ATIV Q price.

The price of a divice like this is always a big part of the equation. We all want the best gadgets we can get at as ow a price as possible. Last week we could read that a german retailer had put the ATIV Q up for pre order at the pretty steep price of €1,599. And just now we can see from that their price is £1,399.00.

If we convert that number to dollars we come up with a price of 2000 dollars plus. Whoa this laptop had better be good at that price.
