I'm a student looking for an ultrabook. Priorities are speed and power, but at no cost to fan noise. Fan Noise is the most annoying thing. The screen and how it looks is also very important. Resolution is almost as important, but moreso how it works as a whole as a screen with the lighting, brightness, and sharpness. Keyboard is also important as is mobility and usefulness. Do you have any advice on what ultrabook I should obtain or whether I should wait for one? and which one? I have no price budget, and am looking for something light, powerful, with low to 0 fan noise. (the lower the better as I have a Sony and the fan noise is incredibly annoying). Please and thank you for your help!
The Asus Zenbook Prime is fast, has an awesome display and a good keyboard. It's also relatively quiet. Dell Ultrabooks and the Sony Vaio T do tend to be either a bit hotter or noisier than other Ultrabooks.

I was looking at the zenbook for a while, but then I read quite a few complaints that the zenbook has loud fan issues. Do you know if this has been fixed or not with a bios update or something else? Because I haven't been able to find a clear answer. I also read some complaints about the keyboard.
Also, which version of the zenbook would you recommend getting?
