...loving my Asus Zenbook, although would have hoped it to ship with a Linux variant (one unused Win7 OEM serial code something for sale).

Hmm, 1920x1080, perhaps the best you can hope for these days. Personally, I avoid 16:9 screens; the slightly taller 16:10 (giving 1920x1200) is still a bit letterboxy in a screen that does not rotate.

I think Linus is asking for some real progress in displays, without having to pay Apple prices to get it. If a 10-inch tablet can do 2560x1600 it should not be too hard to get that same resolution (or better) in a laptop.

I'd be happy with having at least 1000 pixels vertically at 13 or 14 inches.
This is already hard to find.

1920x1080 or better 1920x1200 at 13 inches and above would be absolutely ok, I don't really need 2560x1600 or something like that.

I have the late 2011 Asus Zenbook (I think it's an UX31E, can't check right now, my girlfriend is watching a cooking show on it...) and I'm running ubuntu 12.10 (and previsouly 12.04 pre-release and release). It's running fine. Especially now the needed drivers and ACPI fixes are into mainline kernel.

I can get up to 6h of battery use (brigthness 50%, wifi off) using sublime text and listening to music with earbuds. I used to have poor wifi reecption but seems a thing of the past *knock wood*.
