New ASUS Laptops 2016
From their humble beginnings ASUS has always been one of the top brand names in the computer hardware market. Instead of creating cheap products, they have consistently delivered quality products. That is why I use an ASUS laptop and can recommend the brand to my readers.
ASUS do make other products but they are perhaps best known for their laptops and netbooks.
I have selected 4 of ASUS laptops that where designed for different uses and shortly reviewed them in new ASUS laptops 2016. I look at the A52F-XA1 which is a mid power and mid cost model, the U35D-X1 a very small very portable laptop, the N53JQ-XV1 a high end powerful laptop and then I end the article with a large powerful gaming laptop.
