are using the same atom cpu found in 100-200 dollar android/windows tablets no thanks. I will just save up and find a 550 dollar laptop on sale and use my atom powered tablet and amd fx destop p.c. for now.Especially since once cherry trail comes out these things will be useless.

The era of Landfill Windows is here: literally throwaway devices that Microsoft is hawking in a desperate bid to buy market share.

Of course it won’t last.

given most of these intel core designs do NOT have generic AVX2 SIMD + Intel Quick Sync in 2014/15 (and so any NEON optimised cortex and included hardware assisted encoding HW can beat them) then why would we care to buy these obsolete before you take them off the shelf products today...
