Updated November 7, 2014 7:32 pm - ASUS has several new PCs they announced yesterday at Computex, including several new All-in-One PCs and a new mouse!
ET2702 All-in-One PC:
The ET2702 27-inch All-in-One PC comes with a display featuring IPS technology and an ultra-high 2560 x 1440 resolution (almost twice the pixel density of a same-size full HD display) and optional 10-point multi-touch. In short – this All-in-One has a stunning screen. It is powered by the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors and AMD Radeon HD8890A discrete graphics. The ET2702 also comes with an option Intel Thunderbolt port and a special “Device Share” mode that lets you connect other Windows PCs to it. You can also utilize its HDMI-in/out ports and USB ports and turn the ET2702 into a sort of “dock” for a laptop.
ET2301 All-in-One PC:
The new ET2301 23-inch All-in-One PC is the little brother to the ET2300 but still comes packing quite a punch with the latest 4th generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740m discrete graphics. It has a full HD display with IPS technology (1920 x 1080 resolution) 10-point touch capabilities. It has HDMI-in/out ports allowing it to be used as a display for devices such as Blu-ray players or an Xbox 360. You can get a 3TB hard drive, or a 128GB solid-state drive with 1TB hard drive option in select markets. And the ET2301 also has an optional 802.11ac wireless capabilities which, with routers that also support 802.11ac, gives you wireless access that is 3 times faster than 802.11n.
The VivoPC is a small little PC that is only 56mm tall and with a footprint smaller than a sheet of A4 paper. Its compact design has a spun-metal finish looking quite nice in living rooms and home offices and can fit into the smallest spaces. It has two USB 3.0 ports and high-speed 802.11ac wireless capabilities. You can also lift off the top cover for quick access to the two internal memory slots and the drive bay can accommodate either a 3.5-inch or 2.5-inch SATA 6Gbit/s hard drive – so it is also easily upgradeable.
The VivoMouse is a new kind of mouse from ASUS. It can be a mouse, a touchpad or a PC remote. This mouse can bring a touch experience to Windows 8 PCs that don’t have touch displays with its touchpad that recognizes the Windows 8 touch gestures. It’s a perfect companion for the above-mentioned VivoPC.
ASUS had a shiny new Zenbook on display at Computex – the Zenbook Infinity. The new Zenbook Infinity Ultrabook features a new design that “fuses” glass and aluminum and looks beautiful. It uses new Corning® Gorilla® Glass 3 with “Native Damage Resistance™” on the lid and around the keyboard that makes the PC look sleek but is also durable and it’s thinner than the previous model. Pricing and specs to be announced later this year.
This 15.6-inch N Series laptop from ASUS is an entertainment powerhouse built for someone might like carrying around a mobile production studio (or movie theater for watching movies). It comes with an anti-reflective touchscreen display with a resolution of up to 2880 x 1620 featuring IPS technology and discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M graphics. It is designed with multi-layer aluminum etching technology and has an integrated speaker hole that gives audio a “ripple pattern” along with an external subwoofer that delivers heart-pounding beats. It has a backlit chick-lit keyboard and an ultra-wide multi-gesture clickpad.
The new VivoBook Series Ultrabooks from ASUS comes powered by 4th generation Intel Core processors and discrete NVIDIA GT 740 graphics. It has good looks too with a design that features premium aluminum textures. Even after prolonged use, it continues to look slick. Whether you’re a student or gamer – this laptop is a great option with awesome performance.
This new 14-inch Ultrabook from ASUS is designed specifically for the enterprise and small business customers. It has an aluminum and carbon construction for durability but is also thin and light. It has a “vPro” option allowing for replaceable memory and batteries. The B400 also has security features such as TPM and a biometric sensor for keeping business-critical data on the PC safe and secure. You get the B400 in several storage configurations such as a hybrid hard drive or a Solid State Drive (SSD).
