Following the 27 inch VG278HE the new ASUS VG248QE monitor continues the 144Hz trend, but this time in a 24-inch package. It has been purpose-designed for high-performance NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 or ‘fast’ 2D gaming, where the increased refresh rate gives incredibly smooth on-screen motion.
The VG248QE has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and an 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio and 1ms (G2G) response time. It includes a full complement of HDMI, DisplayPort and dual-link DVI-D ports, and the display itself has tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustments.
For those wanting immense color and a 16:10 aspect ratio (1920 x 1200) over speed, the ProArt range has also been updated with the new PA249Q. It features a pre-calibrated IPS panel (∆E <5) and six-axis color control to yield the most accurate wide gamut color space reproduction — 99% Adobe RGB, 103% NTSC and 100% sRGB. Other features include the ASUS exclusive QuickFit Virtual Scale, four USB 3.0 ports, and the same full set of tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustments.

CES 2013, Las Vegas, USA—7 January, 2013
ASUS Announces Transformer AiO PC with Detachable Tablet and Qube with Google TV Media Streamer
Windows 8 PC with integral Android tablet, home entertainment device with voice search, two premium monitors and pocket router all unveiled at CES 2013
CES 2013, Las Vegas, USA (7 January, 2013) — ASUS today announced the Transformer AiO at CES 2013, the world’s first all-in-one PC with Windows 8 and a detachable 18.4-inch display that doubles as a standalone Android tablet. ASUS also announced the Qube with Google TV media streamer that brings a wealth of online entertainment content to HDTVs, the PA249Q ProArt and VG248QE Fast Gaming monitors, and the WL-330NUL Pocket Router – the world’s smallest router that gives easy wireless connectivity to travelers.
ASUS Transformer AiO — the world’s first all-in-one PC with a detachable tablet
Transformer AiO is the world’s first All-in-One PC with a detachable display that doubles as a standalone tablet for three distinct modes of use. Transformer AiO is a fully featured desktop PC with Windows 8, and is powered by a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processor with NVIDIA® GT 730M graphics for outstanding multi-tasking and entertainment performance. The 18.4-inch Full HD IPS display delivers brilliant images with 178-degree wide viewing angles for easy enjoyment with friends and family, while ASUS SonicMaster audio technology ensures an immersive listening experience with music, movies and everything in between.
With its display detached from the desktop PC Station, Transformer AiO instantly becomes a king-size tablet with two different operating systems to suit different tablet needs. Wireless Remote Desktop technology maintains a high-speed wireless connection to the PC Station for complete remote control of Windows 8 using the multi-touch display. Alternatively, Transformer AiO seamlessly switches into a self-contained Android 4.1 tablet with an NVIDIA® Tegra® 3 quad-core processor at the touch of a button. The integral handle makes it easy to carry the tablet from room to room and a built-in stand keeps the display at the perfect angle for tabletop use.
Qube with Google TV media streamer with voice search and motion control
ASUS Qube with Google TV is a compact Android-based entertainment device that instantly upgrades HDTVs with a wealth of online content. Based on the latest Google TV platform, Qube with Google TV is the first Google TV media streamer with motion control and voice search, and features an exclusive ASUS-designed user interface with the unique ability to group downloaded apps for easier management and navigation. Google Play gives instant access to a wide selection of entertainment content, including movies, TV shows, apps and games, and Qube with Google TV also features picture-in-picture TV viewing and the sophisticated Chrome web browser. Motion sensing can be used with games and Qube with Google TV can also be controlled using the Mobile Remote app for Android smartphones and tablets (available from the Google Play Store). Qube with Google TV also includes 50GB of ASUS WebStorage as standard.
PA249Q ProArt and VG248QE Fast Gaming monitors for work and play
The ASUS PA249Q ProArt delivers uncompromising color precision for users who need a professional-grade monitor. The 24-inch PA249Q ProArt has a 1920 x 1200 resolution with 16:10 aspect ratio and features IPS display technology for 178-degree wide viewing angles. Pre-calibrated at the factory for the highest accuracy of any display in this category (∆E <5), the PA249Q ProArt provides six-axis color control and outstanding color space reproduction — 99% Adobe RGB, 103% NTSC and 100% sRGB.
ASUS QuickFit Virtual Scale displays images and documents in actual size on-screen for true “what you see is what you get” accuracy. A five-way navigation key gives easy access to display parameters, while full tilt, swivel, pivot, and height adjustment ensures a comfortable viewing position. The PA249Q also features four USB 3.0 ports for pass-though connectivity at speeds up to 10 times that of USB 2.0 with compatible devices.
The 24-inch ASUS VG248QE monitor is purpose-designed for high-performance gaming. Thanks to its 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms (GTG) response time, the VG248QE monitor natively supports higher in-game frame rates (FPS settings) than monitors with refresh rates of 120Hz or less to deliver more fluid on-screen motion. The VG248QE has a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution and an 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio for crisp, clear detail, even in dimly lit in-game environments. The ASUS VG248QE also supports NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ 2 technology and features HDMI, DisplayPort and dual-link DVI-D ports. User comfort is assured too, thanks to full tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment.
WL-330NUL Pocket Router – the world’s smallest Wi-Fi router
The ASUS WL-330NUL Pocket Router is the world’s smallest fully featured wireless router designed to make getting online via Wi-Fi as easy as possible when away from a home or office network. Barely larger than a USB flash drive and weighing just 25g, the WL-330NUL Pocket Router features a single Ethernet port for connection to a wired network and built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi for extending a wireless network.
Powered from a notebook USB port or by plugging directly into a mains socket, the WL-330NUL Pocket Router creates its own secure wireless hotspot for easy sharing of a wired or wireless connection with multiple wireless devices. The WL-330NUL Pocket Router can also be used as a USB Ethernet adapter for notebooks that lack a built-in Ethernet port, making it the perfect travelling companion for ultra-slim Ultrabooks™.
