Broken Page on Google Chrome[edit]

I have been on a few wikipedia pages, and this page appears to be vandalized with some odd code that generates a very long line break. Sonicdude558 (talk) 00:35, 2 March 2015 (UTC)

No mention of the Eee PC[edit]

Why is this? It's probably Asus's most known product outside of motherboards, is notable for being a mass-produced commercial device running linux and it's not mentioned?! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.81.36.9 (talk) 09:34, 7 February 2008 (UTC)

Queen's University Link[edit]

I don't think this link belongs; it's not even the title of the article to which it links. I don't think anyone would reasonably expect that their student government would be confused with ASUSTeK. Furthermore, I accessed the page as /Asus and not /ASUS I think the Arts and Science Undergraduate Society is not notable, and nominate the link for removal. 137.22.99.185 (talk) 19:27, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Lack of information about origins and status as a motherboard manufacturer[edit]

The article as it stands now contains very little information about the company's origins as a major motherboard manufacturer, and the fact that it has been, and continues to be the leading motherboard manufacturer in the world, having manufactured motherboard for numerous top OEMs for many years, with a reputation well ahead of any other company. The article seems to focus on end-user devices such as PCs, which are a relatively recent addition in a historical perspective, and various recent gadgets, many with negligable sales.

Outside of an old anecdote about the early relationship with Intel, from reading the article an uninformed reader would not come to the conclusion that Asus is a significant motherboard manufacturer or brand and has been the leading motherboard manufacturer and brand in the world for a very long time.

Other things that should be mentioned is Asus's history as a manufacturer video cards (since Asus has also been just about the leading video card manufacturer in the world for some time). The history of the budget brand Asrock could be also mentioned. Calamites (talk) 21:17, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Does this really belong in the lead section?[edit]

The company's slogan/tagline was "Rock Solid. Heart Touching", then "Inspiring Innovation. Persistent Perfection." and is currently "In Search of Incredible.

Seems like a minor detail which doesn't belong in the lead section. The rest of it could also be improved. NotYourFathersOldsmobile (talk) 01:52, 19 November 2015 (UTC)

Romanization[edit]

@2606:6000:ca80:1600:3c1d:a752:dc00:50ce: please read MOS:ROMANIZATION carefully before reverting again. You shouldn't use names that in your opinion better match the pronunciation (that is impossible to ensure; instead, it depends on the Romanization method), but the common English name, or if there is no common English name (but there definitely is for Taipei for instance), a standard Romanization.

You also broke the templates pretty badly and they weren't being fixed. Articles shouldn't be in a broken state. LjL (talk) 02:34, 20 November 2015 (UTC)

Company name[edit]

Some confusion here. Asus official website says ASUSTeK (ends in uppercase K) Computer Inc., as do some older product packages. The newer packages (eg Zenfone 5) reads ASUSTek Computer Inc. I presume the name on the website should be considered as authentic. -Polytope4d (talk) 16:33, 7 February 2016 (UTC)
