Im a bit confused! I need to buy a laptop soon. Here are my the two final winners on my list : Asus K55VD With Core i7 and Lenovo U410 Ultrabook with Core i5...

Both are good and can be useful for me... Lenovo machine is very light, fast due to the SSD and have longer battery life. I can take it anywhere I like. Some times, I wish I could move away from my PC and write a blog post peacefully. I don't like this chair :p. The Ultrabook is perfect for that. But I need Linux. Lenovo U410 have some issues with Linux. If I need Linux, I need to give up the SSD cache. Thats pointless.

The Asus K55VD is very powerful. I can install both Linux and windows on it without any issues. But, its heavy and bulky. It also doesn't have a good battery life like the Ultrabook.

So, what should I pick? Please help me!

This does sound like a personal choice as you have stated the pros and cons of each and the fact that you need Linux is keeping you from the Lenovo which seems like the better choice.
If you only need the Linux occasionaly then why not load it on a bootable USB stick and use it only when you need it and get the Lenovo.

Thanks :) Any reason for you to say Lenovo is the better choice? Asus not good?

The Asus is the better choice when it comes to hardware (though this lessens dramatically if that i7 isn't a "QM" - then they're both overpriced dual-cores.)

Honestly, I'd keep looking around for either a different laptop that suits your needs... or a different chair. :p
