When traveling, users prefer thin and light notebook designs and long battery life. At home, they prefer the video processing power a dedicated graphics card brings. With the XG station, users can enjoy the best of both worlds. The XG Station is the industry's first public demonstration of the world's first external graphics card station for notebook computers. Equipped with Express Card interface, USB 2.0 and Dolby headphones, the XG station seamlessly integrates notebook computing with PC graphics power.

Asus' goal is to be the electronics king of the world

Unfortunately Asus is hellbent on becoming the electronics king of the world regardless of the cost. The inferior design, engineering and construction quality and zero customer support of their products speaks volumes about Asus' attitude. To me this is very unfortunate because at one time Asus was actually a top line motherboard producer, but that was years ago. Now all they seem to care about is cranking out one POS after another in every electronics field they can find or try to invent. To me this is a clear case of a good company gone bad and their drop in mobo sales tends to confirm this.

It is in this example Casheti :) . Look, there is nothing wrong with Asustek extending themselves in new direction to better serve the greater market and make themselves money. As with all new ventures, somethings do need to be ironed out. I have to admit, not alot of their new stuff are POS'. Quite the contrary its pretty good. They make good mobos, so why not try laptops, Graphics cards and the like. Hell the prefab the pcbs so...I mean, it makes sense. :shadedshu

Bornfree's trolling is really starting to get annoying.

There aren't any motherboards available that are better than what ASUS produces. Show me a board better than the P5B-E in its price range, then do the same for the P5B-Deluxe.

Their customer support is very good, the one time I have had to call them for what I thought was a faulty motherboard the person was very helpful and willing to replace the motherboard, even though I told them I wasn't sure it was the motherboard at fualt.

I would like to see him produce some actual proof that their motherboard sales have dropped by any significant amount, I bet he can't.

Well this is just stupid. If Asus has no problems then why is it you find reports all over the Net about the defects in their products and why did Hexus rip them a new A-Hole over their defective products?

Denial doesn't change the facts. If you chose to be a brand fanboy that's up to you. What I stated is my take on Asus which is supported by the FACTS. Asus isn't alone in having QC, design and engineering problems. Sapphire, DFI, Gigabyte, Abit and other Asian mobo companies have all turned out quite a number of lemons in the past few years as documented by any number of review sites. Asus has just expanded their product line exponentially and the defective products are everywhere in the electronics landscape.

Advising me that I am receiving an "infraction" for stating the truth is just foolish. It won't change the facts and I am certainly not guilty of trolling because someone doesn't share the same perspective on defective products as I do. It would benefit those who dislike the truth that I posted, to do a little more reading instead of criticizing the messenger.

I would like to see these "facts" that support your statements. But since you just seem to like to talk and not provide any actual facts or proof to back your statements up, you are still trolling and still annoying.
