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.

At least you can peel them off without them making a mess. First thing I do when I get a new machine

Not always, the ones on my old dell m1530 took some coercing and left a generally unpleasant leftover glue. Good thing the surface was aluminum - if it was plastic there would be lots of nasty scratches.

I usually cover the scratches with nice Centos/Fedora/whatever stickers. :-)
