    But would they dare call it 13. Why not skip 13 and go to 14 or other less risky name to avoid the bad luck.

    Because it's a 13 inch display. I myself find 13 lucky ie proposition 13 tax cuts, etc.
  6. Another "uselessbook" with a 1366x768 screen. No sale Dell.
  7. @raybay they already have a 14" XPS model (XPS 14z).
  8. Glorified tablet or useless laptop, yuck.

    So what we have here is an Apple air wanna-be, but with WORSE parameters (i.e. screen resolution) and higher price.

    Let's count the ways that this is a problematic laptop:
    1. 1366x768 screen with no option for higher resolution
    2. No ethernet port (yes, this automatically disqualifies it from even being CONSIDERED in many enterprises).
    3. Price
    4. Dude, you're getting a Dell (for the price of an Apple Air)...
