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 second that, I am currently shopping for a new laptop (my old fujitsu p1610 is beginning to show its age ... for browsing the web!). As much as I like the ultrabook trend, I think that intel is fucking the linux crowd.
My current candidate are currently the zenbook 11" or the XPS13 (but I have some dislike for Dell), and I'm still researching about their linux friendliness.

As pointed out by one user the resell value could be low, but I tend to keep my stuff for quite a long time, so I would no consider it like a waste of money (although for reference a 2006 macbook still cost ~450 U$ on ebay while my p1610 (out in 2006 in the states) would cost ~100$).
