    I'm thinking of buying the top-of-the-line version with QHD+, i7, 512GB SSD and 8GB ram - but honestly can't make up my mind about if a MacBook Pro Retina 13 would be a better buy. I would have had to install windows on it though since I probably wouldn't use OSX, losing som space on the ssd and - from what I've heard - maybe lose some functionality due to bootcamp driver malfunctions. In that perspective, the Dell XPS 13 Infinity seems like a better option. But the build-quality of the Mac is just...wow.
    Any thoughts on this, help me make up my mind?

    If you change the setting for the mouse that says how many lines to scroll each time it effects the touch pad scrolling.

    Can someone help me get discounts for Canada? Should I call them? I'm a student.

    They tested the QHD+ model. The 1080p model should do slightly better.

    If this makes you feel any better, I'm selling my macbook pro 13 retina for this machine. Why ? I love the form factor, smaller and more compact but just as powerful, and them bezels! I'm mostly a windows guy but osx Yosemite is really good. A bit of a ram hog but if your into the apple eco system its awesome. Facetime alone to my wife and son while at work make it all worth it. Either way i prefer the Dell for reasons stated before. I got my desktop at home for gaming, design work and laptop for anything mobile.

    Is it better to get the FHD or QHD?

    Depends on your preference.

    I went with the FHD because it is cheaper. I like the idea of a matte screen to help with glare. It has better battery life and the FHD system weighs slightly less. And I will be ok without touch screen, especially for an ultrabook that's in a traditional form factor and not a convertible or 2 in 1.

    If you really want a high resolution screen or want touch capabilities, then go with the QHD.

    Yes, i know. But here in this thread many hava stated 7.5 hours for the FHD model, which is strange.

    Hi, i'm in the UK so no FHD option yet, any ideas when it will be out here?
    If i went with QHD+ instead can you basically run it at FHD instead if you want? Any downgrade on clarity or other negatives?
    I've used win8 for about 15 mins and didnt like the tiling but 8.1 might be better.... And can always use start8!
