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.

Thanks to the ZenBook, I'm no longer recommending MacBooks


It might be the case if you want an "ultrabook" and if you like Windows.
If you want a "proper" notebook (with DVD-writer and every other comfort) and if you don't like Windows, I am not aware of notebooks comparable to 15" and 17" MacBooks Pro.
Personally I'd also buy a MacBook Pro 13" rather than a MacBook Air or an ultrabook. Obviously size and weight are slightly in favour of the latter, but personally I don't care.
