Finally a PC is here which addresses the eternal problem of unexpected power shutdowns that people face in India. This uncertain power scenario of India has prompted Indian desktop users to chip in extra money into the purchase of an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). For entrepreneurs who are setting up a new office it is an extra burden to put valuable investment into a larger UPS which is more expensive. The indian computer purchaser is always faced with an eternal dilemma of whether to purchase a laptop and save on the UPS investment or purchase a desktop and put that extra money on a UPS. There are pros and cons to each option. A laptop has the benefits of easy portability and power backup. But the cons are that it is more expensive and costs more money than a desktop for the same computing power and has small screens! A desktop is cheaper, has larger monitor and more computing power, but its power usage is more. It also no power backup for those times when the power company pulls out the lights.
I have always felt a need for a hybrid PC which has most features of a desktop but has the benefits of a laptop too like power backup. And ASUS ET2040 addresses this beautifully.
There are other great features in this PC too:
- Space is always a constraint in our Indian homes. And, this PC takes care of it perfectly. It is almost like a laptop but with a 19.5 inch screen. On the desk, it occupies lesser space than a laptop!
- It can act as a perfect entertainment center allowing for gesture control of the OS without the use of the mouse or keyboard. You can sit far away from the laptop and control when the PC plays a video/music by just waving your hand.
- It has got all your multi-media needs taken care of by providing a port for everything USB 2.0, USB 3.0, HDMI, 3-in-1 card reader, audio in and out and behold this: a kensington lock port too! So, you can make this a corporate desktop too and secure it to the table for those times when you are off for a tea/coffee.
- It comes with great in-built applications like PhotoDirector to edit pictures, PowerDirector to create great videos at home, Music Maker Jam to create great studio like music, Asus WebStorage to provide you with 100GB of online storage space and many other great softwares.
- It really has a great 19.5 inch LED screen with backlight to give you more crisp colors. So, you can watch your movies on the computer itself.
