Asus launches ultra-compact VivoPC

This Windows 8 home theatre PC stands just 56mm tall and has 802.11ac support.

Computex is always jam packed with announcements, but the VivoPC from Asus seems to have flown well under the radar.

The home-theatre PC boasts a tiny form factor: just 56mm tall, with "a footprint smaller than a sheet of A4 paper", according to Asus, and all wrapped in a quite stylish spun metal finish.

There's not a lot more information, but it will run on Intel hardware (including Intel-integrated graphics), and has two USB 3.0 ports and four USB 2.0 ports, along with support of 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Asus has also packed in its SonicMaster audio technology, with external speakers on the VivoPC itself.

The company isn't talking pricing or what regions the VivoPC will be available in, but that information should start trickling out around Q3 this year.
