    Windows 8 has the desktop mode right? Its not just the tablet screen, you can access desktop? Why is it only like $65 for a copy of windows 8? It comes with the tablet display and the desktop. Windows 7 is more $ and it only has desktop?

    My guess is so that more people will actually bother with it and then use the new storefront which brings more money in the long run.
