Asus reveals stylish and compact VivoPC running Windows 8
During Computex today, Asus has unveiled two new devices, the VivoPC running Windows 8 and a VivoMouse. These two devices are not only stylish but also compact and elegantly designed.
“ASUS today announced two new devices that bring innovative design to home entertainment – the VivoMouse wireless touchpad mouse and the ultra-compact VivoPC. VivoMouse is the world’s first wireless mouse with an integrated multi-touch touchpad for full desktop and handheld control. VivoPC is a stylish and compact desktop PC that delivers high quality sound with exclusive SonicMaster audio and high-performance wireless networking thanks to 802.11ac Wi-Fi,” Asus revealed in an official press release.
The VivoPC not only runs Windows 8, but is 56mm in height and features a stylish spun metal finish design to complement home offices and living rooms. The VivoPC also features Asus SonicMaster audio technology and high-performance 802.11ac WiFi. Owners of the VivoPC can also slide the case back to have quick access to the two internal memory slots and the drive bay. The VivoPC also features an Intel cpu with Intel HD integrated graphics. 3.5/2.5 inch SATA6Gb/s HHD/SSD support and 2x USB 3.0 and 4x USB 2.0 ports are also on the device.
The VivoMouse, on the other hand, features a standard optical mouse that fits comfortably in the hand and features a large circular touchpad with full support for Windows 8’s multi-touch gestures. The VivoMouse features a 1200 DPI optical sensor, 2.4GHz RF wireless connection, and a three point multi-touch touchpad.
No word on when these two devices will go on sale but perhaps they will be available later this year. Asus had not revealed pricing just yet.Further reading: Asus, Windows 8
