ASUS Nova P20 Mini PC Review


The ASUS Nova P20 is a mini console-like desktop PC that looks poised to deliver a multimedia experience for your senses. Clad in a glossy piano black finish and featuring a sleek design, the Nova P20 is definitely eye candy all around. But will it...

If you find yourself in need of more space and can make do with a simple functional PC for just Internet surfing and watching DVD movies, then keep the ASUS Nova P20 in mind. If you're looking for a proper HTPC, then you're mostly likely out of luck....

A teaser of a great workhorse PC, we just hope Asus can get the price down on release.

Asus Nova P20 mini desktop computer


It's a full-spec PC the size of a hard-back book, a valiant attempt by Asus to take computing away from ugly PC towers. Is the Nova a real star, or a black dwarf?
