Microsoft launches a price assault on Chromebooks http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/14/5897641/microsoft-launches-a-price-assault-on-chromebooks
This came out today which happens to be the next business day after it was announced that Chromebooks were going to become cheaper with a less expensive processor. Unfortunately for Intel and AMD, the basic computer will be enough for most people who are not heavy PC gamers and won't require an expensive processor. This can only be good for society as it creates deflationary pressure that will drive the tablet prices down also. By driving tablet prices lower, the everyday business will have more technology where they might not have been able to afford it in the past. Schools will be able to completely replace books with tablets or laptops. And 4k televisions price will come down to $1000 for 100 inches of entertainment.
