Are ASUS laptops good?

My own Asus laptop

Most of my friends and of course my family know I am a computer geek and every now and then they ask me questions on buying their next laptop or PC. Quite often they come with an idea of their forthcoming purchase in mind, having a straightforward inquiry, e.g. “Are ASUS laptops good, ’cause I like the price and the specs of the ASUS brand laptops?“.

Interestingly enough I actually like the Asus brand (the laptop I am using right now is a Zenbook UX31 that was rocket science at the time the model was launched). A decade ago, if you ask a processional for his opinion on Asus laptops, they will try to talk you out of this “ridiculous” idea. They would quote the many problems they’ve met in their practice, such as poor build quality, poor quality of the material, improper fan position, overheating, etc.

But it was a decade ago.

Current situation with quality of Asus laptops

As of today, Asus have managed to build an empire producing tech devices at affordable price – from PC components to high-end gaming laptops (including desktops, laptops, netbooks, mobile phones, networking equipment, monitors, projectors, motherboards, graphics cards, optical storage, multimedia products, peripherals, wearables, servers, workstations, and tablet PCs). Asus received many world awards for their laptops, and introduced a number of new products in the niche of ultra mobile notebooks.

Asus was established in 1989 and was first known as a mainboard supplier for major IT companies (IBM, Intel), but for the last ten years it built a reputation of a producer of a reliable and yet affordable high-tech products.
