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.

Yep, but Tom recommends a Zenbook to his family.

That recommendation is a terrible idea because it's a waste of money.


Some new model Ultrabooks is coming out soon. Dropping the price to around $600. The biggest difference is going to be the aluminum casing is swapped for good quality plastic.
There is also some Ultrabook type laptops coming out this year that is even cheaper. They resemble ultrabooks in sleekness and power but comes with AMD cpu's. It will run the trinity APS's and will bring very thin laptops mainstream.
