Fremont, California (November 12, 2015) — ASUS today announced the 23.8-inch Zen AiO Pro, a premium all-in-one PC that fuses art with industry-leading technology. Equally adept at work or play, the Zen AiO Pro strikes a perfect balance between beauty and performance to deliver the ultimate all-in-one computing experience.
A true masterpiece
The Zen AiO Pro is a masterpiece of craftsmanship and design, with a slim unibody shell and integral stand forged from aluminum. The sophisticated appearance is enhanced by a layer of edge-to-edge glass covering the display, while the rear cover has a brushed-metal finish that complements the spun-metal concentric circles on the front fascia. A vision of elegance, the Zen AiO Pro’s exterior is anodized a stylish yet subtle Icicle Gold color that adds a touch of beauty to any space.
Extreme beauty with extreme performance
The Zen AiO Pro is built to provide extraordinary performance for those with discerning tastes. It combines the latest quad-core Intel® 6th Generation Core™ processors with up to 16GB of DDR4 memory and up to a 512GB PCI Express 3.0 x4 M.2 SSD. There’s power to spare for work and play, with instant responsiveness and ultra-fast load times.
Dedicated NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX™ graphics with up to 2GB of video memory make the Zen AiO Pro a capable gaming machine. Popular titles run well at the native resolution, while cutting-edge games look great and play smoothly at 1080p.
The Zen AiO Pro is the world’s first all-in-one PC to support USB 3.1 Gen 2, which delivers blindingly-fast data transfers up to 10Gbit/s — twice the speed of USB 3.0. Copying files to and from external storage takes no time at all. Faster performance also comes with improved usability. USB 3.1 is provided through a Type-C port whose reversible connector can’t be inserted the wrong way around.
For other devices, the Zen AiO Pro has four USB 3.0 ports, plus one USB 2.0. Support for the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard is built in along with Bluetooth 4.0 and Gigabit Ethernet.
A stunning display and incredible sound
Designed for multimedia entertainment, the Zen AiO Pro has an IPS touchscreen that covers 100% of the sRGB color gamut. Wide viewing angles ensure the colors look vibrant whether you’re sitting dead center or off to the side. With up to a 4K/Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution that offers four times the pixels of 1080p, the display produces pin-sharp visuals that expose every detail. UHD movies and high-resolution photos look amazingly lifelike.
The audio system delivers clear, full-range sound that’s free of distortion even with the volume turned up. Six integrated speakers are split between dual eight-watt stereo channels at either side of the Zen AiO Pro, producing realistic separation with enough power to fill a room.
New modes of PC interaction
The Zen AiO Pro is available with an Intel RealSense™ camera that supports futuristic interactions. You can log in to Windows 10 using your face as a password, add green-screen effects to videos in real time, and use physical gestures to control games and applications. And that’s just what you can do today — the possibilities for future applications are endless.
Software to host a personal cloud and interact with mobile devices
ASUS software integrates the Zen AiO Pro into more of your digital world. HomeCloud lets you host your very own personal cloud storage, with wireless access to your files from any mobile device. The Zen AiO Pro also comes with 100GB of free ASUS WebStorage for one year, and you can sync with HomeCloud to automatically generate off-site backups or mirror select files online.
PC Link projects a mobile device’s screen to the Zen AiO Pro, allowing incoming calls and app notifications to be monitored on the PC. This frees users from the hassle of checking their mobile device while using the machine.
Share Link enables wireless file transfers between the Zen AiO Pro and mobile devices, while SyncUp automatically syncs files, with customizable settings to allow seamless editing from any device.

The Zen AiO Pro starts at $999. Select configurations are available now, with additional models coming soon.
