ASUS VivoMini UN65H

HWM (Malaysia) - - TEST - By de­sign, the ASUS VivoMini UN65H looks stylish, com­pact, and will not look out of place on a shelf along­side high-end home the­ater ap­pli­ances. On the top of the de­vice is ASUS' sig­na­ture ‘Zen-in­spired spun-met­al­ef­fect' fin­ish. Turn to the back and you'l

ma­chine for a home or small of­fice.

For the laid­back ex­pe­ri­ence, the VivoMini is com­pat­i­ble with Re­mote Link, which means you can con­trol the PC from your smart­phone. It also comes pre­loaded with ASUS Me­dia Streamer, which lets you stream me­dia con­tent to your PC. Pair with its du­al­band 802.11ac com­pat­i­bil­ity, and you'll get to en­joy en­ter­tain­ment at full res­o­lu­tion with­out wires at­tached.

Those look­ing for a pro­duc­tiv­ity PC will be happy to know that the VivoMini comes with In­tel Small Busi­ness Ad­van­tage, ASUS Busi­ness Man­ager, ASUS Re­mote Man­age­ment Tool, ASUS We­bS­tor­age, and a suite of busi­ness and en­ter­prise ap­pli­ca­tions. It is also fit­ted with a Gi­ga­bit Eth­er­net LAN port.

To see if the VivoMini is truly ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing on its claims, we ran it through our bench­mark tests. The 6th gen­er­a­tion In­tel Core i3-6100U pro­ces­sor in our re­view unit is very ca­pa­ble, but ini­tial up­dates can take close to a full day to be com­pleted.

In our ev­ery­day use, the VivoMini per­forms well. The sys­tem shows no slow­downs while web brows­ing, me­dia stream­ing, or while run­ning the pro­duc­tiv­ity suite. The per­for­mance that we saw is re­flected in its bench­mark re­sults. It scored 2,537 in PCMark 8's Home Ac­cel­er­ated test and 3,545 in the Work Ac­cel­er­ated test, re­spec­tively. These scores are up to par with to­day's pro­duc­tiv­ity PCs.
