ASUS Introduces NFC-enabled M70 Desktop PC
ASUS has revealed its M70 Desktop PC that's fused with Intel Haswell i7-4770S processors and NFC technology for wireless pairing with Android devices.
The M70 allows users to log onto the PC and launch applications via NFC, while photos in mobile devices can be backed up wirelessly with a simple tap. The ASUS-exclusive NFC Express software automatically backs up photos and videos in Android mobile devices on the desktop. It can also detect and only backup files added since last sync. Quick Launch saves shortcuts to favorite apps, which can then be started with the ease of a single tap. NFC Express also allows for password-free Windows 8 login, so users can go directly into the operating system.
With SonicMaster Technology complementing MaxxAudio from Waves, users are treated to immersive and impactful audio delivery for a cinematic entertainment. The M70 also comes with the ASUS AudioWizard interface, allowing users tailor sound settings with five modes for music, movies, games, voice recording, and speech.
Featuring an angled tower case with a polished metal finish, users can select from a variety of NVIDIA GeForce GT625 2GB graphics cards to suit their multimedia needs. LED indicators housed within the chassis reflect the operational state of any attached external USB storage device.
The M70 also comes equipped with an ASUS Wireless Charger tray for wireless recharging of smartphones and tablets that support the Qi inductive power standard even when computer is shut down. ASUS Ai Charger is a utility that provides faster recharge times for your mobile devices through USB 3.0 even when the M70 is not powered on.
The ASUS M70 Desktop PC is retailing at S$1,300 (without monitor).
