I hope there will be some x86 tablets for less than €500.

I do too but I don’t hold out much hope for it at least not significantly lower then ~$500 USD. Although if I were to guess I would think that some older Windows 7 x86 tablets will be cheaper when Windows 8 tablets hit the market.

Not sure what you mean.

10.1-inch
HD
LED-backlit
Gorilla Glass 2
full high-definition screen
1366x768

1080p, 1080i and 720p are all considered HD. 1366x768 is above the 720p HD spec of 1280 × 720.
