ASUS introduces the ET2300, a new 23" Windows 8 All-in-One PC with a 1920 x 1080 pixels IPS LCD screen with 10-point multi-touch input. The system features Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 series processors and comes with integrated Intel graphics or NVIDIA's GT630M and comes with a built-in subwoofer. You can get it with up to 8GB DDR3 1600MHz memory, up to 2TB of HDD storage, a slot-loading DVD drive, HDMI input and output, WiDi, eSATA, USB 3.0 and optional Thunderbolt.
One of the special features of the ET2300 is that you can fold it together, turning it into a tablet-like device. Not sure if this feature is really all that useful, but it does make the computer easier to transport.
ASUS today announces the ET2300 All-in-One PC Series — a fully-fledged desktop PC with a 23” multi-touch display. With Intel® i7 desktop processors, lifelike audio and user ergonomics all incorporated in its sleek and neat design, the ET2300 is perfect for productivity and home entertainment. The ET2300 has a unique double-hinge design that allows it to be used both as a traditional desktop with an upright display and as a digital canvas that folds flat parallel to the table top. It is the first All-in-One PC with a built-in array speaker and subwoofer, an external subwoofer, and ASUS SonicMaster technology — these enable the ET2300 to deliver incredible acoustic fidelity unheard from other PCs. In addition, Intel® Thunderbolt™, Intel® Wireless Display (WiDi), and USB 3.0 provide flexible and future-proof connectivity.
High-performance specifications with ultra-fast connectivity
The ASUS ET2300 is powered by the 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i7 desktop processor with discrete NVIDIA® GT630M (1GB/2GB) or Intel® HD 2500/4000 graphics for impressive performance. WiDi makes it easy to enjoy audio, video and photos with family and friends through seamless wireless streaming to WiDi-enabled HDTVs. Two Intel® Thunderbolt™ and four USB 3.0 ports provide ultra-fast data transfer speeds and flexible expansion options, while HDMI input turns the ET2300 into an HD display for game consoles and Blu-ray players.
10-point multi-touch screen with an innovative hinge design
The ASUS ET2300 has an innovative double-hinge design that allows it to fold flat parallel to the table top for easy and intuitive use of Windows 8 apps on its 10-point multi-touch 23” display. A 178° wide-view angle IPS display ensures clear and vibrant images, making the ET2300 an ideal shared entertainment platform for all family members.
The best audio ever on an All-in-One
The ASUS ET2300 is the first All-in-One PC to use an array speaker and an internal subwoofer to deliver an expanded soundstage with immersive, cinematic surround sound. Developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team of audio experts, SonicMaster technology further refines sound quality for a wide frequency range that reproduces every acoustic detail. In addition, the external subwoofer extends bass response by a full octave.
