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.

Actually AMD, NVIDIA, and Intel subsidize most of those stickers. Sometimes they seem to use super glue on those things, which ends up ruining the surface when attempting to remove them.

Whoever was the marketing "genius" who came up with that idea should be forced to remove sticky residue from anything he owns for the rest of his or her life...
