Is it just me or is the current landscape of laptops pretty awful. Especially as someone who plans to throw linux on as my primary partition. I just can't find anything comparable to what Vaios used to be.
Where are my laptops with full keyboards, large track pad, 15 inch "bezel-less" non-touch non-glare IPS (or now OLED) screens with 1080p resolution (for battery), dedicated GPU that can fall back in the integrated GPU for further battery savings. A laptop that manages to be thin and well ventilated but not extreme to the extent it trims away remaining battery space. More laptops need to be built with magnesium alloy like the Vaios were.
My Vaio also has a CD drive and Disc-based Laptop HDD. Now with those M2 SSDs, and forgoing the CD drive, I don't get why we can't have a 20 hour batter 15 inch laptop in the similar form factor as then thinnest "2012" laptops would have been. Especially with the more efficient CPUs/GPUs that we have now.
