Chrome Metro On Windows 8 and Recommendation for a new PC

I am contemplating returning back to PC after 4 years of Mac usage. Needless to say I have got accustomed to some of the niceties that OS X offers - especially the fluid smooth scroll which I know the IE Metro app now offers. But I am kind of tied to Chrome now. I have read about some extensions in Chrome that does pull of the smooth scroll in Windows but can someone who have used it confirm this?

Also I am considering getting the new Dell Inspiron 23. (Gee, this does look like one slick machine!):

Just wonder why PCs like that get very few mentions on sites like the Verge.
