Asus launches keyboard, mouse and headset to capitalize on strong Gaming Customer Base

Asus has come a long way since it was established in 1989. The company started out with just motherboards but have since expanded into various segments such as notebooks, tablets, smartphones and they will also soon enter the smartwatch market which we reported on.

The company has become the fifth largest PC vendor (Lenovo, HP, Dell and Acer are ahead of them) and in the most recent quarter they reported revenues of $3.33 billion.

While a majority of the revenue comes from their mobile division (Asus is the third largest notebook manufacturer), the motherboard / component business is still huge at 14% of the total business. Asus has a strong following amongst gamers as their graphics cards and other components are regarded as some of the best on the market.
