    Am I the only one who doesn' enjoy using Windows Apps? Not beacuse they're bad, but because they drain my CPU and RAM. No matter the app, everytime I open one usage of my CPU goes up to 30-40 % just for that one app!!! Even if it's just news feed. It's unusable for me in this state :/

    When I open apps I get a spike at first to around 15%, then it drops to 2-3%. I have a constant use of 4GB of RAM, it doesn't really go higher than that no matter how many apps I open. I haven't really noticed any performance issues.

    I believe Store apps are the way forward, at least that's what Microsoft is aiming for. But what you mention here is a downside; using the services online instead of an app takes up no hard drive space and there is nothing to install.

    That said, hardware nowadays is relatively cheap. Rather than trying to make an app more efficient at the expense of features or usability, it is easier to just throw in more RAM or a larger capacity hard drive.

    True. But if Forbes Media or News (and many others) take up 30 % of power of i5 CPU... something is seriously wrong!
