The i91 it says is the world's first network screen with AMD e-Phoenix platform while the i221 will launch as the world's first VoIP network screen with AMD e-Phoenix platform.
nScreen consists of a slimline LCD display, keyboard and mouse and requires the user to follow three steps; plug it in, switch it on and navigate an installation process to get online.
It works with a built-in 1.3M webcam as a Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) videophone for live video chats.
Chee Chung general manager BenQ Australia said the nScreen allows users to surf the net, check emails, view and share digital photography, video chat, watch movies and films, download music and play online games - the functions most utilised by families on the home PC.
"The Australian release of nScreen will enable consumers, whether young or old, technologically challenged or IT educated to better appreciate the virtues of the digital age in which we live," said Chung.
"In fact, BenQ has given special consideration to the marketing of this innovative new product, recognising that older Australians represent a prime market for the 'net-top' revolution.
"As such, the nScreen is fitted with a virtual magnifier function making reading easier, while 'senior mode' lowers high audio frequencies making sound clearer," she added.
The computer can run photo-sharing software the display screen can also function as a large digital photo frame.
Both models of the nScreen run on Microsoft's Windows XP Home edition and come with built-in speakers, a microphone, USB port, and a memory card reader (MS, MS-Pro, SD, MMC).
"The nScreen is all about simplicity - it provides the perfect household appliance to serve today's most relevant internet applications without the need to accommodate bulky processing components and the unsightly wiring and connections associated with the desktop PC," added Chung.
