Imagine that you’ve suddenly been awarded the job of heading up the R&D team at Asus. You’ve got a crack team of engineers, a limitless budget and a production line at the ready. You now have your chance to rid the world of those little niggles that have repeatedly forced you to yell obscenities at your computer, and the motherboard and graphics card world is your silicon oyster. What would you change? That’s what we asked the bit-tech readers on the AX:GS blogging team to consider for the third week of blogging, and it’s a question that’s inspired a veritable invention book, packed with innovative ideas.

If you’re a tech-head who’s bursting with ideas that you can’t wait to share with the rest of the geek world, then here’s your opportunity to air your views and even get them exposed in the limelight.

If you were one of the attendees at the Asus Xtreme General Summit earlier this year, then you’ll currently be penning your thoughts about the event and your hardware prizes over two blogs every week. We’re currently reading through the third week’s blog entries, and we’ll be posting the highlights soon, and we’ve also put the posting guidelines for the final week’s blogs up on the forums.

In the meantime, each week we’re posting our favourite blog from the previous round in the bit-tech Blogs section, so here’s Skiddywinks’ winning blog from the second week:

Following several weeks of prodding, tweaking and possibly lovingly caressing your fancy new Asus kit from the AX:GS event, it’s now time to reveal your first impressions of the hardware you were awarded.

Yes, the first round of AX:GS blogs is now up in lights, and last week’s posts have been successfully digested by the bit-tech judges. Before we share the highlights with you, though, we would like to thank you for your patience while we’ve been ironing out the gremlins with our, ahem, gremlin iron. Thankfully, most of the problems have now been sorted out, and most of you have access to the blogging area on the Asus Republic of Gamers website, but please drop us a line if you encounter any other issues so that we can get them sorted out.
