    Zenbooks always look stunning to me. Unfortunately, too rich for my blood. Love the upgraded resolution. Pretty amazing too considering most manufacturers still don't put anything better then a 720P screen in their laptops.

    If you have a small laptop like this "13.3-inch Zenbook UX301", you don't need anything more than 720P. Anything more would practically be over-kill.

    I would rather take the Lenovo Yoga Pro. I have to see the price before I can compare it. Also, if RAID 0 is not optional, but standard, that will be a big blow.

    I can't disagree more, we're already seeing a few more 10in tablets with 1920x1200 or 2560x1600 screens and with 8.1 allowing for better scaling I can see higher resolution being of great benefit instead of just making all the icons and writing tiny.

    You're out of your mind if that's what you honestly think. For a 13" laptop, I honestly wouldn't consider anything below 1920x1080 worth buying, though I'd prefer 2560x1440 or 2560x1600. If I'm going to be stuck with a single screen, it had better have some serious work space available.

    Yes that is what I think and it is true. If you want work space get a larger machine. One that doesn't require you to hold the damn thing 10 inches from your face to see any detail. I don't even have 1080P on my 20" monitor and it has plenty of clarity (aka: pixels per inch) and work space for the greatest number of users. By the way, I measure work space by the screen size not clarity.

    The scaling still sucks xD.

    Lol, that's Microsoft's problem. They have had years upon years to fix it.
