I played around with Window 8 consumer preview for a while on a vm on a high-end laptop, but after a while got bored of the lack of touch support so decided would give it a try on my Asus EeePC with Swival Touch Screen. Before I say anything I am aware that the tech specs say that this screen is below resolution. I installed it primarily to find out what the result of installing on a very common piece of hardware.
Well as you can see the error is handled, but the problem comes is it essentially makes the merto interface completely useless. In fact it makes it more than useless it is very annoying pressing start key then being presented with a load of icons that you cant click...
I hope they put in some fall back options for low res monitors, otherwise they will eliminate all notebooks atleast for update.
