I researched the wireless card some more because I would want to replace mine but this model (Q200e) only has one antenna so it cant use bluetooth or dual band. the x202 has 2 antennas so can use the that specific card to its full potential
You're right it has two antennae connectors, and my S200E only had one, but one is labeled "main" and the other "aux". I plugged into the "main" and I have no issue with bluetooth or wifi range, so I wouldn't let that stop you.

Here's what I'm referring to: http://i.imgur.com/pn3MqyL.jpg

That's how mine was labeled.

ALL wireless cards need at least 2 antennae other they won't pick up the signal.

not worth the upgrade if battery life only lsts 3-4 hours. i'd need 5 at least before upgrading.

cons: 2nd gen i5, 2-3 hours battery, very sensitive fragile screen
pros: everything else
2nd gen. i3. I was almost allover this when I thought it was an i5. I will have to reconsider considering it's an i3, and last-gen.

4th gen is just around the corner (June 2, 2013) and the integrated gpu (GT3) is more than double performance of the Intel HD 4000 (which is already good) and battery life is going to be even better. They are going to have GT1, GT2, and GT3 so get the GT3 if you care about the gpu (you should care!). I think the GT3 is going to be slightly better than a NVidia 9800 GT which is pretty amazing.

The Ultrabook Haswell CPUs are going to be 13.5W and 15W.

For laptops, i3s are more than enough. i3s (2nd-gen or newer) are faster as AMD quad cores, have about the same performance in processing power, and have better battery life.

With that said, this is a great laptop for $300. 2nd-gen i3 (Sandy Bridge) is still a very good CPU. Win8 alone costs $90, and having a touchscreen to go along with it is nice. 4GB of ram is enough for 95% of people. USB 3.0. hdmi. 500 GB is pretty good. I'd stick an SSD in it though.

Sandy Bridge is awesome. Ivy Bridge is awesomer. Haswell, I dont think the name is as cool as Ivy, but it's going to kick some awesome ass.

Dual Band/Bluetooth will work just fine if you change the card. The antennas are not dedicated...

Would this i3 chip support virtual emulations (ie. Windows Virtual PC XP Mode)?

I've never owned anything less than 8GB except my Macbook Air with 4GB... Then again, I only use my Air for remote access at school.... I don't know how well this will run some of my apps...
Wow, compare that to my first desktop with 64MB RAM and my first laptop with 256MB RAM. Makes me feel ancient. look around
