RE: So it's still stuck with 1080p

Kind of like those retina displays in MacBooks that required hacks to enable the full resolution of due to hardware limitations..? Different form factor, different architecture, entirely different problems to face.
People complain about $600 cell phones.. imagine what it costs for a super-HD x86/x64 laptop with enough processing power for higher res than 1080p and still remaining mobile (in terms of size and battery life).
Not to mention it's aimed at gaming, and 1080p is a sweet spot as far as performance per watt is concerned using even discrete graphics cards. Higher resolution is superfluous at the laptop's size (interface would be much harder to use at higher res, even in Win8), unless aiming at photo-editing instead of gaming..
