There’s also up to 8 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage, a 3-in-1 SD card reader, as well as Gigabit Ethernet, Wireless N, Bluetooth 4.0, 4 x USB 3.0, HDMI out, DisplayPort out, audio out, and a security lock slot. 

No word on specific release date or pricing, but we’ll try and find that out for you at the show. For now, we know that it will start at $200.

    Why an i7? Because it brings all the geeks to the yard! You need to open that browser 0.2 seconds faster my man.
