    I've been considering the Dell XPS 13. 3.02lbs, 13.3" 1920x1080 screen, 8GB dual-channel onboard RAM. I would really miss having a trackpoint though.

    This key is between the right Alt key and the right Ctrl key.

    How would you guys compare this with the sony vaio pro 13? I checked the sony out and the screen was great, keyboard a little shallow, but nice. Has an SD. And very light, wasn't sure about the flex, so not sure if flex is a good thing or bad, as I'll be using is with a backpack,.

    I can't say anything about the X1 carbon, but the Vaio Pro and Flex have bad reputations when it comes to fan noise. The Vaio Pro also has a terrible repuation when it comes to wifi reception. This is a big shame because otherwise they seem to be great machines.

    I think the new driver fixes the wifi issues. Seriously considering it. It's so small and sharp.

    Lenovo is now saying early February to customize the X1C due to supply shortages.
