ASUS VivoPC VM40B-02 Celeron 1007U Review

ASUS VivoPC VM40B-02 comes as a solid machine which offers great performance as Home Theater Personal Computer (HTPC). It is appreciably small, weighing just 2.6 pounds and easy to upgrade. It is underpowered slightly out of box, though comes with several upgrades and is highly versatile.

The electronic device employs Intel High Definition integrated graphics implying users can play the latest games with it. It comes with 4GB RAM, which is upgradeable to 16GB, through the removable top section. It may be necessary to carry out this upgrade when planning to play 1080p HD content, but the VM40B-02 is still able to play well without conducting this operation.



The disk-based hard drive can clock speeds of 5400 RPM, which is shy of the 7200RPM expected with platter-based hard drives. You may upgrade this to SD disk drive, but there might be increased noise and heat, which could affect overall performance. Size of ASUS VivoPC VM40B-02 is quite impressive, as you can place it almost anywhere without difficulty. It is incredibly light, but also flat, meaning it can withstand rough treatment without getting easily damaged. VivoPC comes with built-in HDMI port for easy hook-ups to HDTV and majority of new monitors. It also features VGA port as fallback, in case your computer monitor lacks HDMI-in port.



A 2-in-1 MMC/SD card slot is present at the computer front, with wired mouse and keyboard being included. ASUS has provided 12 months worth of 100GB Web Storage to users who acquire the VivoPC. The device also comes with small speakers fitted in rated at 2 watts. ASUS employs Sonic Master sound technology, which helps in amplifying the sound which the miniature speakers generate.



The VivoPC is offered to users at fair pricing and may perform much better as HTPC than dedicated desktop computer. Both its memory and hard drive are easy to upgrade, ensuring it can last for long. Depending on how much you invest on this device, it brings along multiple functionality options, including networked backup gadget, which comes with hard drive of larger size. You may also have dedicated media hub to which other gadgets may network for all multimedia content.



In summary, ASUS VivoPC VM40B-02 Celeron 1007U boasts having an array of helpful features. These include Intel Celeron 1007U which operates at 1.5GHz, 4GB DDR3 memory, 500GB 5400RPM hard disk drive, 4 USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports and Intel High Definition Graphics. The device has flash memory of 100GB, features Windows 8.1 operating system and has wireless 802.11a/b/g/n/ac wireless Wi-Fi connectivity. The electronic box measures 7.48 x 2.21 x 7.48 inches in terms of Length by Width by Height and is available in silver color. This gadget sports the same spun-metal design found on other products from ASUS, making it appears exquisite.
