Yeah I am hoping to get this in a convertable ultrabook for under 500 dollars. Would be a sweet buy for the money.

Again with that "price to oem" argument. rolleyes.gif

Keep in mind, are you buying the processor or the notebook?

Generally the cheaper the component prices, the cheaper the laptop.

A notebook with A4-5000/A6-5200 at the same price as an notebook i3 3217U would have overall better build quality. If A6-5200 lets say costs 80$ and we know that i3 3217U costs 225$ then the difference is 145$, so would an average Joe buy a notebook at has i3 3217U and costs 600$ or a notebook with A6-5200 that has similar performance and costs only 455$.

For 145$ difference, OEM could invest in battery, screen, put an SSD and much more.

How much of that $200 markdown is due to making way for Haswell products? Granted it's a good deal while it's going but I don't think it makes a solid basis to guess at how the upcoming Kabini and Haswell ULV products will slot into the market.

Nice find even thought you don't look at the other factors...

Asus X202E:
- 38Whrs battery(i3 3217 will suck it dry like a vampire in minutes)
- Idle 5 hours(web browsing 1.5h & gaming 30min)
- i3 3217U(TDP 17w+4w on-board FCH)

i3 3217U maximum power consumption is 35-40watts

A6-1450 "Temash" maximum power consumption is 20-23 watts

As for the pricing, the manufacturer sets the price of their products. AMD is not involved in the prices of Acers or any others partners product.

Anyway I saw products with Atoms inside at the price range of Asus X202E and Acer Aspire V5-122p.

Not to mention new products/chips are at the start expensive, i3 3217U in laptops was expensive and now its almost dirt cheap inside low quality laptops with short warranty.

Acer Aspire V5-122p costs in Europe 450€ so that is in US dollars about 583$.

You are citing price in Europe and not in USA for Asprive V5-122p

Not sure on why he chose a non-shop link for the Acer. Here is an Amazon pre-order at $479.99:

I am now confused, this a slightly different model with lower end "Temash" and weaker battery? What are these guys from Acer doing? Christ...

Even thought it looks like an ultrabook, the style, screen and other things.

All models are for pre-ordering, that does not indicate final price most of the time.
