I was looking at the samsung 9, I could not find someone who was able to run 2560x1440 over the HDMI. It seems that their HDMI on the 9 series is 1.4 at best, and not 1.4a.
I know the HP XPS has mini displayport, and the spectre/xt has a thunderbolt connector on the higher versions(though the 15 version weight about 2.5lbs).
I know there is also the asus ux51vz, but the ones I could fine and with decent specs (at least 8gb with a decent size ssd) would cost almost as much as the rMBP 15, so I don't know if its best get the asus over the rMBP.
Alan321, the MBP of at least the two last versions, can run two monitors with DP->mini DP on the two thunderbolt connections. I have seen it work at the local apple store with the mid-2012 version.
The USB->DP does not work well with 2560x1440, which is the reason I need a HDMI 1.4a or DP/miniDP/thunderbolt connection.
I just want to note something while looking for the right notebook:
My lazy 6 years old HP 2540p has a DP connection... and its a royalty free standard... and more and more monitors come out with DP... that I fail understand why they don't add at least one mini DP on higher value ultrabooks...
