Ooooh the top end extreme mobile chip in a thin laptop? Major x86 performance which I prefer over more GPU power. Intel XTU allows full overclocking of extreme CPU within windows of this laptop plz!!?

@Menigmand comes with 120w AC adapter, might not handle a top end CPU + higher end GPU all at once not to mention the laptop's cooling system.

I guess no backlit keyboard, and no subwoofer

3.6TB of storage? I think with no optical drive but 2 mSATA SSDs you can have 2TB hard drive + 2x1TB mSATA SSDs totalling 4TB.
With 2 SATA slots with the optical bay you can have 4TB, with 3 you can have 6TB, though these would all have to be mechanical/hybrid drives and no solid state. The Samsung M9T is regular thickness and 2TB but not hybrid yet.
In the future of course capacity is nearly endless until the interfaces become obsolete.

This would be a great laptop for many people, including me. it is the fact that it doesn't come with Windows already in the price that makes it not worth it for me to buy. At $899 CAD it is decent pricing only if it included Windows.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I was serious. At the VERY least, bring back 1920x1200, which my 6 year old Dell E6500 has. And bring back 1600x1200 too for that matter.

I own a 1440p monitor and I couldn't imagine that resolution on a 15" laptop. The results as I see it would be decreased battery life, increased heat output, lower FPS in games, and a difficult to read screen. I can see why you would want more 1920x1200 laptops. I really dislike that 1080p has taken over everything. 3k, however, seems like it would introduce more problems than it would solve. This reminds me of phone manufacturers wanting to make 1440p phones. 1080p is already unnecessary. I wish phone manufacturers would go back to 720p displays on phones. I don't like having my Nexus 5 only last a day because the screen is taking up half of the battery. Also, I apologize for the double post, this commenting system is awful.

I think that 1920x1080 is a good resolution for a laptop, as really it gives the right amount of screen space. I am currently using a 1024x1080 19" screen as my main, and it lacks the horizontal pixels my 15" 1366x768 lappy has, but makes it up in vertical. As for 720p phones I can agree on that, my SII has 640x480 and still looks pretty decent for picture quality.
