ASUS M51-AC Bundled tools and utilities

Desktops have long been the primary computing device for most people through the years and even though a lot of us spend most of our time using our smartphones, nothing can replace the comfort of using a good desktop PC. Come what may but desktop PC’s will be used by millions of people for many years to come. In light of this fact, ASUS has a huge profile of computing products at its disposal and the M51-AC which is their new pre-built desktop tries to add more features to the traditional PC. The M51-AC has been used by us for over a month now and we’ve covered pretty much everything when it comes to this desktop’s specifications, features and performance. It doesn’t end here as features and performance are not the only factors involved in making a desktop complete because manufacturers tend to add a few of their own software and utilities to their products and take it one extra mile.

Desktops have come a long way since their inception, especially when you consider the mainstream market. People now think of buying a pre-made one stop computing device without the hassle of going through the lengthy process of selecting individual stuff. The ASUS M51-AC fits their requirements as it is one of the most feature rich pre-built desktops we’ve seen to date. We’ve previously looked at the unboxing and first look of the desktop along with its in-depth features and specifications. We still have a lot to say about this desktop since we haven’t really spoken about its performance. You can’t really say that you’ve used a particular device unless you’ve put the device through its paces by running stress tests on it.

When it comes to desktops, there are varied demands about what a consumer wants with his system. Ideally, the market can be divided into pre-built desktops and assembled desktops. The ASUS M51-AC belongs to the pre-built desktop category, with the desktop coming completely built from ASUS along with its accessories and doesn’t require the user to have any knowledge about assembling the system in order to use it. The user only has to unbox the system, connect a few standard cables like power, display, input/output etc, and the system can be powered on and directly used. This is a win-win situation for consumers who don’t want the hassle of choosing individual parts and assembling their desktops as it makes it easy for them to just order a branded pre-built desktop and start using it.

As a geek, especially one who covers tech for a living, it’s hard to reconcile oneself with the fact that people still buy desktop PCs off the shelf. Building your own PC seems so frivolous and cost-effective that an off-the-shelf PC seems utterly pointless. That said, one needs to look at these off-the-shelf PCs from the perspective of the average person, a person who is not so much of a geek, a person who’s not so comfortable with PC components and just wants a PC that works. That person could easily be your mom, your sister, an uncle, or even a kid who’s just started getting his hands dirty.
