Asus Transformer Book T300 Chi: the latest 2-in-1 to use Intel Core M processing

First there was the Asus Taichi: a laptop featuring screens on both sides of lid, and one of the more interesting 2-in1 designs we’ve seen. Now there is simply the Chi: a 2-in-1 laptop featuring one screen, but a removable one so that you can use it as a tablet or as a laptop whenever […]

Asus G501 offers 4K, new GeForce, PCIe SSD and even Thunderbolt in superthin case

The laptop world we live in dictates that as weight drops and dimensions shrink, capability get squeezed out of the picture.� That’s the fine line Asus has to walk with its new G501 gaming laptop, which boasts a tour de force of check-off features while remaining impressively svelte.

Asus N550JV review: high-performance midrange laptop, with an abominable touchscreen display and slow hard disk

Price: 800 Rating: 7 Asus laptops have come a long way since the Eee PC series, which effectively pioneered the netbook category in 2007. Emboldened by that success, Asus subsequently pitched into the mainstream Microsoft mêlée where it is now just another maker of carbon-copied Windows laptops. The Asus N550JV tries to be a little […]

Asus X751L review: large-screen budget laptop has decent CPU, storage capacity and memory

Price: 450 Rating: 6 With its 17.3-inch widescreen display, not to mention its quite substantial 2.6 kg weight, the Asus X715L falls into the laptop category we’d call ‘desktop replacement PC’. The large glossy screen with its slightly improved image quality make it more useful as a entertainment computer, even if graphics performance may limit […]

Asus C300M review: a bigger 13in Chromebook that’s decent value – if you like the colours

Price: £250 inc VAT Rating: 8 If the smaller screen sizes of most Chromebooks lack the kind of real estate you prefer, then the Asus C300M might be a more attractive option. Although its little brother (the C200) has a ‘standard’ 11.6in display, the C300 expands the vista to 13in, making this model one of […]

Asus G550JK review: strong, smart laptop with a great screen and comfortable keyboard

Price: 1099 Rating: 8 There’s been a shift in gaming laptops, with bulky, expensive systems being challenged by leaner, cheaper laptops.

Asus outs svelte, aluminum Zenbook UX305 and the EeeBook, a $199 Chromebook killer

Price: 599 Rating: 7 The X500 range from Asus is designed to provide affordable laptops at ‘everyday’ prices.

Price: £1,769.99 inc VAT Rating: 9 This flagship model from Asus’ Republic of Gamers range is one of the most expensive gaming laptops we’ve seen recently, coming in at almost £1800.

Asus Zenbook UX301LA review: a stylish 13.3-inch touchscreen Ultrabook

Price: �1439 inc VAT Rating: 7 With the Zenbook line, Asus has intentionally copied many design aspects of Apple’s MacBook Air, such as its familiar wedge shape, chiclet-style keys, surrounded by a smooth ceramic material, and roomy trackpad.
