Fourth generation Intel processing
Intel's Core i5 processor and 6GB of RAM combine to make your machine a multitasking machine, primed for everything from web browsing and document creation to editing your home photos and videos. Intel's fourth generation of processors provide excellent performance, with the i5 featuring a 'boost' mode which will provide extra power when under increased pressure. It will deliver smooth visuals and increased security to help protect your data.
No shortage of connections
With six USB 2.0 and two ultrafast USB 3.0 ports, you won't be short of methods for connecting peripherals like mice, keyboards, external drives and web cams. The M32AD also includes both an HDMI port and a VGA port, so you can connect this machine to external monitors for either HD or SD visual output.
Built to last
The M32AD has undergone stringent tests to ensure that it meets Asus' high standards. Vibration and drop tests help to ensure that the components continue to perform despite the occasional bump, while temperature, humidity, line voltage and frequency tests ensure that it can still operate within reasonable temperatures (between -40�C and 60�C) or with an unstable power supply. It also undergoes noise testing to ensure that noise levels are within a specified range.
Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system provides a new, intuitive way to access your programs.

Windows 8 can also run legacy apps- most programs from older versions of Windows.
