The Asus Zenbook: a steely marvel with an appalling trackpad

From ArsTechnica:

Following the runaway success of the slim and powerful MacBook Air, PC manufacturers have finally arrived on the scene with their own blade-thin models. The Asus Zenbook is one of the first compelling "ultrabooks" and certainly the most striking, with a brushed metal body and clean lines.

While we found the performance of the Zenbook to be unfaltering, it does fall short in a few areas like screen and sound quality (the 11-inch Core i7 we tested is also cheaper than the MacBook Air). But in one key respect it absolutely falls down hard: the trackpad is fickle and barely functional, to the point that using the Zenbook as a primary traveling work machine caused us a good deal of frustration.
