The XPS 8500 deal on that same page is pretty good. The $50 gift card bonus ends in a few hour.

How long does it take to get the bonus gift card?

Pairing in i7 with an HD4000 is just a poor combination. You might as well get an i3 for $350 because you won't take advantage of the horsepower. It good price if you're desperate for an ultrabook on the cheap.

If you really want a bang-for-the-buck ultrabook (at least in the price range), you're better off with a Haswell Macbook Air ($999 - i5 + HD5000), because at least you'll get the superior battery life, hardware, warranty, and tech support for just a bit more.

How is a $999 mac air comparable to this at all?

I have no idea what I'm talking about, but that makes no sense.

You're paying nearly $800 and getting none of the benefits of an "ultra book": light, portable, large battery life, but still powerful. It is too heavy to be used as a convertible book, underspec'd to be used as full--featured laptop.

I'm saying its not worth the money. An i7 (3rd gen) + HD4000 = waste of money (@$800). You are better off spending half for a i3 laptop, because you will NEVER use the "convertable" feature.

If it was $500-600, its a deal.

I hope you're joking. For $200 less than the mac it has 8GB RAM vs 4GB. 256GB SSD vs 128GB and a 1080p touch screen which is very useful vs a 1366x768 non touch screen. I've been using tablet pcs for over 2 years and the screen is nice for lots of stuff.

That's why I said, its ok, if you're desperate for one, but it isn't a "slickdeal", others should know before they waste their money. Spec for spec is a stupid comparison. Macbook Airs are one generation higher.

Lets be honest, you aren't going to use that touchscreen, because there isn't anything to use it for. No one uses a touch screen on a laptop, NO ONE. You might as well get an iPad + a cheap laptop, because it would cost less. Again, the advice is for people that care about $$$, this ain't a deal

Look buddy this is just your opinion. If I had not just bought a Zenbook Prime Touch I would be all over this. Your uses don't equal everybody else uses.

This is a good deal for a maxed out xps12 but after trying 2 out, the trackpad is terrible. It uses cypress and on the refreshed haswell version, dell swapped to synaptics after all the complaints. Its a very powerful setup and the convertible function is cool for reading webpages/books/notes and watching videos. Overall pretty solid for the price if you can get over a muddy trackpad.

Thanks dude for the heads up, was my last day buy something with the $300 gc on hand so I got the xps 8500! Didn't even bother to buy two more of those cards for an extra $50, it's a bad habit.

The specs on the product landing page (http://www.dell.com/us/dfh/p/xps-...d?~ck=anav) disagree with the ones on the page you link to/mention in your post.

Which are the actual specs?

EDIT: Nevermind, they just don't do a very good job of indicating that the higher end model has these specs.
