Fremont, CA: February 28, 2007 — Beginning in late February, ASUS notebooks will be available for purchase at more than 150 Best Buy retail stores nationwide.  The decision by the two companies marks the beginning of cooperation between one of the world’s largest notebook manufacturers and North America’s number one specialty retailer of consumer electronics, personal computers, entertainment software, and appliances.   

Best Buy will first introduce ASUS’ hot selling G1 series notebook to attract selective customers who seek innovative and stylish products that will enhance their lifestyles.   According to Raymond Chen, Vice President of Marketing for ASUS in North America, ASUS believes that ‘a customer’s enjoyment of a notebook depends on its moment to moment touch and feel.  The company therefore uses the finest quality materials and engineers them into notebooks with outstanding fit and finish — products that ‘feel like quality.  That’s why the G1 is made with a glossy finish, in-mold decorating, metal accents, high contrast color, and the alluring Republic of Gamers emblem.”
