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.

MacBooks for the time being...

I wouldn't recommend anything other than a MacBook to anyone right now. For one, Mac OS X is great and Mountain Lion is only making it better.
The hardware is superb; quality, design, reliability.
This is only supported by the fact that I see an overwhelming majority of MacBooks here in the UK, particularly amongst younger people and even more-so in Universities. You can only expect every iteration to get better; ASUS, I wouldn't bet on it...

As for Windows 8, I'll let others speak for me:
