    A mini PC of epic proportions

    ASUS VivoMini crams all your home computing needs in a mini PC that's only slightly bigger than your wallet. VivoMini is powered by a choice of 4th generation Intel processors, and has Intel HD graphics, extensive I/O connectivity, making it ideal for home entertainment. A perfect combination of hardware and software, VivoMini even features ASUS HomeCloud so you can stream content and control VivoMini remotely – making it an ideal home theater solution. And what's more, it's super-quiet and energy-efficient, too.

    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 home. VivoMini can be VESA-mounted on the back of a display too, so you can create your custom All-in-One (AiO) PC for a clutter-free environment.

    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.
