Asus launches Zen AiO ZN270 for 1500 Euros
Asus has expanded its Zen family of tablets, smartphones, and convertibles to include the All-in-One family designed for both office and home use. The new Zen AiO ZN270 carries the familiar Zen design philosophy with its smooth gray color scheme and high screen-to-body ratio of 74 percent. Core specifications include:
- 27-inch 1080p glass touchscreen
- Quad-core Core i5-7400T Kaby Lake CPU
- Nvidia GeForce 940MX w/ 2 GB VRAM
- 128 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
- HDMI-in, HDMI-out, 4x USB 3.1 Gen. 1, 2x USB 2.0
Configurations up to a Core i7 CPU and 512 GB SSD will also be made available. The IPS display, however, will be fixed at 1080p.
Of particular note is the HDMI-in port that allows the AiO to become a standard monitor for gaming, TV, or another computer. Its four USB Type-C ports should also prove useful, though it's unfortunate that none are compatible with Thunderbolt 3 for expanded versatility. Optimus is supported for switching to the integrated HD Graphics 630 GPU to reduce power consumption.
The ZN270 will be shipping before the end of this month for a starting price of just under 1500 Euros.
