ASUS Zen AiO Pro PCs tout performance in style

ASUS Zen AiO Pro PCs tout performance in style

The back of an all-in-one PC, just like the back of a monitor, is something you hardly always see (unless you have an open desk, that is). And yet ASUS has lavished as much attention to this side of the Zen AiO Pro as much as other details of the PC. Flaunting the OEM's somewhat iconic hairline finish, claimed to have been applied painstakingly by hand, the Zen AiO Pro exudes an amount of elegance you don't always see in its device class. Luckily, its beauty isn't only skin deep.

Asus confirms plans to release HoloLens-like headset in 2016

While it was roughly a month ago when Taiwanese PC maker Asus said it was considering making its own augmented reality (AR) headset, the company has now come right out and confirmed those plans, with an intent to release the product in 2016. Asus was previously engaged in talks with Microsoft to release a cheaper version of the latter's HoloLens, an impressive AR headset scheduled to see release early next year as a developer edition priced at $3,000.

Review: ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser

Review: ASUS ZenFone 2 Laser

ASUS has introduced a new variant of the ZenFone 2, which we reviewed earlier this year. This new variant is called the ZenFone 2 Laser, and it comes with a modest $199 USD starting price, shaving $30 or more off the ZenFone 2’s price tag. The Laser variant is largely the same as the original ZenFone 2 smartphone, but with some small differences, not the least of which is the laser-assisted auto-focus from which the variant gets its name.

Google unveils new ASUS OnHub router

Google has taken the wraps off its second OnHub router, this one coming from ASUS. The first OnHub router, which we’ve previously detailed, was released this past August, bringing with it a more modern and simplified experience. This new model is similar in many ways, featuring a similar — though arguably more sleek - design and simplified functionality, as well as a new gesture-based feature.

ASUS shifts to smartphones, might have a new Nexus soon

ASUS shifts to smartphones, might have a new Nexus soon

ASUS is hardly an underdog when it comes to the the tech world. It is considered one of the top 5 PC vendors in the world and its recent success with the ZenFone 2 has proved that it is a force to contend with in mobile as well. Naturally, the company has its eyes set on even higher things. Chairman Jonney Shih already revealed its aspirations at creating something like Microsoft's HoloLens but apparently that's just the tip of the iceberg of ASUS' plans for future domination, plans that include shifting its focus from notebooks to smartphones.

ASUS unleashes a slew of souped up Windows 10 PCs for gamers

ASUS unleashes a slew of souped up Windows 10 PCs for gamers

Microsoft may have just revealed an interesting crew of Windows 10 devices, both in small and large sizes, but its brochure was marketed more for the common and productive folk. For those who desire a beefier machine meant to withstand the rigors of hardcore gaming, buyers will have to turn elsewhere. Luckily, ASUS just expanded its army of Republic of Gaming or ROG computers, catering to both desktop and laptop gamers alike, combining the muscle of the sixth generation Intel processors with the newfound gaming powers of Windows 10.

Microsoft, ASUS patent pact means more smartphone bloatware

Microsoft, ASUS patent pact means more smartphone bloatware

Microsoft's new mission seems to be to embrace its former enemies, from writing a Linux-based system, to coddling Android users, to catering to Apple fans. Of course, in most cases, it isn't doing so for free. Microsoft may be backing down on some of its patent lawsuits against Android, but in some cases it comes with a price more than just monetary settlement. "Expanding" on a patent licensing accord that the two earlier made, ASUS has agreed to, among other things, pre-install Microsoft's Office apps on its Android devices.

ASUS ZenWatch 2 Review

ASUS ZenWatch 2 Review

The ASUS ZenWatch 2 presents a new wave of Android Wear watch. While it still runs the same software as the rest of the Android Wear smartwatches out today, it begins to differentiate itself. Not just with a slightly different shape (as ASUS presented with the first ZenWatch), but with a different feel, as well. This version of the ZenWatch comes in two sizes, has a singe physical power/home button, and comes in a variety of tasteful colors and materials.

ASUS outs Transformer Book T100HA, Flip TP200SA convertibles

In less than a month, Microsoft might have a new Surface Pro 4 to wow consumers hoping to get their hands on some fancy new 2-in-1 device. But it is unlikely everyone will be able to afford Microsoft's usually high end tablets. For those on a tighter budget but still need productivity in an even more portable form, ASUS is putting out the Transformer Book T100HA and Transformer Book Flip FP200SA, the latest members of its growing line of tablet/laptop hybrids trying to corner the mid-range Windows market.

New ASUS ZenFone 2 is a 4GB RAM smartphone you can afford

New ASUS ZenFone 2 is a 4GB RAM smartphone you can afford

Perhaps inspired by Apple's 16 GB iPhone 6s, ASUS has surprisingly put out a new variant of its ZenFone 2 flagship with a similar amount of internal storage space. But while you might be quick to dismiss this model because of that memory size, better check again. This one touts a generous amount of RAM, now at 4 GB. That's the same trailblazer size that the highest end ZenFone 2 sported. But it is also considerably cheaper than that one, just a little over $200.

With such a small chassis, gamers get the performance they need, but the machine doesn't take up a lot of space on the desk.
