Although I think Win8 is pretty bad for the cooperate environment, these tablets at that price peek my interest as a student. I would probably have paid $300 for a Win8 tablet instead of buying my Nexus7. I really enjoy my Nexus7, but having the convenience of a full OS is hard to beat.
The1kingbob, I may have missed it, but did it specify "Windows 8 Pro" in there? If not, these may be metro tablets, and as such, no full OS for you/us.
If they DO start releasing pro tablets at sub $300 prices and they actually work half decently, those will be winners, and in my opinion, far more bang for your buck than almost anything out there. If it's metro though, you may as well go Android unless you *really* want the official MS software suite to play around with.
Not sure what you meant by half-decent, but how about this?http://www.amazon.com/Vivotab-Office-ME400C-C2-BK-10-1-Inch-Tablet/dp/B00CY9Q8AQ/ref=amtcd_B00CM1BN5G_B00CY9Q8AQ
No way we gonna get a $300 tablet running intel iCore CPU, cos even i5 costs $200 alone.
