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.

"Mac OS X was miles ahead of the dreadful Windows XP (I hate XP with a passion)"

"When Windows 7 was released, one major advantage of Apple laptops - a better operating system - vanished."

Aren't you exaggerating just a little bit? I agree that Windows 7 is an improvement over Windows XP but please mind the proportions. It's still the same OS. It has been streamlined here and there but the user experience it offers is pretty much the same as the one of XP.

It doesn't stop you from building a story on top of this statements, though, as if the world has changed so much on Windows side. It hasn't, which is precisely the reason why there are still so many XPs around.
