We like our desktops big, bad, and full of attitude. This is Maximum PC after all, and you won't catch any of us wielding our full towers in our palms. That's a disaster waiting happen. But not all PCs are supposed to big and burly. Zotac understands as well as anyone that the nettop is one category in which size matters, and not in the way that's befitting of the adult film industry. Underscoring this point is Zotac's new Zbox nano AD10 series, palm size mini-PCs that purportedly pack a punch.
"The Zotac Zbox nano AD10 series is our smallest mini-PC," said Carsten Berger , marketing director, Zotac International. "Despite the miniature size, the Zbox nano AD10 series has nearly all the same features as our award-winning Zbox and Zbox Blu-ray series, and even introduces a couple new features."
One of those new features is a bundled Windows Media Center compatible remote control to go along with the integrated dual-infrared receiver, so you're free to hide the nettop out of sight, like in a home theater cabinet or attached to the back of your TV set with the device's new VESA 75/100 mount.
The Zbox nano AD10 is built around AMD's E-350 APU platform with a 1.6GHz dual-core processor and Radeon HD 6310 graphics. It has a single SODIMM slot and supports a single 2.5-inch SATA HDD/SDD. Other features include a pair of USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs, Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD audio, GbE LAN, 802.11n Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 3.0. The Zbox nano AD10 Plus comes configured with 2GB of DDR3 memory and 320GB hard drive spinning at 5400RPM.
