Hardware, Embedded Systems For years and years now (since the first G4 iBooks), whenever someone asked me for advice about what laptop to buy, my standard answer was simple: get an Apple laptop. Doesn't matter which one. Apple was so far ahead of the competition it just wasn't funny anymore. This past weekend, though, marked the end of an era for me: for the first time, I advised someone to get an Asus ZenBook instead.

Zenbook prices are on par with Macbook Air prices. So what's the point to buy an Asus?

Asus is a commodity hardware vendor with commodity re-sale prices. Apple re-sale prices are always very high.

A 2 years old Macbook Air has a higher sale price than a 1 month old Zenbook.

If you love Windows 7 so much... just use bootcamp. Buying a premium price PC is a waste of money.
