ASUS today announced the PT2001 Portable All-in-One (AiO) PC, which combines a HD+ 19.5-inch Windows 8.1 tablet and a touchscreen desktop PC in one space-saving, convenient and portable device. Powered by the latest 4th-generation Intel® Core™ processors, optional powerful discrete graphics, and featuring a rechargeable battery, it can be used as a traditional PC or a large-format tablet anywhere around the home or office. A convenient flip-out handle makes it easy to carry the powerful and energy-efficient PT2001 anywhere.
Uncompromising performance, effortless portability
PT2001 is powered by up to a 4th-generation Intel Core processor and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® 820M graphics for superb multitasking and smooth graphics performance. Weighing only 3.3kg and featuring a sturdy carry handle — which folds away when not in use — Portable AiO is easy to carry and set up anywhere, even away from a power outlet thanks to its internal rechargeable battery that lasts up to five hours. PT2001 has a slim design that tapers to just 12.3mm at its thinnest point, making it look sleek and stylish in any setting.
The centerpiece of PT2001 is its HD+ (1600 x 900) 19.5-inch IPS 10-point multi-touch display, which provides a crisp and vivid image for immersive entertainment experiences. Its precise and accurate touch sensors ensure smooth and intuitive control of Windows 8.1 and touch-based apps or games. The adjustable aluminum hinge makes PT2001 easy to lay flat for playing touch-based games or enjoying movies and photos with friends and family. For use on a table or desk, the pull-out kickstand provides solid support, and folds flush into the back when not needed.
Designed for shared enjoyment
To enhance the enjoyment of movies, music and games, PT2001 uses ASUS SonicMaster audio technology for amazingly-rich sound that has deep, refined bass and is crystal-clear even at higher volumes. Optional 802.11ac Wi-Fi support delivers stunningly fast network speeds for stutter-free video-streaming and a responsive internet experience. Two convenient HDMI ports make it easy to connect PT2001 to an HDTV or external display to take the entertainment experience to an even larger screen. With the built-in Miracast technology, users also can stream photos and videos wirelessly to a compatible large-screen TV or display, allowing easy sharing with friends and family. While streaming, users can continue to edit files, surf the Internet, read emails, and even play games.
Portable AiO PT2001 features innovative gesture control that lets users interact with and control the PC from a distance with simple gestures, allowing them to read books, browse the internet or control movies and music with a wave of the hand. PT2001 includes optional support for Near-Field Communication (NFC) to provide a convenient and enhanced user experience. Used together with an NFC-enabled mobile device, PT2001 provides additional features such as instant Windows logon without typing a password, automatic photo and video backup from the mobile device to PT2001, and direct access to files on the mobile device.
Advanced connectivity features such as two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, plus a versatile 3-in-1 card reader, give PT2001 much more flexibility than any ordinary tablet. Its thin and light portable design means users benefit from all the connectivity features normally associated with a desktop PC, but with the ultimate convenience and portability of a tablet.
