I have to admit that it has been very difficult for me to write about Computex 2012 this year. Not because there is nothing nice to say, but rather because there is just so much going on and so many devices and components to look forward to – I feel like a kid in a candy store.

In my last piece I looked at how Windows 8 and hybrid designs dominated the trend focus for Computex 2012. Certainly products such as the ASUS TAICHI and the ASUS Transformer AiO offered up incredibly unique takes on the two-in-one trend.

However, the hybrid was not the only thing to come out of the event. Displays were also high on the list of design and functionality priorities. The ASUS Designo monitors – MX279H and MX239H – both offered ultra-wide viewing angles, slim design and superb colour reproduction. And, obviously, this ethos of high quality display alongside connectivity and design was carried through to the TAICHI, Transformer Book, Transformer AiO and the new Windows 8 tablets – Tablet 800 and Tablet 600 – from ASUS.

As always, the Cloud made an appearance. This ubiquitous technology has continued to gather mainstream adoption as more people become au fait with its workings and its uses become more apparent, and ASUS have ensured that they offer solutions that tap into this growing trend.

ASUS Cloud Appliance was announced for the enterprise market and ASUS announced a laptop that will support the 802.11ac standard – another first in the 5G Wi-Fi ROG G75VW gaming notebook that oozes power and has plenty of features and specs. It’s certainly enough to have me scraping at the screen, hoping for one to fall out into my hands. The RT-AC66U dual-band wireless router revealed at Computex 2012 by ASUS is also based on the 802.11ac standard, offering speeds up to three times faster than 802.11n.

It is one of the first routers to achieve this and comes with ASUS AiRadar signal amplification and ASUSWRT set-up for ease of use and superior performance.

Computex 2012 has clearly outlined three primary trends to look out for over the next year – Touch and Display, Cloud and Connectivity and Hybrid Features. It’s definitely going to be an exciting year for the technology fan.
