    Dell = charge less for cheap parts and then charge exorbitantly for subsequent repairs/warranty.
    Bought a notebook from them this time. But never gain!
    My money is going to Samsung/Asus next time.

    No AMD presence anywhere in here except for optional discrete graphics in the Inspiron One 23 all-in-one.

    There are no new XPS laptops? Not the duos. But I guess the XPS 15 just got a full refresh recently anyways and doesn't need a touch screen.

    Why no Business products, you remember business products - 90% of their sales? I really want to see the Latitude lineup.

    The duo is nice looking, but I doubt you can held this like a tablet, I should call this a LAPBLET.

    Dell makes excellent Monitors & Servers, as far as the other 'stuff' often enough no comment.

    To shave off a few millimeters I suppose. Not like Joe and Jane consumer normally replace laptop batteries when they are dead anyways, but really with modern batteries by the time you get to half its original charge time the laptop is probably obsolete then anyways.

    No replaceable battery=not for me.
    I bought a dell xps 15 lx502. 1.5 years later the battery is at 65% health and i barely use the thing on the battery. In another year it probably wont last me longer than 1 hour. I can replace the battery on this computer but these, with the quality of dell's batteries, no way.

    What the heck happened to the Dell industrial designers? They wonder why they have lost double digit market share? Look at the laptops. The latitude went from ok looking D series, to the first gen E that was angular and badass. Then all of a sudden the E series becomes gumpy silver rounded corners with HUGE plastic bezels around the screen.

    Yep, I've had two Dell laptops in 6 years (Inspiron E1705, XPS 17). Both batteries stopped holding the majority of their charge within the first year of ownership. I bought cheaper OEM replacements but they didn't last any longer than the originals. When you spend over $3k on two laptops in three years, you expect to not have to spend hundreds more in batteries. Those were my last Dell laptops.

    Because it's generally assumed that customers would replace the laptops before the battery get worn out.

    And I do recall Dell got in some hot water when they programmed their batteries to suddenly "fail" when they're long from total battery failure.

    I think Dell was honesty thinking that you would replace the laptops within a year.

    I like that Dell's WinRT tablet has a dual-core Qualcomm S4 instead of the Tegra 3 MS stuck in the Surface as well as pretty much every other OEM. Still waiting for something with an S4 Pro or better, or a really nice Win8 tablet with an AMD fusion chip.
