Zotac Zbox BI323

 

Performance isn't always the most important characteristic to consider when buying a desktop PC—sometimes, price or portability may matter more. If this is the case with you, whether because you don't have a ton of money to spend but want to get a...

Compact. Inexpensive to buy and customize. Lots of USB ports

So-so performance. Does not include operating system

For easily building a tiny, no-frills PC, the Zotac Zbox Bi323 offers a good blend of features, price, and performance.

Zotac Zbox EN1060 review: Better than console gaming in a tiny package

 

But don't expect the same performance as a full-size Nvidia GTX 1060.

Like any smaller system, buying the EN1060 means making a trade-off between size and longevity. One of the best things about PC gaming is how easy it is to keep a system relevant, just by dropping in a new graphics card. Heck, until the release of GTX...

Zotac ZBOX pico pocket-sized desktop PC review

 

Zotac has been offering a line of tiny desktop computers for a few years, but the company's new is the smallest yet. It's also one of the first to come not only with memory and storage, but also with an operating system pre-installed. It's a fully...

Overall I’m pretty impressed with what Zotac has managed to achieve with this little PC… although it may just be the first of many tiny Windows PCs. A Chinese manufacturer has already managed to pack a Windows computer with an Intel Atom processor

Testing new and popular stuff is always a bit more fun - especially when you're dealing with market trends that happen only once every now and then. The same thing happened with laptops - at one point, they overtook desktops on the overall "interest...

If you take a look at scores, it's clear - this represents quite a step forward when compared to first generation of Ion platform, in every single test. Video performance is better as well, and consumes even less HW power then before (down 30%). Quite...

Zotac ZBOX Magnus EN1070 Gaming Mini PC Review - FunkyKit

 

Thanks to ZOTAC, we'll be taking a look at the Zotac ZBOX Magnus EN1070 Gaming Mini PC. This mini PC is powered by an Intel Core i5-6400T running at 2.2GHz, and comes with an amazing array of features including an onboard GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB of...

Great graphics and gaming performance ; Intel 6th Gen (Skylake) processor ; USB 3.1 (Type-A/Type-C) ; Dual Gigabit LAN

Can run extremely hot ; A bit pricey

“Push the limit” is one of Zotac’s moto, and it certainly has with the the ZBOX Magnus EN1070. It’s currently the most powerful mini PC on the market today that supports VR! Not only does it feature an onboard GeForce GTX 1070 with 8GB GDDR5 ram, but...

Zotac Zbox ID89 Plus Review

 

Zotac crams an Ivy Bridge CPU into its latest mini-PC. Is it the perfect media companion?

The Ivy Bridge CPU at the heart of the ID89 Plus is clearly its strongest selling point, as it means Zotac is able to cram lots of computational power into a tiny space. The same CPU can be found powering all-in-one systems that cost upwards of £800,...

Consumer review by: Chad S. (newegg.com)

Decent Mini-PC, to a fault.

 

This little PC was great for a while, until the entire serial bus stopped working. I use this little system as a source for designing models, and transferring the raw data to my laser, to be cut. The problem now is, since the entire serial bus has...

Small, compact, and clamps directly to a display if one desires. Quiet, yet powerful enough to run adobe illustrator, coreldraw and various cad software with ease. Claims to support 3820x2160 @ 60hz.

No other input options than USB. (The entire bus failed in six months.) Requires an 18/19v brick type power supply, rather than an internal solution. Though that's just a size limitation. There again, small size. May not be suitable for everyone.
