ASUS’ Thunderbolt 3 external graphics box is the dream for mobile power-users

ASUS is expanding its range of external graphics docks today with the announcement of the XG Station Pro. Perhaps meant to be the more subtle brother of the gaming-focused ROG XG Station 2, the XG Station Pro's purpose is to bring desktop-level graphics power to your more portable notebook.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus is an odd 18:9 mid-range phone

Not enough ZenFones for you this year? Here’s one more and it’s a strange one at that. The 18:9 screen ratio is often used by smartphone makers to mark their high-end devices.
