Great workstation PC


Not every one I have purchase is this exact model as sometimes I get them with no HDD or RAM

I have purchased around 40-50 of these (not all from NewEgg) and I install them for my clients. I load them up with Win7 Pro x64 and 4gb RAM and they are great workstations for them. I have yet to have one fail in over a year. Low power consumption,...

Added 4 Gigs of Crutial DDR3 10600 memory and a 306 Gig 7200 hard drive along with Windows home 7 premium and it took off. Small and powerful. Love it. Build it yourself and save on the bloatware.

Once a Loyal Customer


I bought this, assuming that the computer was ready to go-- with an Intel Atom processor, hard drive, RAM, etc. Guess what? This product us just an empty piece of plastic!!! You have to buy additional parts for the thing to work! Worse still, I can't...

Please pay attention to the product description. This is just the shell of a mini-tower. Even though the description states, "delivers phenomenal performance and compatibility for a full Microsoft Windows 7 experience" the product does not have Windows...

Small unit with low power usage. Fully integrated, just needs keyboard/mouse/screen externally. Lots of connectivity: USB, Wifi, Ethernet, audio. Can handle Linux, Windows (7/8) and Android X86 in multi-boot environment. You decide on how much...

No after sales support from Zotac - no spares available if GPU/CPU fan fails. On my Zotac Mag it lasted 2 years.
