I received an XPS 13 yesterday!

So far, I haven't seen any problems from it.  Intel's video is quite 
standard, and works as expected.  WiFi is working.  I've set up a few 
VMs under Linux KVM with virt-manager.  Media keys all work properly, as 
does the OSD.  The touchpad works as expected.  I got around 6 hours of 
battery life from it yesterday under use that included periods of heavy 
activity (including the CPU, disk and WiFi access required to install 
multiple server VMs on an encrypted volume group).  I haven't tried to 
use the DisplayPort output or BlueTooth, but the latter is at least 
correctly detected on boot.
