yes please that would be really helpful russell.
andrew i looked at what system76 have: smallest is the 14in @ $699
which means its spec is nowhere near that of the dell xps 13 9350, the
yoga pro or the zenbook(s). the machines you refer to that can do 4k
are monster 15 and 17in, they'll be something insane like 3 possibly
even 4kg in weight: more than twice over the weight budget.
the thing about ultrabooks is that they're quite specialist and
unusual: they're not the sort of thing that you keep around "in stock"
as their components are ridiculously specialist and expensive.
again: if it wasn't for the fact that i'm moving around so much, going
to clients, staying in hotels and so on, i'd be happy to get something
that was "luggable".
but, my requirements really are quite specific: high end QHD+ 13.3in
ultrabooks fit them perfectly.
