Asus has launched their latest AIO (all-in-one) PC, the ET2030 which carries a retail price tag of RM 2399. Speaking about AIO concept, some may still prefer the traditional PC concept where there is a separate monitor and system unit, with wires running all over. Yes, there is definitely an advantage having those traditional PCs but at the same time, there are a number disadvantages too.
On a traditional PC, you can easily upgrade some major parts e.g. processor or graphics card inside the PC if you need to boost your computer’s performance. However with the current pace technology is heading to, your entire PC might become obsolete when the time comes, requiring you to change the whole unit instead of just changing parts. Well, probably for a gamer or someone in a specific industry, this traditional PC might still be relevant but we personally feel that for rest of us, it is worth getting an AIO such as the Asus ET2030 for these reasons :
- Takes less space.
- Looks less messy. Less wires running around.
- Parts e.g. RAM is still upgradable.
- Comes with 3 years warranty. If any of the computer’s parts fail, you can always claim warranty.
- Blends better when you place it in your living room etc.
The Asus ET2030 AIO has a 10-point multi-touch capacitive display. Not only that, it also supports gesture control. With Advanced Hand-Gesture Recognition Software (HGRS) built into the ET2030, you can perform certain gestures within 5 metres while using multimedia related apps or using the web browser.
