Asus VivoMini is a small desktop computer with a small starting price. Asus introduced the VivoMini last fall, promising it’d launch soon for $149 and up.
Now Asus tells me the little desktop PC should be hit stores in the next few weeks.
The cheapest models will feature Intel Celeron 2957U processors, but Asus also plans to offer models with Core i3 and Core i5 Haswell chips. It’d be nice if the company has some Broadwell options, but this computer’s been under development for a little while and it’s possible that the 5th-gen Intel Core chips weren’t available when work on the VivoMini began.
Asus says the computer supports up to 16GB of RAM, but will likely ship with 4GB and it will be available with 32GB to 256GB of mSATA solid state storage.
It features 3 USB 3.0 ports, an SDXC card reader, HDMI and DisplayPort (with support for 4K output and dual displays), and there will be models with 802.11ac or 802.11n WiFi.
The whole computer measures about 5.2″ x 5.2″ 1.7″ and weighs about 1.3 pounds.
