Asus ET2411INTI review

£999 inc VAT

Manufacturer: Asus

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

Excellent build quality, and good all-round performance and features make the Asus ET2411INTI all-in-one PC from Asus an attractive, if slightly pricey, purchase. Here's our Asus ET2411INTI review.

The Asus ET2411INTI's full-HD 23.6in touchscreen strikes a happy medium between the smaller 21.5in all-in-one PCs you'll find in store, which may be a little small for watching a film with friends, and the much larger 27in models which could dominate a small room. See also: Group test: what's the best all-in-one PC?

Solidly built, the Asus ET2411INTI features a real metal stand, and a general build-quality that’s head and shoulders above some cheaper rivals.

A hinged flap on the right of the Asus ET2411INTI conceals a memory-card reader and three USB ports, two of which are USB 3.0 while the other doubles up as an eSATA port. Three more USB ports are placed at the back alongside gigabit ethernet and video ins and outs.

The Asus ET2411INTI display is based on low-cost TN panel technology which suffers from restricted viewing angles. It performed relatively well in our display performance tests, producing consistent colour but the poorest contrast.

Powered by a quad-core Intel Core i5-3450 the Asus ET2411INTI has ample performance for all manner of family PC tasks, especially multimedia. It’s also fitted with an nVidia GT630M graphics processor which more than doubles the gaming performance of the Intel solution.

The ET2411INTI comes with a separate bass speaker which plugs into a dedicated port. It’s nothing like a dedicated home cinema sub, but it does deliver an extra kick to the bass that tiny monitor-based speakers alone can’t deliver. Our review model Asus ET2411INTI 990PT-S60B10100C came without a TV tuner, but it’s available as an extra.

Asus has included a comprehensive software bundle, which includes touch-enabled apps for video chatting, photo browsing and a face-detection automatic logon system using the built-in webcam.

Although the touchscreen works with Windows 7, it falls far short of the requirements for Windows 8, supporting only two touch points.

The Asus ET2411INTI is one of the more impressive-looking Windows all-in-ones. It delivers good ergonomics, great sound quality and solid all-round performance combined with decent software support. However, its two-point touchscreen is not well suited for Windows 8 and the price is high for its poor panel.
