All-in-one PCs are attractive to users short on space. The iMac may be the most recognizable all-in-one around, but Asus is getting in on the game with its Zen AIO Pro, an aluminum-and-glass system with Skylake processors and a goodly amount of graphics-processing power to boot.
The base Zen AIO Pro ships with a two-core, four-thread Core i3-6100T. Upgrade options range up to a quad-core Core i7-6700T. Eight or 16 GB of system memory should be enough of a playground for most users' applications.
Rather than rely on the CPU's integrated graphics, Asus includes a GeForce GTX 950 with 1GB of memory by default. Upgraded configs get a GeForce GTX 960 with 2GB of RAM. A 1TB mechanical hard drive is included in the base model, and a 128GB or 512GB PCIe SSD can also be specified.
The Zen AiO Pro has a 23" IPS display with 10-point multitouch. Asus says the panel can cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut. A 1080p screen is standard, but a 3840x2160 upgrade is available. That panel is encased in an anodized unibody aluminum chassis. Around the back, there are four USB 3.0 Type-A ports alongside a single USB 3.1 Type-C port and a pair of HDMI outputs.
The company bundles a matching wireless keyboard and mouse with the system. Pricing on the Zen AiO Pro will start at $999, and some configurations are expected to show up at retailers soon.
