Zotac Zbox PI320 is a $199 mini PC with Windows 8.1, features Intel Bay Trail Processor
Back in August, Zotac, an OEM popular for manufacturing small-sized PCs, announced a smartphone-sized Zotac PI320 Pico mini-PC. Turns out, it’s now available for sale and is small enough to fit inside your pocket, and offer a decent set of specifications at an extremely catchy price tag.
Yes, the mini-PC (as shown above) is as small as a smartphone, and can handle most of the tasks pretty well, even light gaming. The Zotac PI320 comes with a $199 price tag, and measures 4.5 x 2.6 x 0.5 in. The mini PC features a quad-core Intel Atom Z3735 Bay Trail processor clocked at 1.33GHz, which can reach speeds of up to 1.86GHz, and Intel HD Graphics.
Zotac PI320 comes with 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage, three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, WiFi, Ethernet, Bluetooth, a headphone jack, 3-in-1 card reader and a microSD card slot in case you want more storage. On the software front, it comes pre-installed with Windows 8.1 with Bing so you just have to unbox it, and start using it.
Some of you may consider it to be a deal-breaker since it comes with just 32GB of internal storage, which may get filled in minutes with a few apps, but you can always connect an external hard drive for that matter, or use a microSD card.
To be honest, what else do you need in a $199 mini PC? It’s as cheap as most of the Android tablets out there, and an excellent price if you want to get a full Windows 8.1 experience. The creators even showed that it can
run stream a handful of games as well, including most of the ones which are available on steam. Take a look at the video below, and share your thoughts.
