    I think I'll stick with my rMBP...

    I feel so sorry for the people who will buy a HiDPI display and will run Windows exclusively.

    You've got to wonder why you keep hearing about these new 4K laptops and than don't hear about htem after release.

    What's so great about 4k any way? The retina display is fabulous as it is. I would like to see a mobile GPU that can run at a temperature below boiling point while it's trying to pump out all those pixels.

    Can one even game at a decent FPS at 4K res with any of the mobile GTX GPUs?
    I was informed on the 600series cards but not the 700, they're still Kepler right?

    Which 4k laptops have been released?

    The irony is there's probably not many games this thing will be able to run at 4k resolution. Even if they do stick a 780 in there which is unlikely. An interesting unit though. Lenovo has been hemorrhaging reputation over the new thinkpad models due to keyboard changes and alleged corner cutting on quality/materials. Hopefully the Y series doesn't suffer the same fate.

    They may have done away with the optical disc drive, but they're still on the same level thickness wise as the pre-retina Macbook Pro WITH an optical disc drive... Also price wise we're probably looking at something a step above the 15", but we don't know yet as the only stuff they've priced are the low end ones that compete more with the Macbook Air.

    Looks like it'll be Maxwell 860m

    ----------

    the pre retinas were less than 1 inch thick?

    Are we into the 800's already? Damn.. but that makes sense. I think my assumption came from the recent announcement that the 750 Ti is running the Maxwell architecture.
