    Do you really like the 1366 x 768 resolution and 13.3 inch screen?

  2. thats the wrong XPS 13. The new one is out in Feb.
  3. bolt this on........lite up 3 flats

    rock 'n roll.

  4. Have they published the specs?
  5. not that I know of.
  6. Cool.

    Basically a MacBook Air with worse screen slower processor and BSODs, just to keep things fresh.

    EDIT: For those who haven't seen them, it's 128GB SSD, 768p screen, and Core i5-2467M (1.6 GHz)

    In all seriousness, you can pick those up all day long from the Apple refurb shop for $999. Install Windows and away you go...
  7. I actually prefer the Dell design. And it has a smaller footprint to boot. And it is upgradeable to i7.
  8. Each to their own! It's all good...
