Six cores, AMD graphics, IPS panel, price under three hundred thousand forints: ASUS ‘offer seems promising.
Yes, we tested one machine again: after testing MSI’s high-end model, we now have the ASUS offer turned to us. The Zen product family offers this structure in several configurations, we have now looked more closely at the 23.8 ”version built around AMD Lucienne.
The Zen brand already reveals that elegance and modernity have led designers to design this one. Of course, you don’t have much to do with the monitor, but you can do it with the garnish: under the display we find a fabric-covered part, which hides the speakers optimized by Harman / Kardon. Optically thin on the three sides, but in reality a thicker than the plastic frame a few mm, it got a protrusion on top, which is where the webcam with the physical lock is hidden.
If you approach the Zen AiO 24 from the back, you can see that the actual hardware is hidden in a thicker part in the lower two-thirds of the screen. Its shape is, of course, such that it is virtually invisible from the front, really only visible from the side or back. Unfortunately, it is not possible to open it under normal circumstances, and this also tells you everything you need to know about expandability. The ventilation openings are located in the middle, where the warm air formed inside leaves.
The interfaces have been divided into two groups by ASUS engineers: those on the back that are likely to be used permanently are: three USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI connector (which serves as an output), and a Gigabit Ethernet connector, but also an external power supply. The “intermittent” ports, on the other hand, are in a recess on the left, so they can be accessed while sitting in front of the AiO: here, in addition to the power button, a combined 3.5mm jack for the headset, a USB 3.1 Type-A and a USB 3.1 Type-C is located.
Last left, though, the most distinctive element of the design is the stand, which has an asymmetrical design, is located to the left of the centerline, and connects to the solid metal base not in the middle but in the left rear corner. Unfortunately, the strong metal foot doesn’t have much to offer beyond the sleek exterior: it has no adjustment options other than tilt.
Lastly, let’s not forget the included keyboard and mouse, which aren’t worth wasting a lot of words on, but apparently ASUS has just packed them with the one out of a sense of duty, as their cheap design definitely doesn’t match the Zen AiO with more elegant materials. These are wired, simple, but usable input devices that do their job, of course.
