They say that education is the most powerful weapon for changing the world, and ASUS wants each Filipino student properly-equipped both for class and for the future

ASUS has made its name in the industry for bringing us some of the most jaw-dropping and powerful hardware in the market. Today, the tech giant shifts its focus towards a sector with perhaps the greatest impact towards the world by fostering partnerships that provide access to much-needed tools to students and teachers, and offering a myriad of reliable and online class-ready hardware options that do not break the bank to parents and students. Here are the latest efforts of ASUS as they spearhead innovative education solutions in the midst of a global crisis.

Introducing ASUS 

For the not-so tech-savvy, ASUS is a global computer and electronics brand well-renowned for developing and manufacturing some of the most cutting-edge laptops, all-in-one PCs, and computer peripherals in the world. The Taiwan-based company’s Republic of Gamers (ROG) and TUF Gaming product lines are recognized by both competitive and amateur gamers for its sleek, futuristic designs and buttery-smooth, reliable performance for gaming, while its highly-acclaimed ZenBook and ExpertBook series have steadily become hardware mainstays for professionals ranging from various media producers to heavy-duty software developers.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the two primary elements that make up the educational system—our students and our educational institutions both public and private—are struggling to keep up with the necessary curricula to facilitate decent online learning throughout the school year while juggling dwindling resources. With such a clear-cut problem, ASUS took the initiative to give back and support a sector of society that almost all of the world’s industries depend on for innovation, human resources, and most importantly continuity.

ASUS believes that students and teachers don’t have to spend a fortune to get the best technology available

Enter the Education Partnership Program

ASUS wasted no time in helping alleviate the pressing dilemmas of our educational system by going directly towards the root. This ultimately meant the launch of the very first ASUS Education Partnership Program last July 8, 2021. The program’s goals are to partner with various schools, learning institutions, and other educational facilities to provide the proper tools and equipment for students and teachers so that they may not only survive, but ultimately thrive in the current distance learning environment implemented.

ASUS believes that no aid is too small to make a difference. That’s why we recognize the value even just one quality device has in shaping a child’s future.”

George Su, ASUS Philippines Country Manager on ASUS’s goals for this latest initiative

In the program, ASUS will not only be providing the necessary hardware needed for educators and learners, but they will also be assisting partner schools and institutions in modernizing their IT infrastructure and facilities to improve the critical tech support that these educational systems heavily rely upon today.

Back-to-school options

Apart from the promising campaign, ASUS has also raised the bar in developing three affordable laptop options for students of all ages specifically made for the remote learning environment that can easily be availed of online.

The ASUS BR1100 supports educators in providing a competent and wholesome learning experience online

Tagged as the K-12 education laptop, the ASUS BR1100 series is the optimum learning companion for many reasons. Easy on the wallet and also easy to manage, the series’ two variants are ideal laptops for schools requiring up-to-date hardware on a minimal budget. Despite its affordability, the ASUS BR1100 series comes packed with a multitude of special features that supports educators in setting up an excellent remote learning environment. The series comes with ASUS’s brand-new AI noise-cancelling technology, which employs machine learning to isolate unwanted noise from human speech. Such a complete arsenal of tools allows educators to focus on delivering personalized learning experiences that enable effective learning outcomes.

The ASUS BR1100 series offers two variants, both sized just right at 11.6 inches. The ASUS BR1100C comes as the traditional clamshell laptop, while the ASUS BR1100F offers a more premium experience being the flip version with a versatile touch screen display and stylus. Equipped with rubber bumpers, a spill-resistant keyboard, and an ultra-tough hinge, both variants feature a durable, military-standard design built not only for any rugged terrain, but also for the raunchy and rambunctious student who has the tendency of being clumsy.

Packing a pretty hefty punch, the ASUS ExpertBook B1400 comes with all the handy tools you need for the digital world

A more intermediate device, the ASUS ExpertBook B1400 presents a better fit for users with a wider range of academic or business activities. As it boasts its robust, 11th Gen Intel® Core™-powered overall performance, military-grade durability, and extensive customization, the ASUS ExpertBook B1400 is an ideal choice for both students and teachers requiring no-nonsense hardware that’s reliable, streamlined for the workflow of your choice, and allows for the use of the latest softwares and programs with its NVIDIA® GeForce® graphics processor unit.

Experience cutting edge and a stylish design all-in-one hardware with the ASUS Chromebook C425

Finally, for a laptop that’s as sophisticated as it is stylish, the ASUS Chromebook C425 is the perfect upgrade for the attentive and hardworking student who may have a birthday or a graduation fast approaching. With a whopping 85% screen-to-body ratio, this 14-inch, 16.9 millimeter-thin laptop is a stellar piece of computer engineering that truly exemplifies the best that ASUS has to offer. At only 1.3 kilograms, the ASUS Chromebook C425 is extremely light and yet packs a powerful punch with its beefy Intel® Core™ i5 processor, 8 gigabytes of RAM, and its Google-ready interface.
