The new build of Windows 10 for phones (with the Spartan web browser and a crop of new apps) may be grabbing the spotlight today. But Microsoft is also working on an upcoming update of the Windows 10 preview for desktop computers… and, if leaked images are accurate, one of the most notable new features is support for a dark theme.
In addition to changing the colors of the operating systems theme, you’ll be able to adjust transparency and other settings to customize the look of the operating system.

I recently reviewed Acer’s 11.6 inch 2-in-1 with a Core i3 processor and liked almost everything about it… except for the list price and the low battery life. A Core M chip could theoretically address both issues, although I wouldn’t expect a *huge* impact on battery life. [TabTech]
