ASUS rolls out new and updated laptops, a monitor, and a projector at CES 2021


The latest from ASUS includes updates of the company’s ZenBook, as well as devices for gamers, business people, students, artists, and more.

Some exhibitors arrived at CES 2021 with a single product, with all attention focused on that one innovation. Others, like ASUS, came heavily armed with a cornucopia of new tech, something for just about everyone. Their standard ZenBook has been updated.There’s a new laptop designed for graphic-heavy work, a portable monitor, gamer-centric laptops, one designed for e-learners and one for artists.  There’s even something for the whole family: A projector for movies, TV, and sports. After all, when influencers are designing converted rooms into entertainment hubs centered around one of the new projectors, it’s bound to rise in popularity.
