OK so this little beauty came out in may, and I've been keeping an eye on it since it was shown at CES.

It's also worth noting that it's getting an i3 / i5 / i7 THIS month! My questions are:

1. Should I wait for the new processor? The only down sides are that the new processor might chip away at battery life and will obviously cost more. Basically, should I want it?

2. Are there ANY laptops, custom or other wise, that even come close to these specs while still within the 11in-12in form factor?
