As usual ASUS is showing off a whole wealth of tech on its booth at Computex 2011.

Firstly we met the Proart PA2546Q on display. The 1920 by 1200 pixel P-IPS monitor provides 98% Adobe RBG colour gamut, it’s designed clearly with professionals in mind. The new QuicKFit function can virtually overlay real document sizes with creative content on screen. This means a layout can be judged without needing expensive test print-outs.

ASUS’s upcoming Eee PC 1025 series netbooks are also on show in a range of colours. Dubbed Flare, they have a new design that includes a wrap-around single colour scheme with a white streak down each side.

With Intel’s next generation ‘Cedar Trail’ Atom CPU inside, they should also run cooler and longer than ever.

ASUS’s new Instant On feature allows the Flare series to sleep for up to 21 days, yet resume at any time in just 2-4 seconds. The data is also stored securely should the battery unfortunately be removed or fully drained.

Taking a leaf out of the chic design book, the latest ET2700VXT all in one PC is designed to be sharp but beautiful, with its aluminium stand and grill.

Behind the grill are larger SonicMaster speakers, and it comes with a separate subwoofer module that takes on bass duty.

With a 10-point multitouch screen the large 27 inch full HD display can be shared among the family, while a second generation Core-i5 CPU and Nvidia 500-series graphics can keep up with any number of games and apps.

Further into the ASUS booth there’s an oversized display about the Super Alloy Power technology used on ASUS graphics cards. Super Alloy Tech uses a special high-temperature and pressure alloy in the MOS FETs, CHOKES and capacitors to generate 35C lower temperatures and a 2.5 times longer lifespan.

Finally over to the large Eee Pad display, where ASUS was showing off its newest Transformer tablets featuring the latest Android 3.1 software. The Eee Pad Transformer was also awarded the Best Choice and Best Design awards by Taitra for Computex 2011.
