    Well, duh!

    8gb ram, 512gb ssd, touch screen. I don't have the OneLink dock for it. Other than getting used to the new layout, I like typing on it. The keys are springy and give good feedback. I'm beginning to come around to PgUp/PgDn being at the arrow keys, but I still hate having Delete in the upper right corner. I could use a little more space between the function key blocks.

    Needs indicator lights. It drives me crazy when things just stop, and I can't tell if it's completely hung up or just busy.

    I use the touch screen more than I thought I would. It's so easy to just reach out and touch a link or scroll through a site.

    One thing I've had to get used to is having the trackpad click down if I rest my hand on it. Being a diehard TrackPoint user, I have it disabled, of course, so nothing happens. But it still clicks down a bit if I press on it in the right spot.

    I was ready to order this, but after I was burned by Lenovo with the 1st-gen non-touch, 1st-gen touch, and 2nd-gen touch, I put in an order for the Dell XPS 13 that was released today. I didn't like the XPS series as much before, but they went all out for this new one. There were just too many poor QC issues I ran into with Lenovo. The Samsung NP900X3C has been great, but it's time for an upgrade.

    I do hope Lenovo has improved things though, and those of you ordering are happy. I may have just been extremely unlucky. One tip I have is to thoroughly test it when you receive it. Looking forward to your feedback!

    :)

    At $1700 it better be good!

    Update for those who care: ordered my laptop yesterday, status now says expected shipping on 1/16 with delivery on 1/23

    When I ordered it said "ships in 5-7 days"

    So their timeline is slightly off
