You might save money by buying a cheapo tablet subsidized by Intel, but what about the battery consumption? ARM chips last so much longer without a recharge. I doubt Intel can match that.

The battery life seems to be comparable to that of other contenders, too. Asus claims run times up to nine hours on a single charge, which matches my subjective impressions based on casual use.
iPad mini Retina: 9.8 hours, 23.8 Wh battery
Memo Pad ME176C: ~9 hours, 15 Wh battery

Mainly due to Intel's lithography advantage. Bay trail at 22 nm vs Apple A5 at 32 nm
