Asus unveiled a number of computers and peripherals under their ROG line (Republic of Gamers) at Computex. Of the lot, the Asus Tytan CG8890 got most of the media attention. The new ultra premium gaming machine can physically transform itself upon hitting a one-click overclocking button dubbed Turbo Gear – without rebooting or having to do any of the messy processes to get the most out of the PC’s gear. ASUS claims the system has hundreds of vents and ten powerful crimson fans that augment its internal liquid cooling …
We’ve seen a flood of Windows 8 devices so far at Computex, and we think there’s no way they aren’t going to suck, especially the ASUS AiO — who wants to hold a 18-inch tablet on his hands? On the other side, the Android devices look cool on the Computex show floor, and we think the Chinese branded Android phones look not-so-bad. So, if you’re in the market for a cheap Android phone with satisfactory performance, start with this short list of Chinese-branded Android phones from Gigabyte, Acer, and Malata which have been showcased at Computex.
In the wake of many new and chunky Windows 8 hybrid devices, Android has been quiet at Computex this year. Acer actually had a few Android tablets displayed at their booth, and they are the Iconia Tab A110 and A210. The Acer Iconia A110 is remarkable. It is a 7-inch Android tablet and it is priced as cheap as Amazon’s Kindle Fire, but it offers better hardwares like having a Tegra 3 quad-core processor. We have some hands-on photos and videos embedded after the break.
Computex is wall-to-wall Windows 8. Many companies have brought ultrabooks, tablets and everything in between, but we don’t know what they are designed for. Now let’s take a look at some of the goofy and awesome gadgets at Computex. Each of them is actually more meaningful than any Windows 8 device we see on the show floor.
Hot chicks are one of the attractions in every big electronic show. And that is exactly what you will see in Computex as well. There are sexy local booth babes walking around and promoting products in the show, and we have gathered some pictures and videos of those hot chicks here. So, enjoy after the break!
Gymnasts usually stay in stadiums and practicing Still Rings, High Bar or some other gymnastics. However, some gymnasts were invited by Acer to perform pommel horse in front of lots of tech savvy at Computex. Seems a little ridiculous, huh? Video after the break.
“Paper PC Robot DIY kit”. Yup, that is what you could find inside the show. You can grab this pack at the booth of ASRock and fold it into a little robot while you are looking at all those news Windows 8 hybrid and motherboards. More pics after the break.
Taiwanese PC manufacturer ASUS has introduced a ridiculously brilliant product at Computex, a dual-screen laptop. Yup, it’s real, and it’s called the TAICHI. At first sight, you may think the TAICHI is just a laptop with ultra-thin design, but looking closer, you will see full-HD (1,920 x 1,080-pixel) screens on both sides of the lid. The screen on the outside is touch-capable and when the lid is closed, the TAICHI functions as a tablet, but with the lid opened both screens can be used independently, enabling same-time sharing with a friend face-to-face. Check out the video after the break to see it in action, and don’t miss out the wonderful moment of ASUS CEO Jonney Shih revealing the awesomeness of TAICHI.
Feeling boring of reading those Windows 8 tablets at Computex? If so, take a look at this. We spotted a cardboard-made Iron Man at the show! It looks very rough and terrible. ZTE should show them how to make a decent Iron Man suit…
After Acer introduced some very strange all-in-one desktop at Computex, the company still have a few more Windows 8 tablets being unveiled at the show. There are two models — Acer Iconia W700 and Iconia W510. The W700 is quite remarkable since it is an Ivy Bridge-loaded machine, combined with USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt. Check out how it performs after the break, with photos and videos.
