It looks like the X1 carbon doesn't ship with a chip >15W. I guess a 28W GT3 Haswell dual core is kind of out of the question for light ultrabooks isn't it?

The Asus Zenbook Infinity will reportedly be shipping with a GT3 chip,

It's Gorilla Glass 3, which Corning claims is harder than sapphire. I guess that doesn't really matter if you drop it on the corner, though.

I didn't know sapphire is actually rated a 9 on Moh's hardness scale - the same as tungsten carbide!

I just looked at the 11 inch model of that, and it's almost perfect, except they don't offer a processor option with the GT3 GPU configuration. Anyone know if the laptop I'm looking for exists yet? (probably not I'm really picky)

-Small; 11.6" is ideal, up to 14" acceptable
-under 3 pounds
-IPS panel with a minimum resolution of 1080p
-haswell with GT3 GPU configuration

I've seen a few things that are almost there, but nothing perfect. Am I out of luck? I don't care what it costs.

MBA has GT3. Otherwise the Asus Zenbook Infinity which will be out later this year.

For ultrabooks with removable HDDs, what is the best SSD to replace them with?

Seriously looking at getting a Yoga 2 Pro - if you bought it when it came out and have used it every day - are you still happy with the purchase? or are there one or two infuriating things about it that drive you mental?

Yeah I was afraid someone was going to post a glowing review like that. Thanks.

FWIW I haven't had a single wifi issue to date with my Y2P.

I think my post came off as being sarcastic when it wasn't. Definitely looking to pick up one of the orange ones.
