Hardware, Embedded Systems "We're sure that more high-density Windows laptops are on the way, but the Kirabook is the first to make it to market. The laptop raises some natural questions: Does a computer that is both thinner and lighter than the Pixel and the Pros skimp on battery life to achieve these feats? Is the Kirabook good enough to justify its jaw-dropping $1,599.99 starting price? Most importantly, can Windows support high-density displays as well as OS X, Chrome OS, iOS, Android, and others can?" Great laptop, great screen, decent battery life - but Windows' scaling is a terrible mess. Metro is fine, but the proper desktop is a disaster.

long term though Microsoft needs to move more of Windows over to Metro.

That has to be the most obvious piece of flame bate I've seen posted here in a while. Congrats there Mr. Nelson, you win the Captain Obvious Troll award for the month.
