Wave of low-cost Windows 10 on ARM laptops finally coming (pictures)

A major concern for consumers is that the compatibility issues with Windows 10 on ARM outweighed the benefits of the longer battery life, meaning they just did not see the value proposition.

 

One way to address this is to fix the compatibility issues, but this is of course very difficult given how vast and diverse the Win32 platform is.

 

The other is to simply reduce the price of Windows 10 on ARM devices to a level where users are willing to put up with the occasional driver issues and not being able to run high-end 64bit X86 applications.

 

Till now most Windows 10 in ARM devices have been priced at least at comparable if not more expensive than Intel devices, but NotebookItalia has discovered a wave of low-cost Chinese devices at the Global Sources Electronics Fair 2019, which will be hitting the market very soon which will change the playing field dramatically.

 

Manufactured by an ODM called Weibu, the devices appear to address every price point and form factor.
