    Re: asus machines

    I've have a few desktops with Asus motherboards and the older Asus motherboards seem to like Linux better than the newer Asus motherboards.

    I've had to buy sound cards in the newer ones (Z87 Pro motherboards) as Ubuntu just didn't like the sound cards although can't complain as the desktops were free.

    All of them work great with Windows / Windows 10 hmm imagine that like I said they were free so can't complain as sound cards are cheap from ebay.

    I used an Asus M4N78 Pro in my home built desktop for 8 years of dual booting with Win 7. It still works if I want to build another desktop computer, but I'm short a power supply case and cpu.

    Re: asus machines

    My laptop is a Asus A54C-NB91, it is a bit dated and i can fell it in basic task, but when you get used to higher end desktop hardware (like double the core count and clock speed) you just expert stuff to be near instant, also 1366x768 feels a bit small, it really needs more height now days...
    my current desktop is a Ryzen 5 3600 16GB DDR4 3800Mhz Cl 16 (ram is OCed, but is not optimized at all) with a OCed 3gb 1060
    for my next laptop id like to have a 4core 8 thread ryzen apu, of couse if i can get a similar Intel based system for the same or better price i'll gladly go with that also, should be some really good options in the next 2 years, tough if it is ryzen based if the bios does not either allow me to oc the ram or apply xmp i'd probably skip it, OEMs like to shove a single slow stick of ram in system and lock down the bios to have no features as a typical consumer does not know what dual channel is or ram clock speed does, this is cripples a system with integrated graphics

    I've got an old Asus EeePC 900 which is about 10 years old and runs Debian Buster at present.

    Also, it looks like my desktop has a Asus motherboard. Nothing fancy, but it does what I want, and reliably.

    Re: asus machines

    M31AD desktop with an i5 connected to my TV. Once had a RAID1 array, but I have since moved that to the Dell T30 server I own. Added a fanless NVIDIA GT1030, after the prior GT750 was removed because it had a noisy fan.

    Two complaints: One is that opening the case voids the warranty. The other is that it doesn't have enough USB ports. Otherwise a perfectly fine desktop tower.

    The only machine in my house with an intact copy of Windows that I use for occasional gaming.
