Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus


The Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus desktop has the chops to go beyond its intended media consumption purposes, thanks to its Intel "Ivy Bridge" processor, generous port selection, and support for dual-display output. These help overshadow some of its...

Slightly higher power consumption

With the ZBOX ID83, ZOTAC have certainly upped their game in the mini-PC market. The improved Intel processor makes the ID83 a great and compact desktop replacement for most office or home tasks, and even the odd videogame or basic Photoshop. If you’ve...
