Should I buy Asus’ laptop? Is Asus Laptop worth buying?
The most straight forward answer to this question is Yes.
Yes, you should buy an Asus laptop. And yes Asus laptops are worth buying.
The only caution I would state is that, like any other brand, you need to know why you’re buying the laptop, your usage, and how much you’re willing to spend.
But first, let me explain why Asus laptops are worth buying.
Brief History of Asus
Asus has had a great deal of fortune in the brand ranking for the past few years.
Last year, the company clinched second place in the best laptop brand rating. But that was not all because of favor and fortune. While others might attribute Asus’ success to luck, I say they managed through sheer work, toil, and impressive innovation. Simply put, when it comes to innovation, Asus has got some serious back burners on.
Some of the reputable work brought to the table in 2019 include the ScreenPad and Ergolift hinge.
Fortunately, it doesn’t all end there. We’ve listed just a few of Asus’ Key Strengths so you see the bigger picture.
Asus’ Key Strengths
• Innovative Features: Asus have made a name for themselves in this arena. Last year the company shattered headlines with an innovative ScreenPad(a touchpad that doubles up as a secondary display) and ErgoLyft hinge. Both were risks that later paid off and now they’re reaping the rewards.
• Gorgeous designs: Asus puts some serious time and money in designing each of its laptops.
• Affordable price point: Design aside, Asus has always managed to be slightly more affordable in every category they venture into. They have a list of some of the most affordable laptops and in every price range. We’ve often featured some of Asus’ laptops in our content, such as in the best laptops for college students article published recently.
Asus’ Key Weakness
• Support and warranty: Asus’ support team failed to rise to the occasion on this front. Support failed to answer some of the questions raised and Asus has yet to offer an extended warranty. That in itself sets Asus back and support is key gaining brand respect.

What other people say
In our own opinion, Asus is a trustable brand and well-known for some of its best products. But what do other people think of it?
Well, during Computex Awards in 2018, Asus received some of its finest accolades of the year. It received six awards for best Choice and 11 for Design and Innovation. The awards were awarded for:
