After that the ASUS Malaysia team, formed of their marketing and technical division have a talk with the participant getting their feedback of the ASUS product and opinion in regards as of how they can improve the product and services.

After all is done the event finished at around 3PM with these picture

Personally i think ASUS Malaysia did a great job, pooling up all those existing user and their potential customer at one place and explain their vision and objective of the PC hardware market and at the same time get a 1st hand feedback from actual user.

I hope this isn’t the last of such event and there will be more to be held. That’s all from me, hilmiangah and for more pictures from the event please drop by my flickr page.
