Appreciating ASUS

ASUS Zenfone 3 Base Model

Whilst this posting might make Marcus appear to be a ASUS fanboy pushover I can assure you it is not the case.

ASUS is of course not the perfect vendor, but they do consistently deliver innovation at a very economical price.

I do like their tag line

Luxury on your own terms

Not all of us follow ASUS closely, not all of us are subscribed to their YouTube channel.  In fact you may have missed their 1 hour plus Computex 2016  announcement that I present here:

ASUS Press Event

Saving ASUS or Apple from the sinking Ship
If I had the chance to save ASUS or Apple from the conceptual sinking ship I'd go for ASUS every time

- ASUS consistently produces innovation, so does Apple of course
- Comparable phones which conservatively have 80% plus of the function of a comparable Apple product are selling below 50% or Apple Retail.  That is some feat of Engineering and Business acumen
- They are delivering a real value proposition to their customers
- The Zenfone 3 looks on paper  (both base and delux) models to be another solid performer.  Though I reserve judgement for actual recommendations for at least 2 months (so don't buy now) until detailed testing has been made
 Zenfone 3 models: base (ZE552KL), the premium Zenfone 3 Deluxe (ZS570KL) and the media-consumption focused Zenfone 3 Ultra (ZU680KL).- Engadget's good Zenfone 3 summary page is here

If you have the Time

- I recommend watch the entire ASUS presentation above (1 hour +) or for the three minute summary it is here

- Also check back for Computex 2016 coverage , last day is June 4th 2016, so after that the major tech dailies will present their summaries

Right now this Windows Central page is Computex summary reading
