Twenty-five years of innovation
ASUS was founded in 1989 as a motherboard manufacturer in the early days of Taiwan’s computer industry. From our beginnings, we have had a deep passion for technology that drives everything we set out to achieve. Today, ASUS is a global technology leader with a workforce of over 13,600 employees, including an R&D team of 4,500 engineers.
Over the last 25 years, we at ASUS have achieved multiple milestones that show our passion for technology and commitment to empower people with an effortless and joyful digital life. In 2007, we launched our first Eee PC, which was an immediate hit and went on to revolutionize the PC industry by putting well-designed, portable and affordable notebooks into the hands of consumers for the first time. Following the success of the Eee PC, in 2010 we released ASUS Transformer Pad, which leads the trend for detachables.
In 2011, we released Padfone, the world's first 2-in-1 smartphone and tablet that allowed seamless transition between devices. We continued our innovative tradition with the 2012 launch of ASUS TAICHI, the world’s first dual-screen notebook, and ASUS Transformer Book, the world’s first notebook with a detachable tablet. In 2013, we reimagined home computing with the release of Transformer AiO, an all-in-on PC with a detachable 18.4" tablet. This year, we released ZenFone, a range of extraordinary smartphones designed to empower consumers with a set of powerful features and available in a variety of sizes and colors.
