Zotac's been making miniature sized PCs since before they became vogue, and with technology advancing at a rapid clip, the company's latest boxes pack an impressive amount of power. That includes the latest Zbox Nano systems -- ID68 and ID69 -- which feature 4th Generation Intel Core processors (Haswell). These aren't gaming systems or Steam Machine candidates, but for daily computing chores, they look like serviceable solutions.
Looking for a small PC? It doesn't get too much smaller that Zotac's Zbox Nano line of mini PCs, which you can tuck neatly out of sight behind your monitor for a home brewed all-in-one experience. These aren't typically powerhouse systems, though for the first time, you can get quad-core processing from a Zbox Nano machine. The new Zbox Nano AQ01 features an AMD A4-5000 APU clocked at 1.5GHz with Radeon HD 8330 graphics.
Small form factor systems are vogue, and that's just fine by Zotac, which has been cashing in on the craze for palm-sized systems with its Zbox Nano line. These aren't wimpy little systems, either, especially now that some of them have been upgraded with Ivy Bridge processors from Intel. These include Intel's Core i3 3227U, Core i5 3337U, and Core i7 3537U processors.
Zotac specializes in pint sized PCs and is best known for its Zbox Nano line of small form factor (SFF) systems. Thanks to the rapid march of technology, these types of machines, when properly configured, can pack a performance punch that defy their compact form, and that's exactly what Zotac hopes to achieve by upgrading its Zbox Nano line with an AMD E2-1800 accelerated processing unit (APU).
