Dell could have fit a slimline DVD drive in there without cutting into the unit's height, or at least a better GPU than a stock Intel offering; if it's meant to be a MacBook Air competitor it must have something better than the Air's
GeForce 9400M, instead it's got something slower than the typical desktop GPU from 4 years ago.
Next it'll be revealed the battery isn't removable and has a pitiful 3-4 hour life and the display is TN with a cold-cathode backlight.
I can't think of the last time I used the DVD drive in my laptop apart from to install, I'm quite happy if it and external USB these days.
I do like the look of the screen, the glass to the edge, I wonder how close to the edge the actual display goes, would be really nice if the LCD went to the edge as well.
While not really a dev machine I can see our sales people loving it!
