|STi||Overall this laptop is not a bad at all. I was thinking of getting an ultrabook for my wife but I think she is dead set on a Macbook. Which I personally can not stand. Now I have Alienware M14X R2 i7,8Gb 1600mhz,256gb SSD, Dualboot Win7 and Win8 and prettry happy with it.|

I did that with my T60 (not the gaming, but everything else), served me well but I need something with more room to breathe. This laptop would have been it if it was upgrade friendly.

At least in my household we don't keep multiple PCs in the living room where we spend a lot of time. We have one laptop that is not a heavy weight (think light browsing and youtube/skype etc for wife) . Yet I use it for casual development stuff when watching TV etc. Run a LAMP setup, have Visual Studio installed, Eclipse, a database for quick local poc work etc.
And yes most of my friends follow similar model. Exception is if they already have an Office laptop and are in a long running job/contract.

As a developer looking for a more mobile platform, this would have been a GREAT ultrabook but the soldered memory is a no-go. Gotta have the room to let my J2EE application servers breathe.

Why do you need more than 4gb of ram? Most likely this ultrabook will be used for internet and word processing. It could will not service as a gaming laptop because of slower CPU and GPU.
I can understand the battery down the road might need a replacement and 128gb might not be enough for everyone.

|kokemon23||Well, it's OOS now, so I guess that makes my decision pretty easy.|

|asgaard||I'd be all over this laptop, but there are 2 problems. The RAM is soldered on to the motherboard, and the battery is not user accessible without considerable effort to remove the bottom casing.|

* It looks like the SSD can be upgraded, but they don't make it easy to access:
* I don't think the RAM can be upgraded.
* I think it's a glossy screen.
