    Default Dell Says Windows 8 Touchscreen Devices to Be Priced Higher

    Touchscreen laptops and tablets with the upcoming Windows 8 OS will be priced higher than their non-touchscreen counterparts, Dell's CEO said on Tuesday.

    Dell will offer a full complement of Windows 8 products when Microsoft launches its new OS, CEO Michael Dell said during the company's quarterly earnings call. The touchscreen Windows 8 products will occupy higher price bands, which could mean higher profit margins for Dell, he said.

    Oh well, I don't recommend Dells to clients, anyway. Nor HPs, for that matter.

    Cheers,

    It only makes sense that a touchscreen will be priced higher than a non-touchscreen. There is more involved in building the screen.
