Deals of the Day (7-02-2013)

The Asus Zenbook line of ultrabooks are some of the thinnest, lightest laptops around. But not every Zenbook is created equal — while some have speedy solid state disks and 1080p screens, other models have slower hard drives (with SSD cache drives) and lower-resolution screens.

Today there are some great deals on each — you can pick up a Zenbook UX32A for just $500, or a UX31A for $750 — and that model also comes with a free tablet. It’s not a very good tablet. But it’s free with purchase.

    Just a brief remark: the correct diction is “kaputt” with “tt”, as in “kaputt gehen”, resulting in an emphesized and brief ‘putt’.

    “put’ on the other hand, just like in “Vorhut’, causes the ‘ut’ part to be stretched longer and slightly less pronounced, with emphasis here being on “Vor”.

    Simply FYI 😉

      Noted and corrected. It’s been a long time since I took those two semesters of German in college. :)

      Technically, a bit of internet research suggests that Kaputt is the correct German spelling, but that it’s typically spelled Kaput (as per the Yidish) in English.

        Admittedly, with just only 2 semester you won’t get far with German. That’s a pretty tough nut to crack and luckily I grew up into it 😉

        “Yidish” would be “jiddisch” in German, again the “dd” indicating the brief and emphasized “iddi” part.

        From my perspective here with American English, everybody seems, at least to some degree, making up his/her own rules about how written words have to be put back into sounds and the other way around. I often encounter some rather strange and quite ‘creative’ constructs, often contradicting here, what is used there in the very same way.

        There don’t seem to be clear rules to avoid that confusion 😉
