    Hi, yet again thread like that :)
    What I'm searching for is 12-14" screen, it would be moved a lot so bulit quality have to be perfect top notch. My 2 previous ultrabook just broke one after 2 years and one after 1.5 year (one was platic toshiba second metal/plastic hp). I'm searching for something with good hindges and case (this 2 things failed me twice). I hope the next one will last at least 4-5 years so I am adding extra budget which is 1500 euro but can go more if something is really interesting. My thoughts were:
    -razer blade stealth 2017
    -dell xps 13 9060 or 9065 ( how this 360 hindges work in real usage? It leaks neat and something I would have use for)
    -hp spectre x360 (?)
    -macbook air ( not really fan of ios I would have to install win10)
    Something diffrent? Maybe windows surface . Im looking for 12-14 good screen , nice if it has touch screen, at least 8gb ram and 256 ssd portable small and good build quality. Help me choose please

    AMD Ryzen has just come out for mobile, worth waiting a few days to see the full pricing and hopefully it'll push some of the Intel laptops a bit more.

    Well I don't have time, need it pretty soon as last one broke down completely. I do not even have a time to wait for 8th generation of intel which isn't yet avable in Poland :)

    I am thinking about microsoft surface pro 2017 especially about i7 8gb ram 256gb ssd edition as I can get one with keyboard for around 1750 euro so its pretty good deal in my country

    The Dell XPS 13 might be worth a look.

    Yeah, was also thinking about xps but Im struggling which one to take from xps 13 9360 or 9365(I'm thinking also eventually about buying 9360 and buying ipad or something as tablet). I am driving today to seller in my city who has fives 9360 i7 16gb and 512 in very good price because for 1380 euro which is lower than my budget which is good - problem is they are from dell outlet but if they look good and do not have any scratches and so on I will probably take one.

    Ended buying xps 13 9060. I show it and liked it, but ended buying from different seller for like 5 euro more with free shipping but the local one was so rude and vulgar I say fuck you man will take my money elsewhere.
