The entire package will be starting at $1299 and it will go up if you’ll consider options such as Intel Core i7 and 8GB RAM. That might sound a lot but consider what you get: a great PC with a beefy hardware and a large-sized tablet PC. Don’t forget you’ll also be getting a 18 inch Full HD display too.
It will be available in the Q2 of 2013.
