Form factors for PCs are getting smaller and smaller, but Zotac’s new Zbox PI320 Pico pushes the form factor even further. Pico is generally a term that is associated with a certain size of a PC, like the Zbox PI 320, and the truth is that this is one of the smallest ‘PC’ formfactors you can technically build a PC into, even though this thing is bordering on really being a nano PC. It also has the specs behind it to still technically be considered a PC.
Coming in at 4.54 x 2.6 x 0.75 inches, Zotac’s new Zbox is silent and small enough to fit in one’s pocket. Inside, it has an Atom Z3735F processor clocked at either 1.33 GHz or 1.83 GHz, 2 GB of DDR3L memory and 32 GB of Flash-based internal storage. For connectivity, it includes two USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, Bluetooth 4.0, MicroSD, and both Ethernet as well as 802.11 b.g.n Wi-Fi.
“Zotac is a major innovator when it comes to miniaturizing the traditional PC. We began our push towards smaller and smaller mini-PCs with the Zbox nano form factor and followed up with the Zbox nano XS,” said Tony Wong, CEO, Zotac International, in a statement. “Now with the all-new Zbox PI320 pico, we have created our smallest mini-PC that can fit in your pocket.”
The computer also ships with Windows 8.1 with Bing.
Zotac expects the device to launch next month at a price point of $199.
