Yeah, I like apple goods. But mostly because of the OS. OS X is so nice! It reminds me a lot of AmigaOS which I like best overall so far. BeOS wasn't too bad either. Of course MS is copying a lot of the good stuff from OS X lately so Win7 and Win8 are also pretty good - from a user POV. If you actually look at the hardware and the design attributes however, like cooling, power connection, general connectivity, speed, battery life, and so on Apple goods are way substandard at their relative price-point. Not everything I guess but most of their portable goods for sure.
I went ahead and ordered the XPS-12 and with the highest specs available plus the dock I think it came to like ¥130,000 which is like $1,450 (with the Dell loan program fees and interest that goes up to $1,750 tho). That's with 256GB SSD, 8GB RAM, USB 3.0 x2, BlueTooth 4, WiFi (802.11a/b/g/n), Win8-Pro 64bit, Corei7 (3517U), MiniDisplay connector, HD 4000 gfx , and of course the 12.5" 1080p touch-screen. The only things missing really are a memory card reader, and a pressure sensitive pen system. I guess a USB3 card reader is only like $25 tho.
Anyway, I can't find anything better. Under 3kg with a fast 4 core, 16/32 GB RAM, touch screen, convertible form factor, nVidia based GFX, and a 24 hour battery would be nice but it just doesn't exist yet - damn them!!!
