The Near Field Communication (NFC) technology may not be that big a thing in the domestic Indian market, but that hasn't stopped Taiwan-based tech giant Asus from launching the world's first desktop that supports NFC - called Asus M70AD.
The Asus M70AD, which supports Wireless charging and can be paired with other Android-running devices, is powered by the latest 4th generation Intel Core processor which, according to the official press release, offers "improved performance and graphics for the most demanding of tasks," alongside the NFC technology for wireless pairing with Android-based devices.
Before heading into other features the Asus-made desktop offers, let's elaborate a bit on its wireless charging capabilities. Apparently, the Asus M70AD can also charge mobile devices wirelessly. The device has a built-in UPS that acts as a potential power supply for the PC in case there's a power outage.
Also, the ASUS Wireless Charger tray supports Qi inductive power standard even when the computer is shut down, with the Ai Charger utility providing faster recharge for the mobile devices via USB 3.0.
Apart from that, the press release adds, "ASUS M70AD features Sonic Master Technology, and together with MaxxAudio® from Waves, recipient of a Technical GRAMMY® Award, provides users with immersive and impactful audio."
The device runs Windows 8 (64-bit) and comes with a number of Asus-based applications including Asus WebStorage (32GB for 3 years), Asus Launcher, Power Director, Photo Director, and Music Maker Silver. There are trial versions of office and antivirus suites.
The Asus M70AD has been currently priced at Rs 62,000.
