Asus has just introduced its new compact PC named Asus VivoMini VC65-C a team prepared for 8th generation Intel processors and to work continuously lit without problems which facilitates its use in professional environments. We are surprised by its modular design with which we can add a floor with space for two extra storage units or an optical unit. Among its other strengths are its elegant metal chassis, its support for Intel Optane, possibility to connect multiple monitors including 4K and have a power supply inside its chassis. Undoubtedly a complete solution like miniPC but that surely premieres at a high price.
