    ASUS believes a woman with a computer is better than a woman with a kitten

    Welcome to another episode of Social Media Managers Who Are Having a Bad Day. On todays episode we present Asus‘ assertion that a “cute girl” with a cat worse than a “sophisticated lady” with a Zenbook 3(tm) laptop.

    ASUS’s Zenvolution event features four upcoming devices and one awkward portmanteau

    Zenvolution doesn’t really roll off the tongue. But hey, you come for the gadgets – the clever word play is really just a bonus, at best. And the company certainly has a lot to showcase on that front, covering all of the requisite bases with a new laptop, phone, tablet and watch. Let’s start with the notebook and go from there, shall we? The company’s got a new version… Read More

    ASUS shows off a portable 15-inch display for laptop owners

    The ZenScreen is a strange, but intriguing duck. It’s not a tablet or a convertible notebook, it’s a 15.6-inch portable screen. That mean it’s not a standalone device so much as it is an extra display designed to offer laptop users additional real estate on the go, connect to a primary device via USB-A or C. ASUS is really pushing the portability factor here, and with a… Read More

    The $599 ASUS Zenbo robot is just trying to help out around the house

    ASUS is going big at Computex this year with the launch of new additions to ZenBook, Transformer and ZenFone lines. But the biggest new piece to the company’s unfortunately named “Zenvolution” puzzle is this bright-eyed little guy who’s something along the lines of a cross between Wall-E and Sico, the robotic butler who had a fairly unsettling relationship with… Read More

    Google And ASUS Team Up On A Router With A Nifty Twist

    Google wants you to be able to consume more, and faster, which is why they built the OnHub router that they announced in August. We were a bit surprised by the move, but not shocked, with Google saying it wanted to “give you Wi-Fi that’s fast, secure, and easy to use.” Read More

  • WatchTF, Asus?

    WatchTF, Asus?

    It’s fairly common practice for cheaper manufacturers to ape more expensive “premium” brands as soon as it’s clear that customer sentiment is headed in a certain direction. This week at Computex, however, Asus dumped a doozy. Take a look at the above video. It’s like a mad-eyed parody of an Apple Watch advertisement. The watches bands look cheap and derivative… Read More

    Asus Republic Of Gamers G551LM Gaming Notebook Review

    Gaming laptops are a hard needle to thread. On the one hand, you need something that’s portable enough to be considered an actual laptop. On the other, you need it to have enough power to handle some of the latest and greatest games available for PCs, and not at minimum graphics settings (which doesn’t count). Plus, it’s always nice if the computer also doesn’t look… Read More
