    I just hope these buttonless touch pads aren't terrible. I've yet to see an Apple-imitation buttonless touch pad that was any good. They're all stiff and unresponsive. Hopefully Sony's made some kind of improvement...

    Stiff? Can't see why that would be a problem as smartphones are 100% stiff without any complaint from the users ;)
    Instead of imitating the already flawed Apple design it would be better to just use a vibration motor as feedback instead, in that manner one could get different feedback from different gestures/taps. Or no tactile feedback at all if one (like me) don't need it.

    haptic feedback like on cell phones for the buttons could be an interesting idea with the ability to turn it on/off and modify the intensity like on cell phone.

    btw when is this new E/C series coming? the press release was not very specific on a date of release.

    These look really sleek. The design is very good looking. I hope the Ivy bridge C series looks something like this. This may be what I will buy this summer for college!

    SVE14A16FGH - is Ivy Bridge = third gen i7

    SVE14A15FGW (white model) - sandy bridge i5

    but both are running on the new HM76 Express Chipset.

    the difference in price gives you Ivy bridge, 750 GB drive, intel HD 4000 and that appears to be it, oh colour of course.

    And it weights 2.27 kg (5.00 pounds), which I think is not stellar but still pretty good for a 14' quad-core laptop. I wasn't expecting being interested in this new E series but the technical specs look really good!

    The SE has a 1.5" bigger screen, higher FHD res., and is a 300g lighter than the new E.

    And it is more expensive, makes sense right? Pay more, get more specs and less weight.
