    for $2000 tho, uh uh, dude you can`t afford a dell
    besides, who cares how thin and cool looking it is compared to how fast and reliable the operating system is? not to say this one doesn`t compare to a mac, but does it...?

    I don`t understand what is so great about these thin laptops. Sure, they`re lighter, but the things look like they would snap in half as easy as balsa wood.

    I`d happily lug a laptop the size of an oldschool brifcase around if it meant battery life and adequate processing power.

    Mainly battery life if I was using it for work.

    I don`t get why people want such thin laptops... I get that it`s easier to store/carry around, but you could break it so easily...Isn`t a normal laptop thi enough? Not to mention the reduced space, battery, less features....

    Even the Macbook Air seems pretty useless to me, except for design and showing-off purposes. And I`m a mac.

    Well it makes sense, the companies want you to break it so that you will buy a new one.

    Well I usually say no to Dell anyways, but this just cannot be a good investment. They didn`t really show any of the specs off, so I`m guessing the practicality of it is just as bad as the Air.

    I`d like that, assuming it has decent processing power.

    I know macs have a sturdy build and they just "feel" nice, tight, and well built. (price tag reflects it :O)
    But the air was stupid. Too little of functionality.

    This one looks like a good laptop. I`m assuming it has integrated gpu, 2-4 gigs of ram, and a core 2 duo, meaning it would have reasonable speed.

    Looks sturdy and sleek to me... and it probably has a disc drive already in it (rolling eyes at apple).
    Nothing wrong with it.

    I`ll stick with my asus m50vm though. :)

    Ive got a custom rig and a dell xps lappy. gotta say i was unsure about dells, but the xps line is ridiculously good. i wouldnt reccomend a PC from them tho, but the laptops are great.

    But thin laptops are dreadfully bad, the LOL-AIR is a perfect example.

    I chose my laptop because it was as light as I could get with still a reasonable amount of power. The only downside is that it doesn`t have an internal cd-drive, but it came with a very good external one. I think lightness and slimness are really important, since the whole point of having a laptop is that it`s transportable.

    "No, im not a mac boy Shin. Dells are just a POS. I`d rather build my own rig. No offence to anyone who owns a Dell and willing to die for it with thier loyalty."

    So you`re going to build your own laptop?
    I mean, it`s possible, but good luck, I`d rather just buy one.

    I love building desktops, but if you`re going for portability I wouldn`t diss laptops at all.

    My current desktop is at my old house, built it myself.
    The place I`m staying now is rather... confined... so I got a high-end laptop (not quite a Sager or anything, but a good laptop).

    It`s a fine desktop replacement.
    Dell isn`t bad. Their desktops aren`t bad. Their laptops aren`t bad. I just prefer Acer and Asus for their laptops.

    And btw, to whoever said they had a Vaio, I`m sorry for your bloatware. I`m sure it would`ve been a fine machine. :p

    The dell website does a fairly poor job at advertising the laptop. I find it incredibly hard to actually "see" the laptop with all the extreme closeups of irrelevant parts of the computer.

    The site is probably a little too obnoxiously artsy.

    Thinner than the mac book. I was disappointed to find out that its specs are comparable to the mac book, and its at about the same price. (The macbooks are 1800 and 2500).

    Dang.

    Still brutally expensive. I could build a beast of a machine desktop that could take over the world with that kind of cash.

    And Macs are nothing more than a fashion accessory. All this `Mac Community` bullpoo and `It Just Works` (even though there are numerous `Help me, it`s broken` help forums out there). Notice how all Macfans come out with are corporate slogans invented by the Mac wizards? Yes, let`s queue all night for an iPhone. It has less features than a standard phone $200 cheaper, but I don`t care! I love the HUGE announcement that the latest iPhone is.... wait for it... going to get COPY, CUT, PASTE! features. Like no other phone available has that exact same feature and more!

    Yep, that should create a nice Mac / PC flamewar. Especially from Macfans who think I`m being serious. Or am I? *Diehard pose!*

    I think it looks nicer than the same-old-same-old apple..I am actually quite surprised that it is a Dell, because as the girl said, they are usually quite bulky.

    Too bad the interviews are staged.. (The girl says it is lightweight before she even picks it up..)
