Zotac´s ZBOX Nano systems have been available for a while now. The extremely compact (the systems fit in the palm of your hand) but versatile systems are often used as media centers. The manufacturer has just introduced a new model, which is as big as its predecessor but just a bit more powerful.
The new model is equipped with AMD's E2-1800 APU, which is a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor with integrated Radeon HD 7340 graphics chip. 2 GB of DDR3 memory is present in a single-channel configuration (there's only one slot available), as well as a 320 GB hard disk of the 5400 RPM type. Video outputs include HDMI and DisplayPort. Two USB 3.0 connectors are available, as well as four USB 2.0 ports, two on the front and the other two on the rear of the ZBOX. Compared to its predecessor, the new model has a greater power output, which allows it to be used for charging smartphones and tablets as well. Lastly, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 are part of the feature set.
Like with its predecessor, Zotac bundles a media center remote and IR receiver with its latest addition. Mounting materials for VESA75/100 are also enclosed. It's still unclear what the new model will cost and when it will be available.
