ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 promises a middle ground

ASUS Chromebook Flip C434 promises a middle ground

Chromebooks started out as underpowered descendants of the ill-fated netbook line but, thanks partly to Google, they have started reaching for the top. Unfortunately, Chromebooks now seem to sit on opposite ends of both features and price spectrums. The ASUS Chromebook Flip C434, which almost passed unnoticed, wants to be the outlier. ASUS claims it offers a middle ground between the two extremes, delivering power and style in what is hopefully a still affordable price.

ASUS ZenBook, StudioBook, ROG laptops: the CES 2019 roundup

Asus announces Chrome OS tablet alongside refreshed Chomebooks

Asus announces Chrome OS tablet alongside refreshed Chomebooks

Chrome OS has been most successful in schools, powering low-cost, reliable devices for students. Asus has produced several Chromebook models aimed at the classroom, and now the company has updated its lineup with an interesting new addition: its first Chrome OS tablet. With a 9.7-inch touchscreen display, the Asus' CT100 seems perfectly geared for younger kids who prefer to touch over type, and it's reinforced to survive classroom abuse.

ASUS Mini PC ProArt PA90 tower PC almost looks familiar

ASUS Mini PC ProArt PA90 tower PC almost looks familiar

When Apple put out the new Mac Pro design in 2013, it was largely ridiculed for using a design reminiscent of a trash can. But like anything Apple, that design eventually became accepted and even imitated. Since then, lots of odd looking desktop towers have popped up, mixing power, smaller space footprints, and their OEMs own brand of “elegance”. The ASUS Mini PC ProArt PA90 is one such new computer though it might not look like it. While it may not look like a trash can, it does look slightly similar to a smart speaker, an air cooler, or, OK, even some trash bins.

New ASUS Chromebooks are built for tough school life

Life in school can be tough, and not just for humans. From notebooks to calculators to laptops, the use and abuse our school supplies go through require them to be just as tough. That’s especially true for gadgets that are becoming even more commonplace in academic institutions these days. And these days, Google’s Chrome OS is rising to be the favored platform and ASUS’ new line of touch Chromebooks, which includes a tablet, will be rolling out to fulfill those need.

ASUS ROG Phone teardown reveals curious design

ASUS ROG Phone durability puts on the heat and the pressure

ASUS ROG Phone durability puts on the heat and the pressure

Gamers can be an unforgiving bunch. PC gamers especially expected their rigs to take anything thrown at them with aplomb. Mobile gamers are also starting to expect more from their smartphones and ASUS promises its ROG Phone, which could eventually replace its ZenFones, can take the heat. But can it take other kinds of stress? Fortunately, there’s exactly a man for that job.

ASUS ZenFone fate hangs in the balance as CEO resigns

ASUS ZenFone fate hangs in the balance as CEO resigns

ASUS may not be as a big a name in the smartphone market but it has achieved one thing few off its competitors have not. Its name has not been dragged in any major scandal or problems in the past years the likes of Samsung, HTC, and even LG have been subjected to. That said, business hasn’t exactly been thriving, at least on the mobile front. So it is both surprising and yet expected that Jerry Shen, ASUS’ CEO for the past 11 years, is finally stepping down. But with his departure comes questions about the fate of the company’s phones.

Asus ZenFone 6 leak teases one very unusual notch

The notch may be a fact of life in modern smartphone design right now, but Asus isn't convinced it has to be in the center of the display. The upcoming Asus ZenFone 6 has reportedly leaked today, and while the phone-maker is following the crowd in slimming down bezels and devoting even more of the front of the handset to touchscreen, the way it's doing it is conspicuously different.

ASUS Chromebook C523 ventures into 15-inch territory

ASUS Chromebook C523 ventures into 15-inch territory

Barely two weeks ago, right around Google’s event, ASUS silently announced the Chromebook C423. Now it has done it again, not really announcing the Chromebook C523. The similarity in the name isn’t accidental. The two are, in many ways, identical. Both come in a traditional laptop form factor at a time when Chrome OS tablets seem to be the new trend. The difference is that the Chromebook C523 is larger than the C423. Not by much but enough to be ASUS’ first ever 15-inch Chromebook.

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

ASUS Zen AiO 27 opens its base, gets versatile

Normally I'd never say an all-in-one machine was "versatile" in basically any respect - they're supposed to be made to be easy to use, primarily. The ASUS Zen AiO seems to be something different. I've not yet gotten my hands on one, so I'm not certain how well it lives up to its claims, but it would appear that it's designed to look nice at the same time as it offers easy access to its innards - that's pretty rare.

ASUS ROG Phone US pre-order available now, shipping next week

Mobile gamers take note. If you are still in the market for this year’s ultimate gaming phone, then your choice has just gotten a bit more complicated and more expensive. Perhaps one of the most eccentric smartphone this year, next to the elevating cameras, of course, the ASUS ROG Phone is making an appeal to PC gamers who want to experience the same look and feel on mobile as they do on their desktops and laptops. But while the ROG Phone may indeed be able to deliver, it’s an experience that won’t come cheap.
