    Steam Stream feature depends upon network speed and latency.

    I want to see how the 3rd-party Linux based firmware perform.
    DSL Reports did a great series on this:

    They are about 2 years old now, but should yield some good insights.

            From what I have read Broadwell laptops are not expected until the 2nd half of 2014, so I don't think it's that close.

              I own an 1 year old Dell Inspiron (with an AMD dedicated card in complement to the intel hd graphics),
              and it works well with Linux. The screen is full HD (15") and is of high quality.

              If you take a high end laptop with intel Haswell, I imagine that for a few more money, you can get the same with a dedicated card (in complement to the intel hd graphics).
              Buying such a laptop would allow you to make tests of Optimus or hybrid graphics (power comsumption, comparative performance to if the card was on a desktop pc).

              I think the dedicated card has to be mid or high level (I don't understand the point of having a poor performance dedicated card).

                Zenbook infinity

                You should give the Asus UX301LA-DH71T a try.

                  Dell Venue 11 Pro with the keyboard-hinge cover for sure -- it's a better Surface Pro for $600 (if Bay Trail performance is acceptable to you).

                  Apparently the touchscreen isn't working yet, but I'd really love to see these supported... http://www.happyassassin.net/2013/11...-pro-bay-trail

                    Exactly!

                    edit: the thumbsdown icon was by mistake. I wanted to put a thumbsup one

                        I'd like to see something Bay Trail based, a chromebook or other low cost notebook (with touch)

                            HP Spectre 13-h200ef X2 (hybrid laptop and tablet)

                            The HP Spectre 13-h200 X2 is an interesting laptop and tablet (it's a fanless machine with a haswell intel processor and a fullHD 13"3 IPS touch screen). There are currently some backlight issue on linux though...

                              I can tell you anything you need to know about that one, I'm using it.

                              Essentially everything is fine except I haven't gotten the discrete card to do jack, so I just turn it off with acpi_call.

                                Ask away, I have one. Everythings great except I never figured out or cared enough to make the discrete card do jack, so I just shut it off with acpi_call. Any ideas? I imagine even if I got it rendering something though I'd be better off with the results from the Intel :P
