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.

Horrible trackpad

Tried on in a shop and it had the most horrible trackpad ever. If you work on a laptop as a laptop you need a good trackpad. And you can say what you want, the Apple trackpads are the best thing ever.

Furthermore, that win7 is better than xp is without a question. If it is better than OS X is another. This is more a personal taste on how you want to use the OS.

Although I think win7 is really the best OS MS has made so far, I personally prefer OS X, even thought Lion has some horrible quirks (FINDER!!!!!!, where are the colors in the icons, etc)

It probably didn't have the latest drivers installed. Not an excuse - the shop's and or Asus' responsiblity - but there you have it. With the proper drivers, it's pretty good (although, as I said in the article, not quite as good as Apple's).
