I am a Ruby developer working on a 14" TravelMate 8471 (Core 2 ULV, 4GB RAM) - I am looking for an ultra portable in the next few months. I'd wait for the Dell if it has:
- a good, bright and preferably mate screen with at least 1366px resolution
- Core i7 and 8GB of RAMs - a must have for my next machine
- fast SSD drive, preferably 256GB
- 7 hours of battery life must be possible (at least when I am turning off WIFI and make the screen darker)
... I'd care less about the software as everything is easy to install in Ubuntu. A virtual Windows7 preinstalled (ready to enter the license key) would be awesome.
