Asus meet - IndiBlogger! A long awaited one

And after a long, long wait of another fun meet from IndiBlogger in Bangalore, the first meet of 2015. The evening started with the home band playing some non-understandable English numbers (tongue-in-cheek) and our favourite host Anoop was seen playing bass guitar in full rhythm and non-decodable expressions. And then the main part of the evening, the Asus technical head explained about the two of their latest computing gadgets launched in India on 26th of January, 2015.


Mobile performance, elegantly crafted

The Asus EeeBook X205 is an affordable 11.6-inch Windows 8.1 notebook (I say it's netbook) that weighs less than 1 kg and has a compact, space-saving design (ultra thin, 1.75 cm, finger width size approx.). This model allows you to surf the net up to 12 hours on a full charge (Ain't it charming!). Windows 8.1 with Bing gives you full compatibility with software and peripherals when compared to other operating systems. MS Office 365 included and Quad-core processor for smooth multi-tasking performance and smartphone touch screen-like precision give EeeBook a distinct advantage.

ASUS  ET2040

19.5-inch All-in-One PC with built-in backup power, innovative hands-free gesture control and full I/O connectivity

  • Smart backup power prevents data loss up to one hour

If you've ever lost files due to sudden loss of electrical power — whether caused by brownouts, blackouts or even accidental unplugging by pets or children — you'll appreciate ET2040's clever built-in backup power*. Unlike other all-in-one PCs that rely completely on mains power to work, ET2040 will keep on working for up to one hour if the power is lost — automatically! This gives you plenty of time to save all your open files and documents.

  • Intuitive gesture control for hands-free entertainment

Hands-free entertainment

Imagine controlling multimedia players or browsing the internet from up to five meters away from your computer. ASUS All-in-One PC ET2040 makes it all possible with advanced Hand-Gesture Recognition Software (HGRS) that uses the built-in camera to accurately interpret movements. Play songs or videos, adjust player settings, or zoom and rotate photos — all from a distance, without ever touching a screen, keyboard or mouse

  • Comprehensive array of I/O ports with three USB 3.0, three USB 2.0 and HDMI-output

The ASUS All-in-One PC ET2040 is the simple, elegant answer to all your home computing needs. It's stylish and slim, and fits into any space in your home of office. But don't be deceived by its space-saving size — ET2040 breezes through everyday computing tasks, thanks to its lightning-fast Intel® processor and high-performance graphics. It has plenty of room for all your stuff, too, with a 1TB hard drive plus 100GB cloud storage on ASUS WebStorage for free. Moreover, ET2040 is built with smart backup power, so it's immune to power cuts! For even more peace of mind, ET2040 has the proven reliability of ASUS desktop PCs — as says, “If you want a Windows desktop PC, ASUS is the best choice”.

After the Asus presentation and Q&A part got over, we were again put through fun-building games by splitting us in teams and ask us to deliver a presentation on 
Promote Blogging
based on the secret themes given to the respective Captains of the teams --- Aye, aye Captain! Ahoy!!

The dinner served was really good and the dessert offered was a sumptuous end to the fun-filled evening. Well one last thing, we expected to receive IndiBlogger t-shirts this time but .... maybe some other time, no regrets!

P.S. -- This post is in association with IndiBlogger Asus meet held yesterday (30th January, 2015) at ITC Gardenia, Bengaluru.
