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.

I use Thinkpads at work and they're highly overrated (and insanely overpriced).

They're very durable. Period.


They are not what they once were. We bought 10 x220 for our company. Guess how many were flawless only one week after delivery? None.

From backlight bleeding to body cracking and jumpy touchpad whitout forgetting ghosting (yay, ghosting in 2012), this thing is flimsy. It has many many many design flaws known by lenovo. The on-site support is not what it once was either, a technician broke one of our bezel. Lenovo claimed it was an accident and thus not up to them to repair...

Next time we'll try apple.
