Expert review by : Natalie Shoemaker (

Asus Essentio CM1740-04


The Asus Essentio CM1740-04 is a solid entry-level desktop, and its AMD Llano APU has an edge over Intel's integrated graphics on the gaming grid.

Big 1TB hard drive. USB 3.0 ports on board. AMD Llano APU provides DirectX 11 and graphics support for games. Plenty of expansion room. Keyboard and mouse included. No bloatware.

No Wi-Fi. Video encoding and Photoshop multimedia results were slower than Intel competition.

Asus Essentio CM1740-UK003O


Easy to set up, nice big screen & seems pretty fast so far. Surprised when it arrived with a wireless mouse & keyboard that wasn't mentioned.

Should mention it comes with a wirless keyboard & mouse.
