New gear for the 2012 release cycle (and beyond)

Two years ago, my boss decided to outfit me with the tools I needed to give presentations and demo features in Windows and Windows Server. Back then, the tool of choice was a Dell Latitude E6500. The full specifications of the work horse I used the past two years can be found here.

Today, I received a new device to use as both my day-to-day laptop and demo station for the next two years:
