But where is the 15" 7000 Ultrabook with 1080p ?

I think the above models were also re-announced 3 weeks ago after some pre-annoucements back in May.

What you don't mention is the fact the screens are a miserable 1366x768 with no option for better - less than many smartphones.

I read 15" is the most popular notebook size now, so why only 2 sizes (12.5 & 14") in the professional 7000 Series ?

What we need is a fast Haswell ULV with 15" 1080p non-glare (matte - which seems to rule out touch), preferably IPS & decent cooling.

When will Dell deliver ?

No penguins for you

I don't see any option on http://configure.us.dell.com/dellstore/config.aspx?oc=sl7443p05&model_id=latitude-e7440-ultrabook&c=us&l=en&s=bsd&cs=04

Could you recheck that press release you wrote up ?

WTF?

Meh

$1000 for;

4GB (1x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3L Memory

320GB 5400rpm Hard Drive

14.0 HD (1366x768) Wide View Anti-Glare WLED-backlit

Who the hell is going to "upgrade" to that my 4 year old laptop has the same core specs and when has the CPU ever been the performance limiting factor.

And they wonder why PC sales are tanking.

16Gb + SSD + 1080p as a minimum for the same price and ppl might consider otherwise why bother. Stick some RAM and an SSD in your old laptop.
