ASUS recently launched its third generation of products in Singapore, which include a souped-up ultrabook, a tablet-laptop hybrid and a smartwatch, and we dare say that they might be the best tech in each class for this generation.
To spread the technological gospel, we held an exclusive evening at co-working space The Great Room offices, at the outskirts of the Central Business District, and invited a number of our readers and A-Listers to test these new ASUS products out. Everyone had a great time testing out the VR capabilities of the ASUS desktops while indulging in a spot of gaming. Who knew a digital mountain goat could elicit so much joy from grown men and women?
And blokes being blokes, there was banter and good-natured ribbing at the FIFA 17 station, being played on the ASUS Transformer 3 Pro. The tablet-laptop hybrid might look deceptively normal but it can transform into a powerful beast when attached to the ROG XG Station 2.
The new ASUS ZenWatch 3 and ZenPad 8.0 were also on display, and guests were naturally intrigued by the capabilities of these products. It was like being a kid in a candy store except that eating too much won’t give you diabetes, just intense longing for the ASUS tech items.
But the star of the show was the ASUS ZenBook 3. Weighing only 910 grams, this beautiful ultrabook is impossibly powerful. The engineers had to design the internal components from the ground up just to make sure it fit into the slim chassis. It is an engineering and design marvel, and is a demonstration of ASUS’s pursuit of perfection.
And for those who had questions about all the products, the global PR manager for ASUS Andrew Chan was on hand to answer as much as he could. But he too was busy trying to manoeuvre a mountain goat up a virtual hill while avoiding boulders and other obstacles.
Check out what else went down that evening in the video above.
