Today I present to you the unboxing dell'Asus VivoPC VC60, an interesting aesthetic and PC hardware really peculiar.

First, the packaging is very impressive box with handle

contains the central computer and, in "drawers" side

mouse, power supply, and, in the background, the keyboard

Notice the beauty of the homes parallelepiped-shaped blunt and small external power supply.

A PC VivoPC this really small, 19x19x5, 6cm packs a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5 with 4 GB of RAM. The model had also provided an internal hard disk 500GB 2.5'' but it is always possible, simply by opening the flip top, replace it with a 3.5'' with the screws provided. As another thing upgradable, RAM which can reach up to 16 GB.

Here is the output of the technical characteristics of the hardware detected by hardinfo

Really stunk, also taking into account the available space, the allocation of ports back

DSC_0743 with 10/100/1000 LAN port, 4 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0 for mouse and keyboard. Input and output as well as SPDIF optical audio jack. Comes complete with socket, the kensington lock, a card reader SSD, the classic HDMI, mini display port, and listen, listen, "old" serial RS233. It was a piece that you could not see a PC, even tower, with the serial.

Missing VGA and, unfortunately, though this in the manual, I have not found in the box the converter mini display -> VGA that would permit may also connect two monitors coupled VGA and HDMI.

This instead VESA plate and screws to secure the PC behind the monitor. Hidden inside instead of the PC, WiFi card a respectable supporting 802.11ac .

The version was supplied without an operating system at a truly competitive, supplier, reaches a price that is less than 400 Euros, for a i5 such beauty is truly gifted.

I installed on Debian Linux that has correctly detected all hardware, but, of course, there are models already preconfigured with Windows 8.1.

Next purchase on the horizon ...

    I just bought an asus vc60, I thought it was easier, but I'm stuck in the installation of the operating system, I can not, no dvd, I tried it with a USB key, but I did not succeed. What should I do? Should I buy an external dvd player?
    Thank you very much

    sorry for the comment / questions in Inglese.

    * Rumors Say That VC60, unlike VM40, has no internal speakers for sound: is it true? Or can it produce sound
    * Does the AC wifi card work well in debian wheezy? or did you upgrade to another distribution or change drivers?
    * Did you finally find the hidden mini dipslayport to vga adapter in the box? These are not cheap? (Have one from apple, 29 euros)

    I bought just the same config from the big american site Which sells over Europe but is cheaper in Italy ;) and I do not need windows.

    Thanks for the unboxing / thank you very much :)

    I know, my answers to questions:

    * Wifi does not work yet, I did not try ndis drivers with win: r8821ae is in staging, integration with kernel planned in 3:14 / 3:15 as stable: see https://wikidevi.com/wiki/Realtek_RTL8821AE_Combo_Module and http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/rtl819x
    * Bluetooth Seems to Work

    * Did not find speakers in the sound Gui from gnome, but did not fully open the case to see Whether there are some. HDMI sound works via displayport too.
    * No MiniDisplayPort to VGA adapter as you said: (, the apple one works.
    * The internal hard drive is formatted with NTFS, but Wholly empty (means no FreeDOS OS actually)

    Thank you for your interesting information. The lack of displayport is very frustrating

    Hello Paul
    I too have just bought a V60 VIVOPC i3 ​​without an operating system .... I'm trying to install from a USB (USB with windows 7 64 bit premium) in vain!
    I do not know how to get on .... as soon as I turn it gives me the following error "Bootmgr is missing press ctrl + alt + s to restart"
    I felt a bit 'to change the parameters of the boot of the bios but nothing ..... it does not work
    how did you?? the operating system on the stick works because I've used .....
    THANKS A LOT!
