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)

Relationship with Intel[edit]

I can not find anything that corroborates the story about the ASUS engineers fixing the Intel boards. It makes for a good story, but does anyone have any proof that it actually happened? Greg Birdsall 19:03, 25 October 2006 (UTC)

I looked through the logs and found guy who added it - -- 10:40, 13 March 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for putting the notice on his user page - I can not find anything else that references that story on the web, or on Asus' site. Greg Birdsall 13:16, 13 March 2007 (UTC)
Thanks for reminding me. It was from a Chinese book about Asus (I have failed to find its English equivalent though). A link to the extract has been added (Chinese website!). Richardlai 22:11, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Great, thanks! Now I just have to find someone to read it for me... Greg Birdsall 20:17, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
If Chinese isn't your language, you can just about get the idea from Google Translate: [1] Richardlai 01:91, 16 March 2007 (UTC)

I've found another source and expanded the story a bit. I had to struggle with the reference, but I think it's correct now. MadIce (talk) 14:48, 22 December 2013 (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 (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. (talk) 19:27, 9 March 2008 (UTC)

Asus Transformer Pad Infinity[edit]

I stubbed this device, somebody can probably expand it better. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 02:03, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

MeMo Pad[edit]

I see an external link referencing the Asus MeMo Pad, but there is no mention of it in the article. Perhaps this should be added in the tablets section? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:08, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

Companies spawned by Asus[edit]

I think there should be a section reflecting the companies that have been spawned by Asus. One section talks about Pegatron and Unihan, but Asus should be given credit for other companies that they created such as Asrock and Askey, and i'm sure there are others too.

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)
