Asustek Computer has announced VivoMouse wireless touchpad mouse, the world’s first wireless mouse with an integrated multi-touch touchpad for full desktop and handheld control. The mouse is specifically designed for VivoPC, a stylish and compact desktop PC that delivers high quality sound with exclusive SonicMaster audio and high-performance wireless networking thanks to 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

AsusVivoMouse is an entirely new kind of pointing device, thanks to its innovative combination of traditional desktop input and a wireless handheld remote for more casual PC control. VivoMouse can be used as a standard optical mouse that fits comfortably in the hand, but its top surface also incorporates a large circular touchpad with full support for Windows 8 multi-touch gestures.

The wide, flat design means VivoMouse can be used interchangeably as a mouse and desktop touchpad, making it ideal for Microsoft Windows 8 PCs that lack a multi-touch display. However, its wireless PC connection also makes VivoMouse ideal for one-handed control away from the desktop, so it is also a perfect peripheral for a living room PC.

VivoPC is a compact PC, just 56mm tall and with a footprint smaller than a sheet of A4 paper, VivoPC slips easily into the smallest of spaces, and has a stylish spun metal finish to complement both home offices and living rooms. VivoPC features Asus SonicMaster audio technology for high sound quality with external speakers and high-performance 802.11ac Wi-Fi for smooth HD video streaming and seamless web browsing.

VivoPC is also well-equipped when it comes to expandability. A sliding case cover gives quick access to the two internal memory slots and the drive bay can accommodate a 3.5” or 2.5” Serial ATA-6Gb/s hard drive. Unfortunately, Asus did not disclose any specifications of the system, but keeping in mind it supports Windows 8, it should be powered by the latest highly-integrated chips from Intel or AMD.

Good luck using a 7200 spin 3.5" HDD into one of these, it would not last very long unless used with a 5300rpm drive and even then 2.5" form factor would be preferable
