While curved screens and monitors aren’t new to the market, Asus shook up the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show with a switched-up version of their classic Zenbook.

One of the great things about CES is that it offers something for just about everyone whose interests include electronics, from casual console gamers to seasoned industry engineers.
