    Asus Takes on the Microsoft Surface With the Transformer 3 and Transformer 3 Pro (Hands-On)

    If the ZenBook 3 was Asus’ shot at Apple’s MacBook, their new Transformer 2-in-1s are definitely shots at Microsoft’s Surface and Surface Pro.

It’s clear from the press event […]

    Putting Chrome OS on a stick PC is tricky — Chromebooks have carved out a nice niche in the notebook market by being noticeably cheaper, compensating for the limits to usefulness, like not being able to run third party programs.

    Asus Goes Even Cheaper With the ZenFone 2E

    We’re big fans of the ZenFone 2, Asus’ low-cost phone that doesn’t fall too short of a flagship. The ZenFone 2E doesn’t pretend to be anywhere near a flagship, but at an even lower price, it’s looking like another great value.
