The gaming desktop, Asus GR8, is big in performance but small in size. It is so powerful that families are able to enjoy computer games together in the living room. It aims to replace video game consoles, set-top-boxes, and PCs, to be the ultimate home entertainment center. The tower-style design has two solid covers wrapped around the main body. It offers not just good appearance but the integration of high efficient thermal system and customizable hardware. It revolutionizes the thinking of traditional desktop PC design and offers a dynamic yet powerful look.

Evaluation

A terrific desktop being hunted by a bunch of professional game players, it plays high quality videos and sounds, accommodates multiple players, downloads a large part of professional games, connects to other platforms, including PS and Xbox, to amount to a high-efficient video, music and game devices with broad extensions and high compatibility, but never to a fat figure. Its mini stature looks delicate to anticipate future e-sport. The eye-pleasant color scheme and light bring aesthetics to target consumers. Amazingly, video and music files can be transferred among mobiles, tablets and TVs to satisfy dual demands from work and amusement.
