The Zotac ZBOX PI320 pico is a desktop PC with the power of a cheap Windows tablet. That might not sound too impressive… until you realize that it’s a full-fledged Windows computer that’s small enough to hold in one hand (or slide into a pocket) and which also has 3 USB ports, HDMI and Ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth, and Windows 8.1 software.
You can use it as a low-power desktop, a tiny media center machine, a home media server, or any number of other applications.
Zotac introduced it’s tiniest desktop in August, and now it’s available for purchase for about $200.
Update: You can find more information about the ZBOX PI320 pico in our full review.
I’ve been testing the ZBOX pico for a little while, and I’m pretty impressed with what you get for the price. I’ll have a full review soon, but the short version is that it handles HD media playback with ease and it’s capable of basic tasks like web browsing and document editing. Just don’t expect miracles from a cheap, fanless, palm-sized desktop.
The ZBOX PI320 pico features an Intel Atom Z3735F quad-core Bay Trail processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and Windows 8.1 with Bing software. You can run Ubuntu or other Linux distributions on it, but right now you need to load a 64-bit operating system with a 32-bit bootloader and you may have to use a USB WiFi adapter since the built-in WiFi isn’t supported out of the box.
thanks for letting us know it’s now available, Rob Edgar!
