This year's Computex Taipei kicked off May 30 and is slated to wrap up on June 3. During the event, #Asus debuted its #Zen AiO ZN242, breathing new life into the existing 24-inch designs, complete with the inclusion of Core i7-7700HQ quad-core CPU from Intel.

Asus showcased a slew of thin and light #Windows 10-powered ZenBook and VivoBook laptops at Computex. The recently debuted laptop lineup boasts some of Windows 10 much-lauded features such as Windows Hello, which facilitates fast and secure login, digital personal assistant Cortana, Windows Ink for adding notes to map, and Windows Defender just to name a few.

The ZN242 specifications & features

The Zen AiO ZN242 packs 32GB of RAM and GeForce GTX 1050 GPU from NVIDIA, making this recently launched all-in-one an ideal device for mainstream gaming at 1080p.

Truly, the 23.8-inch IPS panel supports FHD i.e. 1920x1080 pixels. Moreover, it features what Asus dubs as NanoEdge. In other words, it sports a 2mm bezel giving the display a considerable 90 percent screen-to-body ratio, according to the Taiwanese tech firm.

The ZN242 comes with a radically revamped stand that features an entirely different design as compared to its precursors, but that's not all. It has a pop-up infrared camera, which, in collaboration with Windows Hello, facilitates facial recognitionfrom up to an impressive 4m away.

The Zen AiO ZN242 - Under the hood

Under the hood, the system packs a 512GB PCIe SSD (solid-state drive) or an HDD (Hard disk drive), paired with Optane memory from Intel -- we are likely to bump into several new systems with similar options this week. Much to the dismay of tech buffs, Asus has not divulged details aside from the maximum configuration thus, making it nearly impossible to hazard a guess regarding other options as far as CPUs and GPUs are concerned.

According to Elana Pidgeon, Junior Editor, Windows Blog, the ZN242 is devised to deliver the most preeminent all-in-one computing experience. However, more details are quite hard to come by. It will be interesting to see what sort of ventilation the device will employ, especially taking this kind of processing power and distinct graphics into consideration.

There are vents beneath the chassis, and a vented Asus logo is placed on the rear. The Zen AiO ZN242 will hit the store shelves in September, an Asus representative said. Meanwhile, other shreds of information including pricing and color gamut support were not even mentioned.
