if traffic is the only thing stopping you guys from making a seperate forum for asus, i think it should be a definite yes then...look at the apple forum here and the apple forum on notebookreview.com and look at the asus forum there. Almost 8 times more posts and not to mention how many times more views. From a beginner's point of view they'll think that since acer, dell, compaq, sager, etc all have their own forums then they must be in the 'elite' league of namebrands with ibm, sony, toshiba and apple. And asus, is just a cheap, crappy, noname brand that can't compare. I know that is not the intention, but it does and will come across like that everytime someone new visits this site.
