$200 notebooks are on their way; however, which operating system will they feature?

Microsoft, Windows 8, CNET, Intel, Tampa, Google, Android, $200 Devices

Are computer and tablet prices a little too high for you?  Don’t worry, Notebooks prices should soon be down to $200, but the majority of these devices will be powered with Google‘s Android Operating System and not Microsoft‘s Windows 8, according to one Intel executive.

Paul Otellini, Intel CEO,  last week stated that touchscreen PCs could debut at prices as low as $200 in the coming months.  When this statement was made, he didn’t mention which operating system these devices would run.

Intel executive vice president and chief product officer, Dadi Perlmutter, said to CNET on Wednesday that notebooks priced at around $200 will predominantly be Android products running on Intel’s Atom mobile processor.  Whether or not Windows 8 PCs hit that price is really up to Microsoft.

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