Running Chrome in desktop mode on a Windows 8.1 device typically brings a Chrome OS-like experience. That’s not yet the case with Microsoft’s new Surface Pro 3; the touchpoints are off, possibly because of the unique 2160 x 1440 display resolution of Microsoft’s laptop / tablet. But there is other good Chrome OS hardware available now and coming soon as we discuss on this week’s Chrome Show podcast.
