"The arrival of Windows 8 with touch, Asus' push towards cloud computing and our use of innovative product design, all combine in our new line up to bring technology to users that is exciting and intuitive. Users can now access their content anywhere, in a much more personalized way. These products are the result of our endless search for the incredible and persistence at bringing the richest digital experience to users", added Yu.
