Lenovo’s Says RT Tablets Up to $300 Cheaper Than Win 8

Lenovo Group Ltd., the world’s second-biggest maker of personal computers, said new devices based on Microsoft Corp.’s Windows RT software will cost $200 to $300 less than competing products using Windows 8 software.

Microsoft plans to release two versions of its new operating system this October to bring a new touch-screen interface to computers and tablets that will better help it compete against Apple Inc.’s iPad. Windows 8 works on chips made by Intel Corp. and Advanced Micro Devices Inc. while Windows RT works on ARM Holdings Plc technology-based chips, a standard that dominates in mobile phones.
