    Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 with Win 8, keyboard will cost $799

    That's it for w8 on tablets then...no one will pay that much for windoze junk.....

    PC makers usually don't cough up pricing information on unreleased models easily, but apparently the folks at wpcentral merely asked Lenovo reps at a recent press event how much the ThinkPad Tablet 2 running Windows 8 Pro would cost at launch -- and the reps told them. The new slate will bow on October 26 -- the launch date of Windows 8 -- and cost $799.

    That price will apparently include a keyboard, which could make it a slightly better deal than Microsoft's own Surface Pro tablet, which may cost $799 with an additional $199 for its keyboard cover. (You may also be able to buy the ThinkPad Tablet 2 without the keyboard, presumably for $100 to $200 less.) But it's also in line with Microsoft's assertion that Windows 8 Pro tablets will compete in price more with ultrabooks than with consumer tablets.
