I need a new laptop and not sure which direction to go. A few weeks ago, I was looking at the Dell XPS 15z for $1,599
(Intel Core i7-2640m 2.8 GHz, 15.6 HD Screen, 256 SSD). I took the advice of people in this forum to wait for the new Ivy Bridge Intel processors to come out.
Now that they are out, there are more options to choose from. Apple's MBP with retina looks NICE. Sony Series S look great. Samsung Series 9 has options. HP has the Envy. Dell has a few as well.
The specific ones, I'm looking at:
MBP with Retina ($2,199)
Sony S Series
Samsung Series 7
HP Envy 15
Dell XPS 15
I'm looking for a 15 inch laptop that is somewhat thin and somewhat lightweight. Sleek cool appearence would be cool (one of the reasons I'm looking at the MBP).
I'm willing to spend up to the amount of the Apple MBP with retina ($2,199) and just want the best option. If you were in the market for a new laptop now, which one would you go for?
