During our meeting with ZOTAC, we were presented with their ZBOX range, a very nice range indeed. Where they offer a comprehensive range, they have now categorised each ZBOX into 6 categories: Epic Gaming (E), Sphere (O), Pico (P), Passive Cooling (C), Multimedia (M) and Basic (B). These categories have pretty much every typical home user covered. A Very simple and small alternative to buying a mass produced tower computer from a high street retailer.
We loved seeing the vast range and diversity from ZOTAC today with all their products. I personally really liked the PICO box, I could use this to present my ideas in meetings, without having to rely on a comparatively bulky laptop and projector combination.
I look forward to seeing additional Mini PC’s added to the range from ZOTAC, possibly a detachable screen added to the top of the PICO box for “on the move” use. Any news or events, we will keep you updated.
During CES 2015, Zotac will be presenting their expanded ZBOX pico lineup, new E-series gaming, new passive C-series and quad display ready ZBOX mini-PCs. Looks like Zotac has a new miniPC lined up for every occasion.
“We launched major new ZBOX mini-PCs in 2014 with the passive C-series nano, gaming capable E-series and the pocketable pico series. This year we’re refining the successful formula to add more features and performance while maintaining the award-winning form factors,” says Tony Wong, CEO, ZOTAC International.
The ZBOX CI321 nano is the latest passive cooled nano-PC that comes with a dual-core Intel processor, dual Gigabit LAN, AC WiFi, and dual-channel memory support. The next-generation ZBOX E-series gaming mini-PC will add G-SYNC support, multiple display support for surround view, and 4K @ 60Hz all in one small box. The second generation of Zotac’s pico series of pocket PCs will be showcased as well, including dual display support, Gigabit LAN and USB 3.0.
There will also be a prototype ZOTAC ZBOX mini-PC on display, capable of driving four displays at once and a preview on a ZBOX mini-PC capable of accommodating up to two 2.5-inch SATA and a pair of custom modified ZBOX Sphere OI520s.

The new Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 Pro is finally here and while previous models have been no stranger to cool features, their latest one certainly stands out from the crowd. Equipped with a powerful 8 watt sound system and mini subwoofer for multimedia playback, the tablet also features a built-in pico projector, allowing the Yoga Tablet 2 Pro to throw a 16:9 50-inch image on to any surface.
The projector mode will take the battery life down to just three hours, but for watching some YouTube videos, most movies, or just showing a presentation, it’s more than enough; of course you could always just keep the power adaptor to hand and run it for as long as you like.
The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro comes equipped with a stunning 13-inch QHD panel, 8MP rear camera, LTE, expandable memory, 15 hours battery life and of course the integrated Yoga stand.
The Yoga Tablet 2 Pro will be available this month from most major retailers and the 32GB model will set you back $499.99.
