Asus yesterday unveiled an updated range of all-in-one PCs, including its flagship 10-point touch screen ET2700 series.

The PC maker is selling the 27-inch, all-in-one consumer desktop as a multi-purpose home technology hub.

The wall-mountable ET2700 has an integrated blu-ray drive, built-in HD TV tuner and LED backlit 1920x1080 contrast for television viewing, as well external subwoofer, surround sound and audio technology designed for use as a sound system.

The capacitive touch screen recognises ten points of touch input including pan, zoom, rotate, press, tap and flick gestures.

The desktop runs on an Intel Core i5 or i7 chip and Windows 7, but has been designed with Windows 8 in mind and will be upgradable when the operating system launches later this year.

It weighs just over 13kg, holds up to 8GB RAM, stores up to 2TB, and features two USB 3.0 ports as well as an SD card reader.

The ET2700 joins a family of all-in-one consumer desktop PCs, with 24-inch, 22-inch, 20-inch and 16-inch models currently available.

Asus hinted that a 23-inch ET2320 series was in the works but declined to provide further information on pricing or launch date.

The ET2700 is on sale now for $2999 from Harvey Norman. It ships with a keyboard and mouse.
