When something isn't "debateable," it's not "moot," so therefore, the screen 1600x900 screen size isn't moot - it is not debateable. Thank you for your time.


http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/moot_point

moot point (plural moot points)

1) An issue that is subject to, or open for discussion or debate; originally, one to be definitively determined by an assembly of the people.

2) (US) An issue regarded as potentially debatable, but no longer practically applicable. Although the idea may still be worth debating and exploring academically, and such discussion may be useful for addressing similar issues in the future, the idea has been rendered irrelevant for the present issue.

I bet you just read the very first definition of the word "moot" on dictionary.com and took it at face value in your post. Thank you for your time.

These non-Apple "ultrabooks" need to lower their prIces badly. They're playing games in the wrong market.

Respectfully, they're not similarly priced. The 13" Air starts at $1300 whereas the XPS 13 starts at $1000. ~25% less for virtually the same thing is a pretty decent reason to go with the XPS. Regardless, I think neither are quite cheap enough (yet).
