The suggestion that the numbers could be misleading

is an important one. That Asus and other netbook brands have been flooding the market and constitute a greater number of new machines....meaning they've had less time to break....is significant. I would put more stock in longer term histories of reliability, attrition rates, etc. I have been happy with the Asus motherboards I've put in my own machines over the years...nary a failure yet...and considered an Asus netbook for the one we bought but went with Lenovo for other reasons.

Asus has made a push in the US market.

Thier corporate goal is to improve it's brand recognition in the USA. They want to introduce more innovative product offerings. They want to take on Apple head to head.

Taking on Apple head to head with Windows?

Maybe Linux with it's apple "skin" but somehow they seem to be at a disadvantage here.
