    Well the 12" comes with 1080p, so 14" with the same Resolution standard should be possible.

    This machine actually makes a lot more sense to me...
    I know it states only 2.1cm thick, but it still looks bulky from the pictures.
    The price tag is also kind of high for a secondary machine for me.

    Supposedly there's another model of the 745 G2 with a 1080p screen, but I can't find it on their site. There is a model of the 725 G2 with a 1080p screen, however.

    The name of the project is something misleading. As I read the headline the first question that came to my mind was: "Why the f*#!"?$ do I need a special library for rebooting?"

    Nforce4 - somehow funny, that chipset was used for Intel systems as well. I don't see a direct correlation to AMD here, but if it helps... Opterons are usually slow as hell. s775 CPUs would be at least a bit faster...

    Yeah, but it's not on their US website. Not for the 745 G2, anyway, even though it is listed as an option in the 745's specs on their website. Maybe they stopped making that specific version, or maybe they ran out. Would have to call to find out, either way.

    Edit: Also, windows is expensive...if you build it yourself and remove Windows (select FreeDOS or Ubuntu) it costs $200 less. o_o

    You guy do realise you can order it with a 1080p IPS panel (at least here in Europe)?
    I even found an american document showing the option: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/pscmi...April_2014.pdf

    There are a few smaller ones with 1080p screens...if that makes any sense. o_o

    This.

    There you go. Magnesium alloy beauty. Coreboot should come eventually.

    Michael, you might want to look up the definition of "desktop motherboard".
