ASUS M70, First NFC Desktop PC

Near-Field Communication chips are, for now, mostly used to help phones/tablets quickly recognize each other so that a Bluetooth connection may form easily. ASUS decided to extend that to PCs.

In this respect, it released the M70 Desktop PC, the first NFC-enabled desktop ever. It should allow owners to log on to the PC and launch applications via NFC, wirelessly back up photos and such from phones with a single tap of a key, and even detect and only back up files added since last sync. And since NFC wasn't about to sell the system on its own, ASUS also gave the M70 a built-in Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS), a Core i3/i5/i7 dual-core CPU (Haswell), NVIDIA Graphics (up to GTX 650), and a built-in Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) that activates when power fails. The UPS is there to ensure that sudden lapses in the power grid don't compromise ongoing copy/paste and backup processes. And if the power fails altogether, it will last for some minutes, allowing the tasks to finish and then pushing the HDD into hibernate mode.

Finally, an ASUS Wireless Charger tray is located at the top, for wireless recharging of phones. The rest of the specs are standard, save for the ASUS Universal Storage Module (USM), a hot-swap drive bay twice as fast as USB 3.9. I'll be keeping an eye out for the price of this thing.
