Asus appears to be determined to be a leader in providing machines equipped with USB 3.0 support, with the announcement that they are installing the speedier USB technology into a slew of their machines and motherboards.

The Taipei-based computer manufacturer argues that this move is "not a gimmick," but rather just pushing technology to the next level. Whether it is a gimmick or not, more USB 3.0 availability out there is a good thing.

Asus is starting their USB 3.0 campaign on the N Series notebook line, plus on the Eee PC 1018/1015/1016 netbooks announced at CeBIT and the Eee Box 1510U/1210U PCs.
