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 agree that ThinkPads aren't what they used to be since Lenovo took over, but my x220 running Arch+Xmonad is miles prettier (and light-years more usable for me) than the OSX setup in my office. :-P

Plus, I still get a Trackpoint/clitoris-mouse so I don't have to take my hands off the keyboard to move the cursor.
