Other features of the new mini PC include a massive 6 x USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA as well as COM ports together with an SD card reader out connectivity provided by support for 802.11ac wireless communication. Asus explains more :
VivoMini VC65 Series. The VC65 and VC65R mini PCs feature a versatile modular design with three storage and optical drive configurations1 for increased performance, productivity, and entertainment. They are the world’s smallest mini PCs that can accommodate up to four 2.5-inch SSD or HDD storage modules.
VivoMini VC65 Series mini PCs are designed for a wide range of computing tasks for the home or office, and are powered by up to desktop-grade 6th-generation Intel Core processors. The top-of-the-line VivoMini VC65R model features built-in RAID support, making it ideal for a network attached storage (NAS) or mini server system. These mini PCs feature a compact design with an embedded power adapter, and can be placed horizontally or vertically. VivoMini VC65 Series can also be VESA-mounted.
The higher-specification VivoMini VC65R features RAID support, and can be used as a NAS or mini media server for professional media production. This arrangement not only improves data access speeds and performance, but also gives users data management flexibility. RAID also provides data redundancy and resiliency, and is suitable for data management in hospitality or commercial establishments.
