    Sorry Guys, the article says:
    "Het trackpad zou van glas zijn en over geïntegreerde muisknoppen beschikken"
    It will be a glass trackpad, with intergrated buttons...

    So they're going aesthetics over usability? If that's the case, maybe it's time to look elsewhere for a similarly spec'ed laptop. Hey Dell can even remove the keyboard altogether and have it touch based too. Then we can play the did-you-really-press the button game every time we use the laptop.

    Wow, that is disappointing to say the least. Not surprising, though, as thin laptops with clickpads (a.k.a. Macs) sell, and the other companies are jumping on the bandwagon. Samsung uses them, Toshiba will use them in the new Satellites, Asus has one in the ultrabook, HP uses them in the Envy line, and I thought I saw one on the Sony ultrabook prototype...

    Another thing I hate is the ultra small arrow keys. Those really annoy me. Too bad for most people it doesn't matter and Dell is probably moving with the trend. :(

    I wonder if the new Xps 17 will also be a Mac clone. Probably, I guess. :(

    I actually prefer the design of the XPS L502x, it is much more unique even if it does have it's "rough edges". (ie stupid idea of the HDD activity light behind the screen)

    Well I'm hoping Dell xps l521x have numpad and the location of speaker changed to the top of keyboard instead side by side. And the nvidia should be using gtx series if possible and also the speaker should keep up. since it really performs well and for the port include the vga port and 2 usb 3.0 and 2 usb 2.0 for better performance. thx

    Merged the "New XPS 15" and "XPS L521x" threads as we had a lot of parallel discussion going that'd be more efficient in one thread.

    Mistake on Dell site, I snatched a xps17 with 2x 512 GB SSD for 930 euro. The article indicates it would get integrated trackpadbuttons indeed..
