Hi all, As the title suggest I am kind of in a dilemma as to which laptop to go for ? the new dell xps 13 or sager NP 7338 ? I would like to run archlinux on which ever one i decide to buy. Config info: Dell XPS 13 - (i5-5200, 1080p, Intel 5500, 8gb) , Sager NP 7338 - (i7-4710MQ, 1080p,nvidia gt-860M,8gb) Well I am aware that Sager doesn't fall under the ultrabook category but since my budget is close/max 1K I am wondering which is the best one to get ? I like the Dell XPS 13 looks as its much talked about in CES 2015. Uses for this laptop : Coding (data analysis), Photoshop, web browsing, music,videos Please help me decide :)

For what you're planning on doing, the XPS 13 should be enough. If you ever plan on gaming in the future or want to be future proof for anything, then I recommend spending the extra $150 or so. The GTX 860M is not really needed for coding and such, unless you plan on having monitor hookups. I suggest going with the XPS 13 unless you plan on gaming or anything like that in the future. Hope this helps :)

Edit: I agree that the XPS looks better than the Sager, but I wouldn't let the looks of a laptop decide which you buy entirely.
