Zotac launched its first small form-factor desktop computers featuring Intel Haswell processors a few months ago. Now the company has a few new models, featuring more powerful chips with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 5200.
The company is showing off the Zotac ZBOX EI730 and EI750 at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Shows.
The ZBOX EI730 features a 2.7 GHz Core i5-4570R quad-core processor, 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, 4 USB 3.0 ports and room for a 2.5 inch drive and/or an mSATA solid state drive.
There’s also a Gigabit Ethernet jack, a 4-in-1 card reader, 2 DisplayPorts and a DVI port. The system has two memory slots and supports up to 16GB of RAM.
Zotac will offer a Plus model that comes with 8GB of RAM and 1TB of storage, but the basic version will ship as a barebones system. Neither model features an operating system. You’ll have to install that yourself.
The ZBOX EI750 is basically the same device, but with a 3.2 Ghz Core i7-4770R processor.
According to this site (https://www.cdrinfo.com/Sections/News/Details.aspx?NewsId=39156), the EI730 will be priced at $399 and the EI750 will be priced at $499. Both are expected to be released in the third quarter of 2014. No word on the price of the Plus models.
(Brad, your last sentence should reference the EI750, not the EI730. Thanks.)
Sorry, the link should be:
What’s the price? Any info of matte finishes? Shiny plastic is very ugly. How loud do these get under some loads?
If these come in glossy boxes and are loud then pass.
Yeah. The gloss black has to go! Every single electronic device i’ve owned that has that finish gets scratched mysteriously. You can make the surface matte if you know what you’re doing. I’ve done it and it looks great.
First, mask off everything that you don’t want dulled using green masking tape (blue and regular leave residue). Then take a GRAY scotch-brite pad and buff the surface in small circles. a white residue will form which should be frequently removed using a damp towel. Once it’s been evenly dulled, use a WHITE scotch-brite pad and buff the finish to bring a tiny bit of shine back.
If done right you’re results will look like this… https://img.gawkerassets.com/img/18ixsito3kj2ujpg/original.jpg
Those are some nice specs. Wondering about the price
