    This should make both Apple and Microsoft jittery...

    Android notebooks? Yep, Intel says, and they'll only cost $200

    Dadi Perlmutter, Intel's chief product officer, also tells CNET that devices running Intel's mainstream Core line of processors could sell for as low as $399 to $499.

    Notebook prices should soon hit $200, but most of those will be Android-based devices, not Windows 8, an Intel executive said.

    Intel CEO Paul Otellini last week said touchscreen PCs could debut at prices as low as $200 in the coming months. At the time, he didn't specify what operating system those products would run.

    But Dadi Perlmutter, Intel executive vice president and chief product officer, told CNET on Wednesday that notebooks priced at the $200 level will predominantly be Android products running on Intel's Atom mobile processor. Whether Windows 8 PCs hit that price largely depends on Microsoft, he said.

    "We have a good technology that enables a very cost-effective price point," Perlmutter said. The price of Windows 8 laptops "depends on how Microsoft prices Windows 8. It may be a slightly higher price point.
