win8ebayRemember when Samsung delivered their upcoming tablet that will run on the Windows operating system at the recently concluded BUILD conference by Microsoft to attendees? Just as expected, it isn’t too long before some of the attendees figured out that life is much more than just exclusive first hand experience with an unreleased tablet – having decided to put up their own BUILD tablet up for auction on eBay just to see how market forces will decide the final price tag.

Well, it seems that at least a couple of such tablets have already hit the $2,700 price point there, once again demonstrating the law of “supply and demand” in numerical figures. This particular piece of hardware is interesting, with an Intel Core i5 processor running proceedings from within, coupled with 4GB RAM, and a 64GB SSD, with the rest of the specfications looking very much like a laptop – until you realize that this is a tablet.

Since these tablets were designed for development and testing purposes, getting your hands on one might offer a very different end user experience compared to what Microsoft originally had in mind. Oh yeah, there won’t be any warranties for these, either.
