PC Show 2014 Highlights

ASUS & Aztech


If performance is one of your priorities, you could do worse than ASUS' current flagship router, the RT-AC68U, which is one of the quickest Wireless-AC routers that we have tested. Or, if you don't need Wireless-AC, there is the RT-N66U, which happens to be one of the fastest Wireless-N routers we have tested.

ASUS' flagship RT-AC68U router is available at $329 and comes with a free 16GB thumbdrive, 2,600mAh battery bank and Trend Micro Security software.

If you don't need Wireless-AC, the RT-N66U supports Wireless-N, and is going for $209. It comes with a 2,600mAh mobile battery bank and free Trend Micro security software.

The Transformer Book Trio is two full devices in one form factor: the 11.6-inch display on its own is a full Android tablet. Attach it to the docking keyboard and you have a Windows 8.1 Ultrabook. If you buy it at the PC Show, you get a free 21.5-inch ASUS monitor, a 1TB external HDD, an external DVD drive, and other goodies! Prices start from $1,698.
