Checking out Express Gate

 

Express Gate is something that ASUS has been pushing for a while now between their motherboards and laptops. It's another operating system embedded that loads almost instantly and lets you do a few things.

 

With our network plugged in we fired up the Express Gate and checked out how the whole thing worked. While you can do little things like cruise the net and play some online games, it doesn't seem like it's all that helpful.

 

ASUS have been pushing it in Australia on their laptop range, saying that you could check in online for your flights without having to get into Windows. The thing is, though, Windows load time is pretty quick these days and the whole Express Gate feels a bit pointless.

 

The whole feature seems to be more of a marketing thing rather than anything else. Who knows though, while it may have no use to me, some people may have a use for it and if you do please comment in our forums as to how it is handy to you.
