| DELL XPS 12 |
i) Really, 47hr battery, or is that "watt hour"?
Yeah, that's battery capacity. 47.x w/hr (Sorry, forgot my double-u). It's rated at 5.5hrs to 6hrs in "normal use" @ full brightness - whatever "normal use" is.
ii) i7 3.0 really doesn't say much about the processor, such as how many cores, what generation chip, whether hyperthreading is enabled.
Gen-3, dual-core+HT, 4MB Cache
Nah. Would rather have a Zenbook or Air.
I looked at the zenbooks and this DELL is built tougher - even tho the pics make the XPS-12 look kinda flimsy.
-The $1400 model has a dual-core (hyptherthreading enabled) 1.9 ghz processor-- that can TURBO boost to 3.0. That's a big difference than having a 3.0 ghz chip, or having a 4-core non-hyperthreaded (or better yet, 4-core, hyperthreaded) chip.
What lightweight laptops have those?
You are college student?
For myself I would buy some superpowered and heavy notebook.
Yup, that's me too! But I can see a uni freshman lugging one around campus unless he was a total game freak!
Check out the screen - I have a Dell E6230 (and an E4300 before it) and the screen is no good for photo work. Poor viewing angles and very restricted gamut.
160˚ view angle IPS screen - 176ppi. Gorilla glass top. It's glossy tho. I can't find any info on the gamut - but still looking...
