The ASUS M70AD is the world’s first NFC-enabled desktop PC.
ASUS has released a new desktop PC in the Indian market.

The PC offers a 500GB hard disk drive, a slim DVD drive, 16-in-1 card reader, SonicMaster audio technology along with MaxxAudio from Waves.
The Asus M70AD also comes with a built-in UPS that allows the desktop to shut down safely and save user data in case of power failure. ASUS has also offered 32GB of free web storage on its own cloud service free for three years, along with trial versions of MS Office and antivirus software too.
