    This is nuts. In 2019, 16GB is min RAM anyone should have on a basic computer. Especially give how ram prices have fallen.

    I like the soldiered SSD scheme even more, especially given the nice m.2 form factor and performance.

    Planned obsolescence & opportunity to charge Apple prices for storage.

    See my editorial "what on earth is going on with Dells XPS line?"

    I'll buy a Chinese passport before I buy a laptop with soldered SSD.

    Very close to the perfect business portable for me. Any word on when we can start ordering?

    The configuration options are expensive if you want at least an 16gb ram ($1750). Do you think the i3 (dual-core) with 8gb ram ($1100) is worth it? I'm not sure 8gb more ram and a quad-core is worth 60% more in price.

    Depends on what you personally are going to use it for.

    I was interested until I saw the prices, screw that. $1,750 for this i7, 16gb, 256gb SSD and a 13" 1920 x 1200 screen is insanity. It's a freaking productivity 2-in-1, not a gaming desktop.

    Yeah these prices are insane. In order to get 16GB, they force you to get an i7 which runs you $1750 minimum.

    I'm not interested in this 2 in 1, but these prices are not a good sign for when the regular XPS13 gets refreshed with Ice Lake.
