ASUS Zen AiO Pro – new products that will expand the capabilities of users of all-in-one computers
Of course, stationary computers can be upgraded indefinitely, and they "live" longer than laptops, tablets. A lot of wires between the monitor and the unit, here is their weak point, which sometimes has to be untangled under the table. Fortunately, in many modern offices and homes monochrome devices with a two-in-one function have already appeared. They monitor and hardware stuffing are inseparable, and structurally they look like small flat TVs. Many companies are already producing such computers and Asus was no exception. His latest innovations of this kind are very serious equipment, on which not only complex applications can be operated for a long time without hangs and delays, but also play the most "heavy" toys.

You can start the description of Zen AiO Pro Z240IC and Zen AiO Pro Z220IC from the outside. They, as expected, correspond to the latest fashion trends. And this was to be expected from models ranked as premium. The material of which the thin, one-piece housing is made is anodized aluminum. The support is also made of it and brought back. The back is polished, and the screen is frameless, completely glass. The maximum equipment is equipped with a Zen AiO Pro touch screen, which is capable of recognizing up to ten touches at the same time and reproducing 100% of the sRGB color space, which, in turn, ensures high color accuracy.
Processors, as expected, from the latest developments – the sixth generation Intel Core, and all models are equipped with them. RAM DDR4 standard 32 GB. An impressive indicator thanks to which toys even with the most complex graphics will "fly" without braking. To all this, it is worth adding the presence of a solid-state, ultra-fast drive with a PCLe3.0 × 4 interface. Also, smooth operation and quick response is provided by the NVIDIA Geforse GTX 960 gaming-grade discrete graphics accelerator with its own video memory up to 4 GB.
The fact that these models really differ from other new products is the new generation USB 3.1 Gen 2 interfaces available in them, the transmission speed through which reaches 10 Gbps. Just a salvation for cases when you need to transfer a lot of information, but there is no time to wait. To connect any additional external devices there are four USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0. And, of course, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, without which more than one PC is now complete.
But, not only the hardware emphasizes belonging to the premium class. The sound of the Zen AiO Pro Z240IC and Zen AiO Pro Z220IC is of such quality that an ordinary user of a standard modern computer can only dream of. A pure, stereo-dynamic effect is created by six speakers, into which 16 watts of total power are distributed.
It would be an omission not to mention another element of one of the computer monitors. Zen AiO Pro Z240IC will run an innovative 3D Intel RealSense camera. Now you can control the PC with its help, though not yet completely, but most likely it will be fixed in the following models over time.
