At ROG Unleashed, Asus announced a new Zen AIO PC.
The new Zen AIO Pro Z240IC will use 23.8" IPS displays, operating at either 3840 x 2160 or 1080p resolutions. The system will include up to an Intel 6th Gen (Skylake) Core i7-6700T operating at 2.8 GHz, and it can optionally be paired with either an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M or GTX 950M for mid-range gaming.
For storage options, the system can include up to a 512 GB PCI-E 3.0 x4 M.2 SSD paired with a 1 TB HDD. Users can also choose to just have an SSD, or have up to a 2 TB HDD without an SSD included. The system will also contain up to 32 GB of DDR4-2133 MHz in a dual-channel configuration.
Some systems will include a 2MP Intel RealSense 3D camera, which will allow for the system to be controlled by hand gestures. It will also allow for in-depth 3D video to be recorded or streamed to other users.
For connectivity, the system includes one of the new USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-C USB ports, which will allow users to quickly recharge supported portable devices and to transfer data significantly faster than the older USB 3.0 protocol was capable of.

Depends what you're doing. Should be fine for web browsing / streaming / Photoshop.
It will be awesome to have two Type-C ports, one on each side and both can be used to charge the laptop.. so we can charge it from both sides without the need to wrap the charger cable around...
It was revealed at IFA, just prototype.. with only highlights of it's spec. but now it's officially announced with it's final design & spec. and waiting to be launched soon...
