ASUS Adds New Models To Its Desktop PC and All-in-One PC Line-up
ASUS has added the ET1620 all-in-one PC, EeeBox EB1036 and the EB1037 desktop PCs, and the ultra-small form factor (USFF) BT1AD and BT1AE desktop PCs to its commercial ASUSPRO PC range.
All models feature the latest Intel processors and are designed for small-to-medium businesses. They offer space-saving design along with management and security features - including the new and exclusive ASUS Business Manager.
ASUS Business Manager is a set of software tools that simplifies routine maintenance and optimization tasks such as software and system updates, physical and password security, backup and recovery, plus power management configuration.
Configuration and monitoring of system management features such as hard disk password protection, I/O port locking and asset tagging is made easier with the intuitive mouse-controlled UEFI BIOS.
ASUS commercial desktops and all-in-one PCs also feature a Kensington Lock slot that provides added physical anti-theft protection.
An additional security option for ASUSPRO desktop models is a Trusted Platform Model (TPM) chip, which ensures that sensitive information like keys, passwords, and digital certificates remain safe from external attacks, physical theft, and other types of intrusion.
Designed to meet the needs of applications such as point-of-sale (POS), self-service machines or digital signage, the ET1620 is an all-in-one PC with a 15.6-inch capacitive 10-point multi-touch display. It is powered by an Intel Celeron quad-core processor and comes equipped with multiple I/O ports - including two serial ports, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports. Its dual video outputs (HDMI and VGA) allow ET1620 to be connected to any external monitor or large-screen TV if necessary. Additionally, an optional NFC (Near Field Communication) module can be installed.
ET1620's space-saving design, with a slim 1.3 cm bezel, make it ideal for public-facing use or where space is at a premium, and its 2 kg weight mean it's easily transportable. ET1620 can even be wall-mounted, thanks to its VESA-mount-compatible design.
The EB1036 and EB1037 are the latest additions to the ASUSPRO EeeBox range of ultra-compact PCs, a product family suited for use in thin client and digital signage applications. Despite their tiny one-liter volume, 0.7 kg weight and low power consumption, the EB1036 and EB1037 can handle multitasking applications, thanks to the significantly increased performance and power efficiency of their next-generation Intel Celeron processors. Featuring both HDMI and VGA video outputs, EB1036 and EB1037 support dual simultaneous displays. EB1036 additionally features a built-in serial (COM) port that allows the easy connection of business peripherals such as barcode scanners, serial printers and LED text displays.
The new ASUSPRO BT1AD and BT1AE are designed around the 4th-generation Intel Core processors. The BT1AE also incorporates Intel vPro technology and an embedded TPM chip to provide hardware-based malware protection, data security and remote manageability. As with all ASUSPRO desktop PCs, BT1AE has the option to include ASUS Inventory and Out-of-Band Management, which helps reduce the cost of identifying and managing hardware and software throughout the enterprise, and throughout the product lifecycle.
With DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and VGA video outputs, BT1AE has the ability to run up to three independent external displays simultaneously without the need for extra hardware. BT1AE has a modular, tool-free design and its range of I/O ports includes USB 2.0, USB 3.0, plus optional serial and parallel ports.
