Zotac is updating its ZBOX nano line of mini-desktops with a new model sporting an AMD A8-5545M quad-core processor and Radeon HD 8510G graphics.
The ZBOX nano AQ02 not exactly a premium gaming machine, but it should offer enough power for most basic computing tasks including home theater PC duties. It’d also make a decent option for a digital signage or kiosk system.
Zotac will offer a barebones version and a ZBOX nano AQ02 Plus model that comes with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. Neither model comes with an operating system, so you’ll have to supply your own.
The little computer has a 2.5 inch drive bay, support for up to 8GB of DDR3-1600 memory, DisplayPort and HDMI, a SATA connector and eSATA port, Gigiabit Ethernet, and built-in 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0.
It has 4 USB 3.0 ports on the back and 2 USB 2.0 ports on the front, and the system has a 7-in-1 flash card reader.
Zotac describes it as a machine that’s good for HD video playback and “light gaming tasks.”
