Wow, that XPS 13 looks very impressive - if it has a decent keyboard and some user accessible parts then it will be getting serious consideration for a purchase.

If it's the Google one Taps then it will learn - creepy.

That XPS13 looks very nice, still using my M1330 and it's still performing well.

BMW amaze me, they spend time and resources putting a touch screen on a key but can't get the basics right. Even in this day and age of electronic reliability most BMWs still have indicators and hands free kits that don't work.

Wondered what the Chalky was about... But yeah! That XPS13 looks swanky! Top of my list of tech [I won't be able] to buy [now I'm buying a house].

shhh, BMW = MEGA.

but yeah - an app for that would have made a lot more sense. If you can afford 100k bimmer, you can afford a way of getting the status to a phone.

There is already an app. And a smart watch that can start the car. This is just an optional extra that you can use.

That would be a superb digital signage or thin client PC solution.

Yeah, they reckon it would be targeted at small offices who don't need an uber pc. Even an internet cafe could use them to cheaply set something up. There;s i5 and i7 variants in the pipeline apparently, tho obviously at cost. But this, a cheap wireless keyboard/mouse combo and a basic HDMI enabled monitor and you have a cheap workstation! Or a smart TV.

That looks pretty awesome! Got a little distracted by the bum wiggle at 1:18 for a couple of seconds...
