It has been revealed that Asus will be upgrading their range of Asus VivoPC Mini PCs to include Haswell processors, and is expected to make them available to purchase next month with prices starting from around $300.
The original Asus VivoPC Mini PC range was equipped with Intel Celeron and Core i5 Ivy Bridge processors, however this week the Notebook Italia website is reporting that Asus is gearing up to roll out 4th generation Intel processors to the systems very soon.
The new Asus VivoPC Mini PC range includes both an entry-level model as well as a more powerful Asus VivoPC VM62N system that is equipped with a Core i3-4030U processor. Supported by NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M graphics together with Intel HD 4400 graphics. While the lower end Asus VivoPC VM42 is equipped with a Celeron Haswell processor and integrated graphics.
Asus has equipped both systems with 16GB of RAM together with spaces for a 3.5 inch drive and a second, 2.5 inch hard drive or solid state disk (SSD) if required. Other features of the range include 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, together with ports for Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, DisplayPort and S/PDIF. As well as a SDXC card reader and a selection of both USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports to connect peripherals.
Unfortunately no information on official pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet by Asus, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
