Dell (DELL), H-P (HPQ), and other PC OEMs have pushed back the launch of Windows 8 Pro tablets running on Intel's (INTC) Z2760 (Clover Trail) Atom CPU to January. The Z2760 consumes much less power than Intel's Ivy Bridge CPUs, and is pivotal to the efforts of PC vendors to make a dent in the fast-growing tablet market as PC sales slump. And judging by recent comments from Acer, they could also give a lift to ASPs even if they don't boost total unit sales much.
