It is available in our country, the Mini PC Zotac Zbox PI320, small and totally silent, based on Intel SoC Bay Trail 2.2 watts and run Windows 8.1 with Bing. Costa 199 € and is immediately in the stock SKU code ZBOX-PI320-W3. This is the first time you see it in Italy.
Zotac Mini PC produces excellent for a lifetime, but this Zbox PI320 is the most compact of its catalog. On a frame 12 x 6.5 x 1.9 cm can contain a complete computer based on Atom CPU Z3735F and Windows 8.1. The data-sheet is basic, but the performance of Intel still allow you to manage web, multimedia and productivity at home so discreet. To put it another way: it can be a home pc or less demanding positions in an office – if you do not have too many claims.
Zbox Pico PI320 has 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal eMMC (his real limit, because the GB available for programs and files are reduced to 10) and a set of ports including HDMI, 3 USB 2.0, Ethernet and microSDXC reader. It has WiFi and Bluetooth 4.0, external power supply on and dedicated headphone output jack. It is the hardware of a tablet Windows (more or less) with additional tab for the expansion of connectivity, without screen and without battery.
However it is not the first to propose this format (see Liva ECS) and will not be the only view of the things to come (including Chinese, much more compact). A 199 euro is not even the cheapest (with the same price you can not assemble a more powerful CI320 HDD and RAM), but it is a more portable than NUC and the like, really in your pocket if it were to serve.
