I hate lugging around my work laptop because it is bulky and weighs too much. That’s why my personal laptop is a 13″ Macbook Air. I like thin and light. Those of you that prefer the Windows OS and are interested in an ultra portable computer should consider the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. It’s due any day now and it looks really sexy with its super thin carbon fiber case and 13″ Gorilla glass display. It’s not all looks and no brains though as it is powered by your choice of a 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ i5 or i7 processor. Check out this 30 second Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook promo video where people in San Francisco were asked to choose which skinny laptop the liked best…

  2. Congrats Julie for getting paid to show the video was it good cos when I clicked on the link there was nothing there, maybe its cos I’m in the yuk!? I wont tell anyone there was no video. 😉

    1. @Jack Hmmm, it should play right on the page. It’s an embedded video. Maybe they do have it set to only play for US traffic though. Sorry for any confusion.

  3. All these ultranotes 🙂

    Have had a chance to play with the Toshiba Z830….nice form factor, nice weight, nice and fast.

    Video shows as blank on my work machine running Chrome, but works after loading correct plugin in Opera and works fine on my home machine on Chrome…..So not geographically restricted…..weird ! 🙂
