Jonney Shih is always excited about what he has to show, but this year he had fair reason to be giddy. Alongside a 4K laptop that was 19mm thick, the ASUS boss also revealed its ultimate 5-in1 convergence device.
ASUS' product lineup was unrelenting. Reception space ahead of the event housed six new devices, while the stage show added an additional seven. That's not to mention the company's showfloor space, which had brand new Chromebooks, gaming headsets and more.
Even with products encased in glass, you'd best sharpen your elbows if want to get even close. There were even a handful of masochistic iPad photographers.
They are closing in on all sides. They won't stop coming for an hour. You'd best smile.
"Show us the micro-SD slot."
"No the other side."
Shih's next stage appearance came the next day, at ASUS' ROG PC gaming event. Dressing in the same black polo as the rest of ROG team was a nice touch.
ASUS still wasn't done: two new Steam Machines, a 4K gaming laptop, high-end PC components (and more) were all revealed here.
A quick costume stage to a suit, and the ASUS head is talking up its new slender Transformer Book, called Chih at Intel's big keynote address. It's the first device announced that's powered by Intel's new Core M processor.
ASUS had a stand comparable to Microsoft on the show floor. Alongside tablets and laptops, it also has it's own PC gaming brand, ROG.
There's also the cloud computing enterprise stuff, but we mentally block all that out.
... it can only be ASUS.
Relive the high-pace announcements yourself. If you've not got your ASUS Computex 2014 i-Spy book on hand, you're looking to find: the Transformer Book V, Transformer Book T300 Chi, the Zenbook NX500, ASUS' 4K Monitor, its spikey new Wi-Fi router as well as the latest iterations of the Fonepad and MeMO Pad.
