Yea, I also go with "AY-sis" as my default but when I'm at their head office with something that I need changed, I change to "ah-SOOS" so as to not ruffle their feathers ..it just makes life easier! :D

"ih-SOOSE" (rhymes with 'goose').

Now if we could just get "Linux" right: "LINN-ucks" (rhymes with 'ducks'). I squirm every time someone says "Lie-necks".

ey-sis :p

Edit: Also, ey-suss but never ey-soos. That just makes no phonetic sense :p

I also say a-sis, never said a-soos. Just sounds wrong.

But ASUS is da bomb diggity, I've got an Asus notebook that has been punished beyond reasonable means - and it still runs like a champ.

Hee-hah!

Pronounce it like Jesus, but instead of the "gee" sound use "ay" like in the sound when you say "gay".

Asus is derived from Pegasus right? So do the yanks say Peg-a-soos? I for 1 pronounce it Peg-a-sis
