ASUS Mini PC UN68U

Technology is getting smaller, faster and more effective, and the ASUS VivoMini UN68U is an example of where miniature PC technology is going. This little unit promises to do most of your standard desktop computing and it can fit in the palm of your hand, or in your bag for easy travel.

The ASUS VivoMini UN68U comes with Windows 10 Professional preinstalled and is the recommended operating system by ASUS. Other Windows editions are available on request, but I would suggest checking with ASUS first.

Portable and Fast

The ASUS VivoMini UN68U is the product for you when you need the power of a desktop system wrapped up in a smaller and portable package – without having to compromise on power or storage space.

The device can deliver desktop like performance through the processing power of Intel’s 8th generation processors – either 8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 or i5 Kaby Lake R and DDR4 2400MHz support.

Plug & Play Ease

ASUS Mini PC UN68U Ports

Don’t let the small size of the ASUS VivoMini fool you. The UN68U is feature packed and comes with enough ports to connect any additional equipment. For example, you can connect a mouse, keyboard, webcam or Ethernet connection through the traditional ports you are already familiar with.

The ASUS VivoMini UN68U also comes with two front-mounted USB 3.1 ports for fast USB charging, and ultra-fast data transfer to and from USB-connected devices. It allows you to connect what you need to when you need it with ease.

Dual-Storage Design and High-Capacity HDD

The VivoMini comes equipped with special Dual Storage design, giving you more space to store the important things, whether you’re using the system for work or play. It can even be set up as a dual-boot system.

The large-capacity HDD and memory acceleration capabilities ensure high-speed data performance and additional storage for when it really matters. Similarly, data transfer through the ASUS VivoMini UN68U is ultra-fast and is powered by NVM Express® support for data transfers of as fast as 32Gbps.

Operation is Whisper-Quiet

The ASUS VivoMini UN68U miniature computer performs at whisper-quiet volumes, even when it’s undertaking a particularly resource-heavy workload – and the unique cooling system installed in the VivoMini ensures that the system will never become too hot, even when under a lot of pressure.

High-Quality 4k Streaming

Streaming quality always matters, and the ASUS VivoMini UN68U offers superior 4k high-quality streaming with Wi-Fi along with more free extras like the ASUS Media Streamer app to enhance your video streaming experience.

The ASUS also comes with more added extras that can enhance your media experience even further. Along with the ASUS Media Streamer app, you also get the ASUS Remote GO! and a free 100GB of storage space through the ASUS WebStorage cloud to store your most important information, memories and other data.

Final Thoughts

A pocket rocket comes to mind when playing around with the ASUS VivoMini UN68U. It’s great for programmers, journalists and students who need a portable but ultra-fast system where tablets and/or laptops are not suitable. Similarly, it’s a great little media centre PC capable of 4K streaming.
