    Windows 8 Resolution


    I was just reading that Windows 8 Metro/Tile interface only supports resolutions higher than 1024x768. Is this true? I have an HP Slate 500 with 1024x600 - is my tablet pretty much useless now or will it be able to run Windows 8?

    No. If this is true there will be a update. Microsoft garenteed that if a system that runs Windows 7 will work 100% in Windows 8. So don't worry.

    It will be able to run Windows 8, but most of the Metro will be dead.

    You can use this to increase resolution.

    HELP! I have a Targa Monitor LCD 19inch wide which calls for 1440 X 900. Win 8 forces me to use 1280 X 1024. Any way to make it accept my resolution?
