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.

Very very durable... Considering I've got one from 1999 that I still use. If that isn't worth the price I don't know what is.

I think I get all the ones that suck. I had one from 1999 in 2002. It sucked, couldn't keep itself cool in 65 degree room without extra help in the form of a cooling pad. I had another used one that had dead keyboard keys a few years later. I've actually had better luck with dell laptops, strange as that is. The initial build quality of the thinkpad is far superior.
