The second wave of 2013 Laptops has begun. Lets see how the other big boys respond. I'm betting on Dell, being next. Sony, and Toshiba seem done though for '13. grr.
As for this laptop, I hope it is true. Of course there must be an i7 option, which I need. (I need a powerful laptop that would last me long.) Also, I'd personally wait for the Win 8.1 preloaded version, for less hassle.
Personally, I'd prefer a 17in or 15in screen to leverage that kind of resolution if it still is somewhat light and has long battery life, but I think for most people, the Book 0 Plus is pretty good except for the pricing.
