Tablet computers and smartphones have taken a huge bite of Microsoft’s apple and the rot has continually been expanding. On the other hand, Google Chromebooks have been pushing Windows computers with the price advantage, while Apple Macbooks are oppressing from the opposite direction.

Microsoft charges PC vendors a sum of $50 for Windows 8.1 licensing fees per computer. The 70% cut means $35 is gone, leaving the vendors at $15 per Windows 8.1 installation and more chances of selling a PC at an even more competitive price level.
