    It has the thinnest bezel ever on a laptop. It's the size of a Macbook Air 11", and yet it has a 13" screen. Saw one for real yesterday, and it had that "wow" effect on everyone who walked by it. It's made of carbon fibre and magnesium. Beautiful device.

    So it's a MacBook air with Windows?

    That's like having a Toyota with a Chrysler drivetrain.

    Look at the last picture.

    It makes the MacBook Air look fat.

    They come with an I3 or I5 and 128gig SSD? Graphic card is nothing either. They look good but they are not anything special in terms of performance.

    He picked it up in a store then put it back down before security threw him out for being a dirtbag.

    Only negative is that due to the thin bezel the webcam is located at the bottom left of the screen, which makes it awkward for web chats. Other than that, well done.

    I know I'm showing my stupidity but, I've broken monitors twice by picking the laptop up by the open lid. I don't do it anymore but, I'd think a frameless monitor like the Dell would be even more delicate.
