I have been waiting for the AMD Llano or Trinity version of it. I like ultrabooks, but good graphics performance is necessary.

I thought XPS branding is for gamers, I pretty much surprised when I read 'XPS' and 'Ultrabook' in a sentence and thought they would somehow crammed a dedicated GPU for gaming. Looks like it isn't
