Windows 8 is just around the corner, coming out in just over a month. With it there will be a truck load of new tablets and Ultrabooks. While we still don't know what Microsoft's Surface tablets will cost, ZDNet has managed to get a leaked slide with ASUS' holiday line up detailing three new Windows 8 devices.

Included in the slide is the price for these devices, $599 to $1,299, along with the rough specifications. The $599 ASUS Vivo Tab RT seems to be priced a bit high considering it is only running a Tegra 3 and Windows 8 RT. Above it is the ASUS Vivo Tab which comes in at $799. This features an Intel Atom processor and x86 Windows 8. Neither of these include the $199 keyboard dock.


Lastly, ASUS has a $1,299 hybrid. It features dual 11.6-inch IPS screens, front and back of the lid. This device is called Taichi and is going to have stiff competition from the other hybrids that will be coming with Windows 8. Overall, the prices seem a bit on the high side and it is likely ASUS will have trouble selling these, though I have been wrong before.
