Asus offers a very wide range of laptops which sit in three categories: budget, premium and gaming. The companies designing team is exemplary with some super sexy systems.
The ROG Zephyrus is a truly stunning machine, that is super-thin and is a must-explore at for any serious gamer. However, be wary of the tedious customer tech support hold times and the difficult to use company website.
- Design: Asus has great design options - simple! Whether it be minimalist consumer notebooks or the Zephyrus which is a gorgeous gaming rig.
- Bang for Buck: Asus will cater for your budget - not matter what it is. From entry-level VivoBooks to premium ZenBooks, Asus has got you covered.
- Support: The website is messy and confusing and the average waiting time for tech support is frankly, disappointing.
- Shipping Costs: If your laptop hits the brakes, it will be you paying to ship it back, even under warrantee. Not cool!
Asus sells some cool Chromebooks, including the sleek and hardy C213SA that is aimed at school kids and the hipster 2-in-1 like the Flip C101PA.
Asus is also premier league when it comes to gaming rigs, given its ability to cover a range of prices and tastes. The entry point is the Strix line with options like the £1k ROG Strix GL503 with its Core i7, right up to the flagship Zephyrus that retails at circa £2500 with its GT 1080 Max-Q, G-sync display and uber-think design.
The only real letdown for Asus is their lacking of compelling business range.
