The only big question I have for them is if ITX/DTX FF will start getting love in their road maps.

Man, an Asus case, ITX/DTX, pico PSUs and small boards for the enthusiast crowd... Nerdgasm right there.

Cheers!

My only question would be why there is no warranty for Asus laptops in South and Latin America. So much for an "international warranty".

Ooooh,
Can I ask why the last 6 Asus motherboards I've bought were crap?
m2nE failed on board ethernet, audio drivers were in beta for a year, never worked right

3 m4a785m for friends and family, one channel audio failed on two, ethernet on 3, southbridge died on one, replaced with new DOA

Now this, m5a97, only sees two memory sockets

Should have listened to the forums. I've been buying Asus since socket 7 and pentium 2 days, but I've learned my lesson. Your quality control ain't what it used to be.

Why does the Asus G750 laptop have a soldered CPU when your competitors do not? Don't tell me it's to save weight or space, your laptop is heavier than the MSI.
 
I wonder why all the comments seem to be asking the questions they're supposed to be asking in the new feature AMA????

@Yuka: Asus already has a number of wonderful MiniITX boards whose only disadvantage is their somewhat high price and low availability. As for picoPSUs, there're currently none manufactured by reputable brands (Corsair, Antec, NZXT, Seasonic, etc.) and I know I'd never trust my precious Asus hardware to any mediocre PSU..

I'd LOVE to ask why they made a laptop (UL80JT) that used a wifi card where its driver conflicted with the Nvidia Optimus driver causing wifi to shut off, then tell all their customers that it was not ASUS' fault, not issue updates to fix it, and THEN just forget about the computer all together.

I'd love to ask that, but given that Tom's forums have been performing like crap, I'm skeptical about this AMA idea.

Why are they still charging £90 for a sound card that they haven't updated the drivers for n 4 years? (Asus Xonar D2X)

From the announcement: ...you can ask any question provided it isn't a tech support request (as these require in-depth personal follow-up and diagnostics). If you have a specific question, absolutely. But asking about why you felt the last X motherboards you bought were crap doesn't count, and the reps cannot speak to your opinion and the question may be moderated.

ASUS isn't a vendor and doesn't directly sell products like a storefront. The reps might be able to answer this one, but it might be more of a question for Newegg or BestBuy.

jpishgar, asking why his last 6 MB's were crap is not a technical support question. He lists the reasons why they were, demonstrating he does not need technical support. What he would like to know is what changed in the manufacturing process that Asus would allow crap to make it to retail. That is not a technical support question.

"Why is your stuff crap?" is not a valid question, and will be moderated with extreme prejudice. Be be sure to read the AMA Rules in the AMA thread itself if you have any questions about what constitutes an appropriate question. http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-1713811/official-asus-representative.html

These reps are our guests, and we will be treating them with hospitality. Already a handful of great questions in this thread. :)

Are you ever going to make a laptop with a 4:3 screen? I'm never going to by a wide screen for doing work. 2560 x 1700 is the size I want. I'd buy the google pixel at that high price if it was a "proper" laptop.
 
can i ask about asus' multicore enhancement on their new z87, b85 motherboards? i read that intel removed turbo o.c., so i was wondering how it'd affect non-k core i5 users. also about the stability and safety of the auto-oc'ed cpus.

Dear ASUS, how do you pronounce ASUS? I know the name came from Pegasus - peg, so it should be pronounced like that? Or is it "azzuus" like some guy on youtube keeps on saying. or "ay-sus" (ok how do I type sounds...)
