Re: Intel Haswell availability?

I am a Debian user and just joined to comment on this. First things first: thank you Dell and George Barton for the project Sputnik. Two days ago, I had the sales person on the phone and was going to order the XPS 13. While talking on the phone, I noticed that the XPS 12 had already received the Haswell update, so I halted the order. I am desperately in need of a laptop, but have decided to wait for the Haswell update. With the new screen the XPS 13 is already a good UB. But the below config would make it a dream UB for me:

- a 4th generation Core i5--7 CPU

- At least 8 GB of RAM

- Integrated Intel graphics

- The option of a 512 GB SSD

- A screen usable in daylight, i.e. no gloss (I work with texts and travel a lot which means I use the laptop in daylight)

- And while we are at it: please make it light (goes with the travelling).

Many thanks again Smiley Happy

Re: Intel Haswell availability?

Doesn't look like they're even doing a windows 13 inch ultrabook with haswell. Still waiting on that even, which I might try for a bit or even go to the trouble of running it dual boot for a while. Looks like the only one so far is the 12 inch convertable, meh. I don't want to lose any further screen size, and I'd rather up it just a bit to 14 inches even.

Still waiting Dell! Stop worrying about what the CEO is doing and deliver some mac kicking hardware.

Re: Intel Haswell availability?

So I guess one mystery is solved.

Looks like we may have a beefier cousin of XPS13 DE, maybe a XPS15 Developer Edition. I base this on the just previewed Precision M3800

www.dell.com/.../precision-m3800-workstation

This looks strikingly similar to XPS13 in design.

Wow, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't extremely pissed that I just purchased a 3rd generation xps13 after talking with our Dell reps about whether or not any new hardware is coming.

That precision M3800 looks nice.

I'd buy that.  It looks pretty sick!  Look at that resolution!  I wonder if the Unity Desktop could handle that sort of ppi.

Beefier indeed: 4.5lbs vs the XPS 13's 2.99lbs. No thanks.

My main fear is that they decide the developer edition isn't worth it and the current edition will be the last one. But, but, I want Haswell! D:

RE: Intel Haswell availability?

Assumably the new Macbooks with Haswell will come soon now...

While the competition ships - again - mediocre Ultrabooks, including mediocre displays (but touch enabled, of course. This makes no sense at all - apparently the only porpose is to provide a selling point for Win 8), it seems Apple is again the only company doing it all right.

it is kind of sad - it seems noone is able or willing to ship a premium Haswell Ultrabook. And no, Win 8 is just no option.

Come on, Dell... Just do it, can't be that difficult... Pleaaaase
