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.

And Macbooks don't have their cooling vents on the underside (some don't have any at all..) meaning you can put it on something (say, your lap) and not be worried about cooking your graphics chip or something like that. The general Apple laptop hardware still has the edge by quite a margin for me, though I haven't used an ultrabook in anger yet...
