    My first impression was whoa! Then I started thinking, how does this resoution work out exactly?
    If I install Windows 7, open windows explorer, i will need to bring out the microscope? just wondering.
    Also right now I'm not to fond of the glossy screen, but the 8 gigs of ram is finally here!

    Samsung is touting the anti-reflective nature of this glossy screen stating it's "sunshine friendly" - to what extent remains to be seen of course.

    As for resolution handling, I'm skeptical as well, but apparently Windows 8.1 (Blue) will improve the scaling issue.

    As for now, this will be the flagship Windows Ultrabook on the market.

    too heavy (+260g, more than 20% heavier than its predecessor)
    too glossy
    too high resolution

    agree, 1080p matte non touchscreen would be better. Anyone knows why Intel 7260 WiFi adapter so special that starting at $60 on Egay?

    Search for NP940X3G. It is already getting listed by some etailers (example here) so I expect weeks rather than months (for some countries). However, an over-abundance of pixels is no compensation for 4GB RAM and 128GB SSD.

    Early August release.

    8GB RAM/256GB SD is available.

    The Intel 7260 has received excellent reviews for its 5GHz performance.
