The Computex d&i awards are hosted by Computex Taipei and organized by the world-renowned design institute iF International Forum Design. The winning entries are selected by an international expert panel, with evaluation criteria including degree of innovation, design quality, craftsmanship, choice of materials, environmental friendliness, functionality, utility value, safety, ergonomics, universal design, product identity, and product branding.
Also a winner of the Red Dot 2016 Product Design Award, the Revo Build is a mini PC that is easily customized with blocks that provide different functions such as extra storage, speakers and microphones, or even wireless charging. The blocks connect precisely via magnetic pogo pins that make assembling a computer as easy as playing with toy blocks. The blocks can also work independently or with other PCs. The Revo Build mini PC is packaged in a tiny one liter chassis with a 125 x 125 mm footprint that takes up minimal space and can be placed almost anywhere.
Built for home or schools in mind, the Aspire One 11 features a spill-resistant keyboard with water drainage design that protects against accidental spills. While on the move, the Aspire One 11 can stay unplugged for a full workday with 10 hours of battery life. The Aspire One 11 runs Windows 10, and features 802.11ac wireless with 2×2 MIMO, enabling blazing fast network connections with up to three times faster wireless connectivity compared to 802.11n. A Precision Touchpad supports Windows 10 gestures and provides a smooth and responsive experience.
