DigiTimes picked up word that intel has expanded its 2-in-1 reference design to cover 12.5" display products. These tablet/laptop hybrids are expected to carry prices in the $349 to $399 range for lower-end devices and under $699 for models based on the Core M series.
The reference design has been also updated to adopt Intel's newly unveiled 14nm Broadwell-based fifth-generation Core processor series for performance improvement.

Vendors such as Asustek Computer and Acer who enjoyed good sales for their 10-inch 2-in-1 devices have seen demand for these devices start weakening.

To maintain their performances, many of these vendors have started developing new 12-inch 2-in-1s using Atom, Celeron and Pentium processors priced below US$399, while 12-inch models using Core M processors will be priced lower than US$699, the sources noted.
