Microsoft is going to cut the price of Windows 8.1 by 70 percent for makers of low-cost computers and tablets to compete with cheaper rivals like Google Chromebooks. Hardware manufacturers will be charged $15 to license Windows 8.1 and preinstall it on devices that retail for less than $250, instead of the usual fee of $50. The discount will apply to any products that meet the price limit, with no restrictions on the size or type of device.
