I want to buy a new laptop which I'm going to use mainly for watching movies, write latex documents, using mathematica and programming from time to time.
I am interested in a laptop as lightweight as possible with a good battery life. I was thinking in 13" more or less and I have been recommended the Dell XPS 13 but it is much more expensive in Europe than in the USA. Also, I'm going to install Linux in it as soon as I get it so I don't care about the OS.
Is there any similar and cheaper option? The only other requirement that I have is that I want it to have just a SSD.
