If you are too busy to set up your own desktop computer, Asus' new G10AC-UPS Windows 8 desktop may be your solution. It has clean lines with a brushed metal finish and cool indicator LED lights.
It runs on a fourth-generation quad-core Intel Core i7-4770 processor, an Asus Nvidia GeForce GT640 graphics processor unit with 3GB of video memory, 16GB of DDR3 system memory and 2TB of hard disk drive storage.
Perhaps the most useful feature of the G10 is its built-in UPS Power Bank. This will keep the PC running for 25 seconds on battery power, enough time to save your documents and shut down the computer safely if there is a sudden power outage.
