ASUS Zen AiO 24 A5401 launched with an AMD Ryzen 7 5700U APU and a stylish design
In January, ASUS revealed a revised Zen AiO 24, its 23.8-inch all-one-one (AIO) computer that it equips with a 1080p display. At the time, the company did not reveal many details about it, besides that it would be available with AMD Ryzen 5000 APUs. Now, the Ryzen 7 5700U model (A5401W-R75700LU) has appeared on its Japanese store, along tih the Core i3-10300T and Core i7-10700T models that the company already sells.
Presumably, ASUS plans to sell at least this Ryzen 7 5700U model outside of Japan. Initially, the company claimed that it would sell the A5401 with Ryzen 5 APUs, but these are currently nowhere to be seen. For reference, ASUS charges JPY 149,800 (~US$1,380) for the Ryzen 7 5700U edition, which is roughly US$46 cheaper than the equivalent Core i7-10700T model.
To recap, ASUS sells the A5401W in black and white. Both colours are available with up to 16 GB of dual-channel SO-DIMM RAM, a 1 TB SATA SSD and a 512 GB M.2 NVMe drive. All models have plenty of ports too, including an RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet, five USB ports and HDMI 1.4 in/out connections. ASUS has also equipped the device with a 720p webcam and an IR camera that supports Windows Hello.
Unfortunately for ASUS, Apple's latest iMac is likely to have the edge over the A5401W in CPU and GPU performance. According to our database, the Apple M1 enjoys a slight lead over the Ryzen 7 5700U in CPU workloads and even greater one in GPU-heavy tasks. Nonetheless, the A5401W with a Ryzen 7 5700U is a powerful AIO computer that has plenty to offer, in our opinion.
