We still remember the days when a desktop computer meant a gigantic chassis with a huge power supply unit, multitude of drives, motherboard and a whole plethora of add-on cards. And the entire thing weighs a ton, is a loud as a jet taking off and takes up as much space as a wardrobe. We exaggerate a little on the last part but only a little.  Nowadays, desktop computers like the Asus VivoPC VC60 is smaller than a hardback novel, weighs almost nothing and is as quiet as a mouse on stealth mode.

The Asus VivoPC VC60 Desktop PC‘s design is similar to the NUC but unlike the NUC, it is a complete PC that is ready for use right out of the box. It comes configured with either a Core i5 3337U 1.8 GHz or Core i3-3217U 1.8 GHz CPU, 4GB of RAM, 1TB or 500 GB storage and preinstalled with Windows 8.

It has a full range of ports and connectors including 4 USB 2.0 ports and 2 high speed USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, VGA, S/PDIF, Ethernet, WiFi and SD card reader. Just connect to a display, keyboard and mouse and you are good to go. It even comes with dual 2-watt SonicMaster built-in speakers for audio right out of the box. Of course you can always plug in your own stereo speakers via the included 3.5 mm Aux jack. The case is VESA compliant and can be mounted at the back of any VESA compliant flat screen display with the included mounting brackets.

You won’t be playing the latest high-end 3D games on the Asus VivoPC VC60 but it makes for an excellent budget desktop PC, entry level Windows 8 PC or a home theater PC.
