    ASUS VivoPC VM42-S088V PC

    ASUS VivoPC
    Small yet powerful mini PC
    Imagine all the functionalities of a traditional desktop PC in a chic, compact box with a footprint slightly larger than a standard DVD jewel case. Stop imagining and meet the ASUS VivoPC.

    Powered by the 4th gen Intel® processor, and featuring SonicMaster Technology, the new VivoPC is the answer to your day-to-day computing needs; and provides you with a cinematic multimedia experience. The small form factor even includes Vivo DualBay for flexible dual storage options so you can speed up the operating system or have even more space for movies and music.

    Vivo DualBay - Flexible dual storage design
    VivoPC VM42 features a unique dual storage design that can accommodate up to two storage drives. So whether you’re after larger storage capacities or faster data access speeds, you can mix and match between hard disk and solid state drive to better suit your needs.

    If you’re looking for space to house your movie or music libraries, use a single 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch hard disk drives. Alternatively, you can choose a combination of 2.5-inch hard disk and solid state drive to speed up your operating system.

    Easy-access for DIY upgrades
    VivoPC keeps things simple when it's time for an upgrade. A user-friendly slide-out cover gives you quick, easy access to its internals for DIY memory and hard drive upgrades.

    Future-proofing home entertainment
    The VivoPC VM42 packs powerful 4th generation Intel® Celeron processor and powerful integrated graphics for incredibly-detailed visuals. Kick back and relax with ASUS VivoPC while browsing the web, viewing photos from your SD card and watching videos with HD playback.

    Pitch-perfect audio
    External speakers? You don't need them. VivoPC has everything you need right out of the box. Built-in SonicMaster speakers and MaxxAudio tuning ensures pitch-perfect audio, every time.

    Intuitive audio effect setting
    SonicMaster and AudioWizard audio utilities found on VivoPC ensure the best sound for your movies and music. A few simple clicks load up optimized audio setting for your Hollywood blockbuster or ripping guitar solos.

    Cloud access anytime, anywhere
    ASUS HomeCloud creates a world without boundaries. It lets you access your VivoPC remotely, stream multimedia content to wherever you want, and manage all your files anywhere — no matter where it's stored. It even turns your hard drive into a private cloud. VivoPC comes with a year’s worth of 100GB of ASUS WebStorage free, so your files in the cloud can be accessed on any device with an internet connection.

    Wi-Fi GO!
    Wi-Fi GO! gives you complete control of your PC — even when you're away from home! Access your forgotten files at home, work on your PC while you are in the traffic or outside. Plus one step to manage all your public clouds or sync files among your PC and devices in a click.

    Stable and fast wireless connections
    VivoPC ensures stable fast connections with dedicated antennas for its 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands; while a hotspot function lets other devices piggy-back on your VivoPC's web connection.

    Faster Wi-Fi speeds and wireless control
    Surf your favorite webpages or stream movies and music from online libraries more smoothly with the Wi-Fi. Wi-Fi GO! technology gives you full control over VivoPC without having to get up off the couch - it turns your smartphone or tablet into a remote control where you can access VivoPC through the remote desktop function and virtual keyboard or mouse.
