What?

I'm looking to upgrade my 7 year old Lenovo laptop before I start grad school this fall. One laptop that has really caught my eye is the UX31a Prime at Best Buy.

I'm not particularly interested in the touch screen but I love the 1080p IPS screen, SSD, 13" screen, and the small form factor. Are there any other laptops out there that offer similar similar features for a similar price? If there is a model with an i7, I might consider paying a little more.

I would play a few games like DOTA2 when I'm out traveling so graphics spec doesn't need to be anything significant, I think the HD4000 graphics will do just fine.

Also, if you think it might be worth waiting till Haswell comes out in larger quantities let me know whether you think I might be able to get a better deal on and Ivy or the Haswell offers significant performance and battery life upgrades.

I'm all ears.

Thanks in advance.
