Windows 8-ready mini PC supports up to 16GB of RAM
The Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) is currently underway in Los Angeles and we are in the thick of the action, bringing you frequent updates straight from the show floor. But don't forget that we are just a few days removed from the end of Computex 2013, an event where PC vendors from around the globe were out in full force to showcase their latest PC designs. Among the myriad products announced at that event was a diminutive HTPC named VivoPC from Asus, which apparently felt that the world wasn’t quite ready to learn about the machine’s specs at that time.
The Taiwanese company has finally shed some light on the Windows 8-ready VivoPC’s innards. Measuring all of 190(l) X 190(w) X 56.2(h) mm and possessing a sliding top for easy access to the hard drive bay and memory slots, the VivoPC will be configurable with an Intel processor, up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM, and either a 3.5/2.5 inch SATA 6.0Gb/s HDD or a solid state drive. Other specs include, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, SonicMaster speakers, two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, three audio jacks, SPDIF out and RJ45.
With no word on pricing or availability yet, all we can do is wait and hope that it will be available soon at a reasonable price point.
