    If the Sony Z looks as good in person as the MacBook then I think I'll get one of those. I never been just completely blown away by the appearance of a laptop until now.

    I just have to wonder how investors of dell are thinking. I mean this just is not good business at all. If tech junkies don't like dell it slowly filters down to the mainstream with time.

    Nop, nothing to share as yet.
    All i know is that dell has had problems with this model in concept/production stages.. and they wouldnt want to deliver a bad product.

    Well. I am not sure when this model will be released by Dell but the testing phase is short. I don't work for Dell but for a private company and as such only 10 people across the world in different countries are getting the model. I clearly don't care whether people regard what i say as true or false. The simple fact was that Googling this particular model brought me to this site because i was curious to know what i was getting.

    Yes! I am scared of breaking the NDA because i have signed a contract with Dell/private company. I can face a serious legal issue and i have no idea whether the mods/admins of this site will backtrack me and give out my ip address or not. I don't even have any interest in any Dell products because i don't use any, i am just a tech enthusiast I figured to post here to help people out thats about it.

    From what I can make out, dell has no plans of releasing this in December since they pretty much expect us to enjoy this laptop during the holiday season. Thats what i can infer but i could be wrong atleast this is what it was mentioned there.

    peace

    But what about the next week thing, that you told us to wait? Will they reveal the specs of the laptop... or will you do it? :)

    Dell I am getting very bored at waiting for a Studio XPS laptop.

    Given we now have a Studio XPS desktop I really think we are going to see an announcement next week. Not based on any knowledge to be clear other than the current situation doesn't make sense.

    At a minimum Dell need to release a statement saying they are having some teething problems and want to ensure a completely smooth launch so delaying it. If they have faith it's going to be a killer machine then release the specs at the same time.

    This will stop them losing so many sales. I stood in the Sony shop today and if it wasn't for the fact that I find the FW a horrible looking machine I would have bought one as it fits my needs.

    Also the website here in the UK is beginning to look stupid. The XPS laptops have a badge saying latest technology which clearly isn't true.

    In fact Dell if you don't release something in the next week then maybe I should report you to trading standards due to false advertising :)

    That could force them to at least update the site to say "XPS - old technology at a premium price, don't buy this or your mad"

    Seems to me if they were going to release a laptop for the holiday season they'd have done it by now == studio 12
    small, cheap, perfect for christmas pressies etc.

    I'm starting to become a bit pessimistic about dell releasing the new studio's, Its kind of a pitty really, I'd like to have at least had the option.
    Now I'm going to have to go and buy something like a sony, samsung or a toshiba - yep desperate, but havn't any time left to wait around and I need to get a lappie this week. Weak effort Dell, very weak.

    Oh no, the 1530 as is, is my baby - I'll prob get something a bit more powerful gaming wise, when I upgrade next.
    I'm getting the studio 16 for someone else, well I'd like to get it - though that depends on whether it comes out or not.

    I was originally thinking of getting them the studio 17, but I'd hate to get it, then have this new one come out the next day:) which would be my luck.
