Don't get your hopes up.... most potential haswell laptops haven't been announced yet... If you looked at last year's ultrabooks, alot of them haven't been refreshed yet with a haswell processor. My guess is most of the PC makers are trying to optimize their systems and beat the Macbook Air in term of battery life.

Two haswell laptops that come to mind and may be available at the Comex are the Sony Viao T and the Dell XPS 12. I'm sure there will be a few others too but the main bulk probably won't come until the year end or the march computer show.

Now that you mention it, maybe all the PC makers for waiting to release their products right before the holiday period for the greatest impact.

I think they better dun wait, if they do realise the tablet is "eating" up the notebook market share.....

I am looking for a notebook because my new company let me get one for the work, otherwise, I will just get a tablet.

Why not consider aftershock, it may be a gamer brand but its one of the most best bang for buck laptop brands out there.

Will I be shocked badly after getting it?

I need it boot up in seconds (so need to have SSD), and the screen need to support touch.

TS, just get a macbook air. 12 hours battery life with haswell chip!

Looks beautiful too!

Reviews say that on bootcamp, it also runs for a pretty good 11-12 hours!

Yeah... laugh all you want... until you have it, and it is loaded with Windows 8.
