Unbelieveable! They steal a "large format" 13.3 inch screen and call it ultra-portable! I think not! And then they give it a cheap 1366x768 resolution. That resolution should be on an 11" screen. These resolutions are so VGA 1980's. Shame on them. For a netbook or true ultra-portable at 11" or below it would be passable. But at 13.3", SONY does 1600x900, and IBM does 1440x900. Business users read PDF, excel, Outlook, and NOT chat clients. "x600" or "x768" is insufficient for any productivity laptop.

WTF? "A Scene Switch feature switches between personal and business desktop modes, saving users the hassle of changing desktop and wallpaper settings individually". Who are they kidding? Like business users need to be saved the hassle of changing wallpaper settings. Are ASUS off their rocker? The marketing department has got seriously lost and should be fired.
