    What's the best developers 12-14" laptop?

    Hey,

    I'm looking for a laptop, and have been eyeing up a Dell XPS 13 but was wondering if you guys knew about anything better than that? I don't really have a budget, under £2,000 would be nice but not necessary.

    I do a lot of different types of development, will watch films and will sometimes play games on it. Essentials are good screen, lots of RAM, HDMI out, decent CPU, bluetooth, built-in 3g mobile web card.

    Anyone have any good ideas?

    Thanks,

    Martyn

    TBH I'd tend to avoid going for a top spec CPU, and spend the savings on an SSD.
