I hope either Dell (with the next gen of xps13) or Lenovo (with the x1carbon or the future x280) will make a decent 12~13 inch laptop before my X201 dies.

Unfortunately, "gaymer rigs" are better than "business class" for laptops. So I might eventually consider the 13 inch alienware or the macbook clone from razer if I am sure they will support Linux correctly.

The only non 16:9 laptops I know are macbooks, surfaces and chromebooks, and I'm not 100% sure.
4:3 laptops would be GOAT, but I also think 16:10 is superior to 16:9.
I don't think we can escape 16:9 on laptop without compromising on the components.

Serves a different purpose. XPS owner usually own another more powerful desktop or a heavy laptop with a GPU that they don't want to move around all day everyday.

I have a dell latitude e6440 and it's heavy as fuck. I use a x201 when I have to use a computer outside without needing computational power.

I'm going to soon, but I'm leaning towards the XPS 15, because it can go beyond 8gb of ram (i don't need it now, but I expect to use a computer for a solid 5yrs), and the decent video card would make it so I don't have to entirely give up pc gaming if I ditch my desktop.

as for the 16gb option on the XPS 13, I would prefer not to have the higher resolution display.
