Just converting the Euro price gives you about 1600 dollars. Not bad for an i7 with a 256gb SSD I don't think. I might pull the trigger, I don't know, I'd rather a matte screen that the Toshiba has going for it. I think I'll have to check them out in person, still not sure about the Asus trackpad, I like buttons, another thing the Toshiba has.
I'm not sure how important storage is for me, all my media will be on an external.
400 nits display should be quite bright. I agree Phil, the color gamut is not great but should suffice for a portable notebook. The only thing I would like that is omitted is a backlit KB. The HD+ display is really the deciding factor between this unit and the other ultrabooks which are all 720p resolution. If the Toshiba had an HD+ display, it would be a much tougher choice.
This looks like my wife's next notebook.
