this seems like (almost) the perfect laptop for me.
i've been plugging away on a 1st gen dell xps m1330 (summer 2007) for almost 5 years now, so any new laptop will be a huge upgrade to me, but i want my next laptop to last just as long.
-14" form factor is slightly big for my liking, but they've kept the weight down.
-chicklet keyboard is the future, so i wont complain.
-HD+ screen is a godsend
-hd4000 + discrete gpu should mean we're good for 2-3 years of gaming
-thunderbolt eGPU can extend the gaming life beyond 3 years
-that glossy bezel around the screen really pisses me off though.
question about ram - 8gb is just the factory limit, so we'll be able to stick 16gb (2x8gb dimms) in later if we want, right? What about memory clock - all IVB supports 1600mhz standard i think?
