  1. FYI, the display resolution was “boosted” to 1280×768 since a lot of the Modern/Metro apps will not display on 1024×600. I suspect that this was done in software with Toshiba-proprietary Windows drivers as I recall one attempt at changing the resolution to 1024×600, and encountering the message about the Modern/Metro resolution restriction. Also, the OS is Windows 8/8.1 for Intel PC’s, not Windows Phone.
