    Wonder if the skylake MacBook Pro ever will get Netflix 4K, do they have the DRM support needed?

    Of course, a desktop would have more than enough power to muscle its way through a 4K episode of "Gilmore Girls," but due to the wonders of vendor lock-in and DRM, you will be able to view the content only on a Kaby-Lake powered machine.

    Guess people who want to watch "Gilmore Girls" in 4K will need to join the "Waiting for Kaby Lake MBP" thread.

    Because of DRM, you won't be able to play it on dGPUs.
