ASUS Announces Zen AiO 27 (Z272)

ASUS has announced Zen AiO 27 (Z272), an elegant and sophisticated all-in-one PC designed to deliver the ultimate all-in-one PC computing experience.

Designed for content creators and graphics professionals, Zen AiO 27 has a new design that houses all the system components in the base, rather than behind the display: this approach improves cooling, allows easier upgrades and enables a slimmer display housing. The powerful specification includes an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 GPU, as well as dual-storage options with both a HDD and an PCIe SSD. The base can be easily opened to provide access to the storage and memory modules for hassle-free upgrades. Zen AiO 27 also features Qi wireless charging built into its base to fast charge mobile devices.

Zen AiO 27 features a 27-inch 4K UHD NanoEdge PANTONE Validated display with a 100% sRGB colour gamut and a Delta-E colour accuracy of less than 3.0 for incredibly detailed and lifelike visuals; while a Harman Kardon-certified audio system features powerful 16W speakers provides clear, full-range sound.

New design features

Zen AiO 27 features built-in 7.5W Qi wireless charging in its base, allowing users to fast-charge a Qi-compatible mobile device by simply placing it on the base. In another new design feature, ASUS engineers have incorporated the internal components into an ergonomically-designed stand and base. The stand features tilt, swivel, and height adjustment to ensure the perfect viewing position, every time; while the base provides improved cooling for its high-performance components and can be easily opened to provide access to the storage and memory modules for hassle-free upgrades.

Ultimate performance

Users can expect desktop-levels of performance courtesy of an 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor; and with up to 32GB memory, Zen AiO 27 makes multitasking effortless. Gaming-grade NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics makes light work of photo and video editing, and even 3D graphics rendering

A dual-storage configuration with up to a 2TB HDD and a 1TB PCIe®SSD ensure there’s ample storage for large photo and movie files, and editing programs run smoothly. HDD-only models feature support for up to 16GB Intel Optanememory to launch apps faster and improve multitasking performance.

Visuals that pop

Zen AiO 27 is the ideal tool for graphics professionals thanks to its 27-inch 4K UHD NanoEdge display with a 100% sRGB colour gamut. It delivers pin-sharp detail and bright, vivid colours for more lifelike images. In addition, the display is PANTONE validated and has a Delta-E value of less than 3.0, providing outstanding colour accuracy for exceptional colours.

Harman Kardon-certified audio

Zen AiO 27 delivers fully immersive sound certified by audio specialists Harman Kardon. A high-quality 300cc, 16W quad-speaker system with an advanced bass-reflex design — typically found in high-end speaker systems — delivers smooth, power bass and clear, full-range sound that has to be heard to be believed.

Extensive connectivity options for unmatched versatility

Zen AiO 27 features a full complement of I/O ports including Thunderbolt3 for versatile, ultrafast connections. It can be used to charge devices, and can support two external 4K UHD displays or an external graphic card. There’s a total of three USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A ports on the rear of the base, with a USB 2.0 port and audio combo jack conveniently situated on the right side of the base, within easy reach. HDMI output lets users connect to a big-screen TV or external monitor for supersized entertainment; while HDMI input allows Zen AiO 27 to be used as an external display.

Your face is your password

The advanced infrared (IR) camera on Zen AiO 27 ensures quick, secure and convenient hands-free face login with Windows Hello.There’s no need to remember and type in complicated passwords, and certainly no need to worry about them being stolen. A quick scan is all it takes to log in.

Use your voice to control your day

Alexa is a cloud-based voice service that helps with tasks, entertainment, general information, and more. Using Alexa is as simple as asking a question. Just ask to play music, read the news, control smart home devices and functions, tell a joke, and more — Alexa will respond instantly.


ASUS Zen AiO 27 (Z272) will be available in September in Canada. Please contact your local ASUS representative for further information.

  1. One of the reason I purchased this unit was the ability to upgrade the memory and storage devices as advertised by Asus. However, Asus provides no instructions on how to remove the base cover. After contacting Asus for instructions, I got the following reply:

    “I understand that you would like a guide to open your unit and have a few components updated. Regrettably we do not have a guide to provide you with to have this done and we do not assist with upgrades. we suggest you seek assistance from a certified technician of your choice to assist you with the process if you are not sure on how to have this done. If any damages are incurred in the process Asus would not be liable.”

    Hopefully someone will post a video or instructions in the future on how to remove the base cover, if the need should arise to upgrade the internal memory and storage devices down the road.
