The Asus VivoPC X is a VR-ready desktop PC that’s about the size of a game console. It measures 11″ x 10.2″ x 3″ and weighs about 4.4 pounds. And under the hood, the system features a quad-core Intel Kaby Lake processor, NVIDIA graphics, and support for up to 16GB of RAM and dual storage.

First unveiled at CES in January, the VivoPC X is now available for purchase.

You can pick one up from Newegg or Amazon for $799.

Amazon is also offering a VR bundle with an Oculus Rift headset and Oculus Touch controllers for $1398, but it’s actually cheaper right now to just buy the headset + controllers separately.

The VivoPC X comes with a Core i5-7300HQ processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX1060 graphics, 8GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive.

The system features two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, four USB 3.1 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and has an M.2 slot for an optional solid state drive in addition to the included hard drive.

It also features Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1, and a headset jack.

Asus says the system can support display resolutions up to 3,840 x 2160 pixels, or up to three full HD displays at once.

  1. Not bad… but you’re stuck with what you get on this.

    I’d prefer a Console/Compact PC that is serviceable.
    You know replaceable SSD, RAM, CPU, and (small) GPU.
    Because RyZen and Vega will make these systems cheap or redundant in the near future, so having it user serviceable is a much better option even if it means the total package is slightly larger.

  2. the real question is, should I get this and try to make a hackintosh out of it? It would perform quite well with a 1060 card! and maybe an SSD.

  3. I am not a gamer, but isn’t maxing out at 8GB of RAM a bit light for a gaming rig?

    1. It would be… but I’m just an idiot and wrote the wrong number. It maxes out at 16GB (Although I’m not sure if that’s actually true — the chip should support 32GB, methinks. The official spec sheet says 16GB though).
