ZOTAC ZBOX AD06 Plus

 

The Zotac ZBOX AD06 Plus is clearly aimed to take the budget-minded user by storm. Utilizing the brand's signature chassis, the system works well in its configuration while still giving the customer the ability to grab the non-Plus variant for an...

Zotac ZBOX-AD06-BE

 

Small, quiet and works really well with Linux. Comes with a mini stand, but it's the vesa mount that can screw onto the back of a monitor or TV that makes this box excellent when space is at a premium.
