There's nothing I know of yet that uses HD 5000 other than the latest MacBook Airs and the 13" model doesn't have a 1080p screen (it's 1440x900). Samsung does have their AVIV Book 9 Plus laptop on the way with HD 5000 and a 3200x1800 display (scales perfectly to 1600x900) but it won't launch for another 2 weeks: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

In my opinion, 1080p is too small for a 13" screen. Text and icons would be too small at native resolution and 1080p doesn't scale down to anything useful (960x540 is useless). Your best bet is to settle on a good 1600x900 Ultrabook or wait for the AVIV Book 9 Plus, though retail pricing puts it nearly at $1400. The newer 14" Razer Blade is also a rock solid thin-and-light laptop with much more powerful graphics than an Ultrabook but the screen isn't quite as high quality as others (it uses a cheaper TN panel) and it'll cost you over $2000 for the pleasure of owning one.

Isn't the Razer 17 in only?

That's awesome, it's listed as 4400 intel on their website, newegg says 5000. Don't know the diference. Didn't know there was a 4400.

Also, wish it had a variant with more ram.

But that computer is great and totally what I was looking for. Thanks a ton.
