Asus readies new all-in-one computers, UX-series ultrabook

By on September 26, 2011, 6:30 PM

Asus' is finally rolling out its latest batch of all-in-one computers, the 21.5-inch ET2210, 23.6-inch ET2410 and 27-inch ET2700. The machines were unveiled over a month ago and the medium-sized ET2410 is now available with a starting price of $899 while the smaller and larger variants are poised for arrival sometime in October and November.

Despite their size differences, all three carry 1920x1080 LED-backlight touchscreens, second-generation Intel Core processors, up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM and 1TB of storage. While most all-in-one machines have lackluster built-in audio solutions, Asus boasts that its systems have SonicMaster and DTS technologies along with an optional subwoofer.

The systems rest on an adjustable pedestal and also feature USB 2.0/3.0, eSATA and 802.11n wireless connectivity, HDMI output, a card reader, an optional Blu-ray drive and VESA mounting holes across the board. Certain units will come with a built-in TV tuner and an Nvidia GT540M, but most will be limited to Sandy Bridge's integrated graphics.

In addition to that news, Asus has launched a teaser page for its upcoming UX-series ultrabook. Although details are slim, the company has scheduled an October 11 launch event in New York. The page doesn't mention any specifications, but it does show a sleek aluminum machine that resembles the ultrabooks we've seen elsewhere.

According to the Tech Report, when the site attended Computex in June Asus had an ultrabook on display and claimed it measured 0.67 inches thick, weighed 2.4 pounds and would come with Sandy Bridge Processors, a 6Gb/s solid-state drive, USB 3.0 ports and a seven-hour battery life. We'll be sure to cover it in full when the time comes.
