      Small in size, big for business

      ASUS VivoMini crams all the business functions you need in a mini PC that's only slightly bigger than your wallet. VivoMini is powered by a choice of 4th generation Intel processors, features Intel HD graphics, extensive I/O connectivity, and multi-display support. A perfect combination of hardware and software, VivoMini is a complete business package that's easy to monitor and manage. It's super-quiet and energy-efficient too, making it ideal for the office.

      Ultra compact

      ASUS VivoMini has a compact, lightweight design that measures just 131 x 131 x 42mm – giving it a footprint that's just slightly bigger than your wallet. The space-saving dimensions of VivoMini free up precious desktop space, and its modern Zen-inspired concentric circle finish is easy on the eye and fits anywhere in the office. VivoMini can be VESA-mounted on the back of a display too, or can sit unattended and hidden from view for a tidy, clutter-free workstation.

      * Testing configuration: UN62 | Windows 8.1 | Intel® Core™ i5-4210U Processor | DDR3L-1600 8G x 2 | mSATA 128GB SSD

      Industry Avg.

      Ultra-low power consumption

      ASUS VivoMini keeps the environment in mind, and

      delivers incredible energy efficiency thanks to an ultra-low

      power design that draws as little as 6.95W at idle– as

      much as an LED light bulb. This means you can leave

      VivoMini on overnight to download software updates or

      back-up files, all without racking up electricity bills.

      ASUS VivoMini operates in remarkable silence thanks to optimized low-speed fan settings that keep noise levels down to just 18.5dB at idle, the same as the sound made by falling leaves. And it doesn't get much noisier at full load, either – at just 26.3dB, that's quieter than a library and is 60% below the industry standard. The optimized fan also lowers operating temperatures, giving you silent, stable performance.
