I hope you didn't think it was just the standard sized ZBOXes that would be updated at Computex. ZOTAC actually brought even more to the party this year including some silent but deadly mini-PC models to add to the series. The new ZBOX C-Series has a lot of nice goodies beyond all the extras we are going to need.
The complete quartet for the C-Series include the ZBOX CI540, CI520, CI320, and the AMD based CA320. All feature completely silent operations thanks to the honeycomb ventilated case and passive processor cooling solution. You will also find all sporting 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, up to seven USB ports (at least two being USB 3.0), and HD digital outputs. You can pick which processor/VGA suits your fancy with dual and quad-core options available.
As we have come to expect from ZOTAC, there is a Plus model of each of the ZBOX quartet that comes with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a 64 GB SSD. This could be the perfect answer to converting a TV or monitor into an AiO family workstation. It could also be the perfect on-the-go PC for those hotel TVs by just adding a wireless mouse/keyboard set. It is time to play with silence.
