Haswell!

Samsung seems to get the battery life part of their notebooks consistently right. I can't wait to buy a Haswell version of this (knock off some $$ by lowering or removing the dGPU? Or a version of that) from them.

I think the whole point of this model is the dGPU. If you don't want that you can get the slightly thinner model they make that's nearly the same.

Oh yeah I know. I would absolutely love a Haswell CPU paired with something about as powerful as an 8770M. It's just a matter of price. I'm not saying it's overpriced or anything, just I might not have the money for it.

Essentially, I want to buy a Samsung ultrabook with or without a dGPU as long as it has haswell in it, haha.
