    All that Haswell power and not one single app that needs it? Seems like a waste to me

    If you want to complain about overpowered computers you are probably on the wrong forum.

    i wonder why they didn't put a more desktop oriented OS on it, like ubuntu, so you'll at least have some useful programs like the libreoffice suite and gimp etc

    Im not complaining about over powered computers at all. High end PC gaming is what its all about.
