"Make everything on your screen bigger"
Tucked away under "PC Settings" is an option that imbues Metro with some level of support for high-PPI devices. It does exactly what it says on the tin—make anything and everything Metro-related larger, using more pixels to draw interface elements and text.
Compare those screenshots to the ones from the previous page. Better, right?
Well, not quite. While everything appeared too small out of the box, everything looks too big in the enlarged mode. Tiles and other interface elements feel like they're short on space, and text is scaled well above my comfort threshold. That's especially apparent in Internet Explorer 10, which scales pages to an unreasonable level:
Those artifacts we spotted earlier are still there. I'll spare you another close-up, but you can clearly see the gray line above the TR Podcast and System Guide logos in the screenshot above.
I tried all sorts of maneuvers to find a proper, comfortable scaling level for Metro and Metro apps. One of those contortions involved following Microsoft's own instructions and forcing a display size in the Windows Registry. It didn't really help. Forcing the Zenbook Prime's actual display size (13.3") changed nothing, and entering a smaller display size (I tried 11.6") made Metro balloon up in exactly the same way as the "Make everything on your screen bigger" setting (which, incidentally, became grayed out in that configuration).
