Will it be enough to revitalize PC sales?

By now you should be well aware that Microsoft (MSFT 2.03%) has had a difficult time revitalizing the PC market. As a result, the PC has hit a bit of a rough patch, with most recent estimations calling for a 13.9% drop in year-over-year shipments. In terms of form factor, ease of use, and affordability, the PC lags far behind the tablet. However, the PC is rapidly evolving to be more tablet-like in the future, and the prospect of a $200 Windows 8 tablet isn't too far off. In the video below, Motley Fool contributor Steve Heller weighs in on the prospect of a $200 Windows 8 tablet and what it could mean for the PC industry as a whole.
