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. This machine is appealing to the Ultrabook customer who wants exceptional multimedia performance. Thank you Asus.

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.
