A seamless integration of a desktop PC with the usability of a multi-touch LCD display, it’s an easy fit for any living room, den or office.
Designed as a timeless piece, the Z5610 boasts simple purposeful details such as an illuminated strip between the LCD and sound bar, which helps users see the keyboard in a darkened environment.

Elevated by two chrome legs, users can discretely stow away the keyboard under the desktop to further free up workspace and maximize the system’s multi-touch capabilities.
