I'm weighing options for a new 13in laptop. my current options are: Dell XPS13 Pros: under $1300 Cons: GPU power Alienware 13 Pros: 2560x1440 display, GPU Cons: $1500, no i7 option yet MacBook Pro 13 Retina Pros: Aluminum body, display resolution, better GPU than the XPS Cons: Price (1700 how I want it), GPU not as good as the Alienware I'm OS agnostic so I can use Windows or OS X just as easily. I just cant decide. The Alienware JUST launched today and I assume the MB and XPS will refresh soon. I have a couple of weeks before needing a new machine will be more critical, but if I'd be waiting more than 2 months then I'll just get what ever is available then.
