  2. Is there a big difference between a traditional drive and a hybrid drive? Do the hybrid drives require special setup / drivers?

    ^ Sometimes good technology loses. When netbooks were first hitting it big, Via had chips that were competitive if not better than Intel's Nano. But nobody put them in their netbooks.

    Ultrabooks are sponsored by Intel.
  6. The Zenbook is NOT a gaming machine, why does the author of the article work so hard to point out that it won't be great for gaming? Asus is churning out GREAT products, with enormous variety.....I hit "Asus news" in search every week and ever week they have something new and well done.

    Also, If you were a linux user you would know that there is no official support for the Nvidia Optimus technology there and it would cause further battery drain on linux.
  8. Because you can't benefit from a graphics card over integrated graphics in other departments like video and photo editing, right?
