ASUS VivoMacBook Looks cool though, if it has the battery life and runs as cool as a macbook I might get one. Also, lol at intel HD graphics why didn't they just use an APU?

APUs are really really weak, show it anything more than web browser and the occasional game and it will start to hyperventilate. At least a low clocked IVB can do something more than that. You lose some gaming capability, but on the other hand still possible to game if you choose your game carefully

Lots of (good) compromises made, for example 768 screen (waiting for an idiot to come by and scream "omg 768 shit screen it needs to die already").

I've never been to Denmark, but from all I've heard about that wretched place, I'll never visit. Nope. Won't even give it a chance. It must be terrible there. No, wait, it IS terrible there. I said so and that's good enough for me!

*Woooosh*
And there it goes. Way over your head...

Seriously though. If you want to call something "crap", at least do try before casting prejudice..

Edit: I assume the SSD is locked to OS only ?

I am afraid to tell you that you are in the wrong section, this is, after all, a budget ultrabook. What is a respectable PPI by the way? The other Asus looks more decent, you might want to check that out

That's more like it, but only want one screen for simplicity sake, and a slightly lower price.
