ASUS announces the 23.8-inch Zen AiO Pro Z240IC, the first model in the new Zen AiO Pro series, a premium range of all-in-one PCs.
Featuring an all-aluminium design, Zen AiO Pro looks amazing. But the beauty is not just skin-deep, with performance delivered by sixth-generation Intel Core up to i7 processors and gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M graphics with 2GB of video memory. Other leading-edge technology showcased in the Zen AiO Pro series includes the latest 10Gbit/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C port, up to PCIe 3.0 x4 M.2 SSD storage, and an Intel RealSense camera.
For immersive family entertainment, the new Zen AiO Pro is equipped with a powerful six-speaker ASUS SonicMaster Premium sound system that delivers 16W of rich and clear stereo sound.
Full connectivity across all devices allows Zen AiO Pro to become the ultimate digital hub for work or play.
The Zen AiO Pro is built to provide out-of-the-ordinary performance for discerning home users. Using the latest generation of quad-core Intel Core up to i7 processors, with 16GB of the very latest DDR4 memory and lightning-fast M.2 SSD storage, Zen AiO Pro has power to spare for instant responsiveness and ultra-smooth and immersive entertainment.
Dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 gaming-grade graphics with 2GB of video memory ensure users can enjoy stutter-free high-resolution movies and videos in vivid, lifelike colours, or play the latest games at full resolution with high-quality settings.
Zen AiO Pro is the world’s first all-in-one PC to use the next-generation USB 3.1 Gen 2, which delivers blindingly-fast data transfers of up to 10Gbit/s — twice as fast as USB 3.0, and over 20 times faster than USB 2.0. With these speeds, even the biggest data transfers take no time at all. Zen AiO Pro uses the latest USB 3.1 Type-C connector for improved ease of use — the connector is reversible, so it can’t be inserted the wrong way round. And for all-device connectivity, Zen AiO Pro also has a full complement of four USB 3.0 ports plus a USB 2.0 port, along with the latest ultra-fast 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
Incredible sound, awesome entertainment
Zen AiO Pro is designed for the ultimate multimedia entertainment, with up to a stunning FHD 10-point multi-touch IPS display for vibrant, pin-sharp visuals, along with wide viewing angles and ultra-responsive touch interactivity. It also has a colour gamut of up to 100 per cent sRGB, which ensures accurate, rich and vivid colour reproduction.
The audio system has a total of six speakers that deliver rich and clear full-range sound. Each 8-watt stereo channel uses three powerful speakers located at either side of Zen AiO Pro, giving fully realistic stereo separation and a total of 16 watts of pure, undistorted sound for an amazingly-lifelike experience.
New modes of PC interaction
Zen AiO Pro Z240IC features an amazingly-accurate Intel RealSense camera to add futuristic interactive capabilities. Accurate motion-sensing of people or objects in front of the camera is now possible, enabling previously unimagined ways of interacting with a PC. For example, with precise 3D facial recognition, a user’s face can become their login password, or families can just have fun interacting with the latest motion-controlled games.
Create your own personal cloud
With its large display and full high-speed connectivity, Zen AiO Pro is perfect for streaming content from other devices. And with the exclusive ASUS HomeCloud, PC Link, Share Link and SyncUp apps, it can also act as a household cloud storage hub, allowing family members to organise their files and data on multiple mobile devices and access them instantly from anywhere, on any device.
ASUS HomeCloud allows users to create their own personal cloud storage, with wireless file access from any mobile device. Users get a 100GB ASUS WebStorage account free for one year, and HomeCloud can sync with this to create automatic off-site backups, or mirror user-selected files online.
PC Link allows users to link and project a mobile device’s screen to Zen AiO Pro, allowing incoming call and app notifications to be monitored on the PC. This frees users from the hassle of checking their mobile device while using Zen AiO Pro.
Share Link enables the wireless transfer of any size or format of file between Zen AiO Pro and mobile devices, and SyncUp automatically syncs files between Zen AiO Pro and mobile devices, with customisable settings to allow seamless editing from any device.
The ASUS Zen AiO Pro Z240IC is available at Emax & Virgin and is priced at Dh6,499.
