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.

Only high-quality ThinkPad is the T-series. Everything else is the compromise

I have a t60 that I freaking love. So, I'm inclined to agree with you ;)

I'd argue that X-series are high-quality as well. Yes, there are compromises - but IME there tend to be fewer compromises when compared to other ultraportables in the same size/weight class. And certainly fewer than most netbooks and ultrabooks, where you're typically stuck with compromises like underpowered processors, lack of ports/expandability, RAM soldered to the motherboard, etc.
