I don't understand, how can an i5 beats an i7? 3DMark06 is tailored only for gamers so that don't count as an overall system performance unlike pcmark. Under the hood, apple uses superior mobo and chipset?

The PCMark benchmark has a strong bias torwards SSD's. It's an easy win for the MBA since it's going up against a hybrid drive system..
Also, there is no architectural difference between the ULV(Ultra Low Voltage) i5's and i7's; aside from the marginal clock headroom. Both are dual core, hyper threaded CPU's

I see and thanks for educating me. So based on your information, Dell is pretty stupid trying to price their laptop in the same ball park with MacBook Air. What I mean by that is, if I was a consumer out to shop for a new notebook, I would definitely toss the XPS14 into the garbage and wouldn't even consider it.

Now, if it's $500 less (even refurbished) then oh yea, good deal. So the bottom line is, apple is taunting the rest of the world, "bring me your best work and I will bring a mediocre work that will not only be better than your best work but will also make a fashion statement while laughing at your best work"

I would take this Dell over any Macbook, any day!

My sister in law has the Macbook Air 13" and benchmarks don't always translate to real world performance. Her laptop is so slow, she only uses it on airplane trips. For real work, she uses her ThinkPad.

She regrets buying Mac and will probably sell it any day now and get a Nexus 7 for 1/6 of the price.

Well of course if it's $565. Now try retail price $1100 XPS. What do you take now?

Not really. Remember, it's just a synthetic benchmark; while a system would benefit from an SSD, it doesn't reflect the average usage scenario. Quite simply, Dell was packaging this laptop with storage capacity in mind(since a 512GB SSD is still crazy expensive for both Dell and the consumer, it didn't make any sense to include one). Alternatively, if you wish to improve the performance, you could always drop in a bigger mSATA SSD and install Windows on that partition. Provided it's a comparable drive, you'd edge out the MBA, and still have 500GB of storage from the HDD.

Personally, if I was patient, I'd wait for the refresh XPS14, or buy a refurb FHD XPS13 when it goes on sale. The new FHD XPS 13 is a little terror of a system; and with the right discounts, wouldn't surprise me to see it in the $600 range soon.

Yes the xps line of laptops that are refurb present the best choice for slickdealers like me and you. They have American support and in-home warranty service very similar to SONY. Also, in terms of price/performance ratio is also better as well when compares to the rest of the lenovo, hp, acer crowd.

Amen. The reason why Apple is so successful is because of build quality and support. Think of a pyramid. Now look at the rest of the crowd. It's an inverted pyramid. Not very strong base (quality + support), but put in hefty overloaded with components as they go up their inverted pyramid to trick the consumers thinking they got a very powerful unit and beats apple any day of the week.

I said it before and I will say it again. Sony is the "apple" of PC. If you want a PC, Sony should be on top of your list. If you want a Macintosh, then you're in luck because Apple is the king.
