Asus is riding the convertible craze
To say November was a good month for Asus is like saying the 1992 U.S. Men's Olympic Basketball Dream Team was decent. Both grossly undersell the accomplishment. The 1992 Dream Team is largely considered the greatest sports team ever assembled (regardless of sports), and for Asus, revenue hit a record high in November at NT$49,298 billion (around $1.67 billion in U.S. currency).
That's an 18.73 percent sequential jump and 2.46 rise compared to the same month a year ago, Digitimes reports . From January to November, Asus collected NT$423.40 billion (~US$14.33 billion), up nearly 3 percent year-over-year.
According to Digitimes , the spike in revenue is mostly due to increasing sales of Transformer Book T100 convertibles, as well as better-than-expected sales of notebooks in Latin America and China.
The Transformer Book T100 is a 10.1-inch detachable 2-in-1 touchscreen laptop with an Intel Atom (quad-core) foundation, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, 64GB SSD, and 11 hour battery life.
