Asus Asus - Introduction
ASUS is a Taiwan-based multinational computer hardware and consumer electronics company founded in 1989. Asus creates products for the smart life of today and tomorrow. Asus is the world's number one motherboard and gaming brand, as well as a top three consumer brand. Notebook vendor ASUS became widely known in North America when it revolutionized the PC industry in 2007 with its Eee PC™. Today, the company is pioneering new mobile trends with the ASUS ZenFone™ series, and it is rapidly developing virtual and augmented reality products, as well as IOT devices and robotics technologies.
Most recently, Asus introduced Zenbo, a smart home robot designed to help, entertain and be friends with families.
In 2015 and 2016, Fortune magazine recognized ASUS as one of the world's most admired companies, and for the past four years, Interbrand has ranked ASUS Taiwan's most valuable international brand. The company has more than 17,000 employees, including a world-class R&D team. Committed to innovation and quality, Asus won 4,385 awards and generated approximately $13.3 billion in revenue in 2016.
ASUS notebooks are tested in the most punishing conditions and in the most exotic locations. Many incredible feats have become legends. We take a closer look at the achievements that left an indelible mark on history Two Asus notebooks were selected by R&K - the main supplier of computers and electronics for aeronautical missions in space - to provide astronauts with reliable computing during their mission on the MIR space station. Both notebooks had zero defects for 600 days. "ASUS notebooks never got as hot as some other companies made," the thermal flow in space and on Earth is completely different. Only notebooks with the best heat dissipation solutions can survive continuous operation.
ASUS notebooks serve various sectors including aviation, medical treatment and administration. ASUS notebooks play a special role in the CareFlight program, which aims to improve survival rates in severe head injury crashes. With the help of mobile computing, CareFlight can get a medical team to the scene faster than a local ambulance, and this new program is expected to reduce head injury deaths by 33%.
"All of our pilots were very impressed with the ASUS M5 laptops and were amazed at their ability to withstand the vibrations of the aircraft," said Mark Lees, CareFlight's public relations manager. “We are now ready to install ASUS M5 laptops in all our aircraft and connect them to the on-board navigation computers.
Asus in difficult tasks
“Asus notebooks were chosen to perform critical tasks during the PATAGONIA 2000 race, where computers were used in hot deserts and snow-covered mountains.
One of the main tasks was the use of navigation devices, which distinguished them due to the built-in satellite GPS functionality and the ability to display dynamic maps. They also served as communication hubs, allowing both email communication and two-way video conferencing.
"Certainly, the ASUS computers survived the harsh conditions of this grueling trip without a single flaw," said Aviv Shweki, race organizer. The harsh conditions at the top of the world's highest mountain can trouble other notebooks, but not ASUS. A range of Asus notebooks – including the U5, S6 (both leather and bamboo editions), W7 and U1 – were chosen to accompany a team of climbers on an expedition to reach Mount Everest, as the locals call it in Tibet. Qomolangma Peak.
By the time we got to base camp at an altitude of 5,000 meters, only the ASUS notebooks continued to work. Other notebooks failed to boot due to extremely low ambient temperatures. ASUS U5 even reached the astonishing height of Qomolangma Peak at 8,848.43m, thanks to expedition leader Captain Wang Yongfong, who took it with him as a mark of respect for the eco-friendly technology that made ASUS notebooks the world's first to summit Mount Everest. Asus notebooks have in some cases proven to function perfectly in the freezing temperatures of the North and South Poles.
An outstanding expedition
The most memorable of these expeditions took place on December 16, 2003, when famed mountaineers Shi Wang and Jian Liu set out to climb Mount Vinson, Antarctica's highest peak at 16,000 feet and temperatures as low as -100˚F. Wang and Liu each brought an ASUS S200N notebook to record and share their experiences during the expedition. The S200N perfectly met their needs: it was light and compact, had a large hard drive capacity, and could handle the rigors of climbing the mountain. ''They worked without interruption in extreme conditions and severe weather. It was nice to have a notebook that I could count on in situations where failure is intolerable," said Wang. ASUS is a state-of-the-art powerful notebook that should definitely be your companion.
