“ASUS is one of the most innovative PC manufacturers in Taiwan,” said Dennis Crespo, DisplayLink executive vice president of marketing and business development. “As notebook manufacturers wish to shed the extra cost of a proprietary dock and as users seek methods to increase productivity, ASUS and other worldwide PC manufacturers are recognizing Universal Docking Stations to be an important growth category for their Notebook/Netbook businesses."
