As Google and Intel has some plans to announce regarding Chromebooks later today, Microsoft is looking to crash the party with a great deal for a Windows laptop. Microsoft Store is now offering a neat deal in which you can get an ASUS X200-MA touch laptop for only $199. You can take advantage of this offer at both online and in physical retail stores in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and Canada.
This Asus device offers much value than any Chromebook available in the market. For example, the recently announced Lenovo Chromebook N20P offers similar spec and with the exception of storage which is limited to 16GB for a price tag of $329. I guess this Asus machine offers lot more value to users than a Chromebook.
