Zotac rolls out frugal, special edition ZBOX mini PC

Written by Fudzilla staff



Ivy Bridge silicon, 4GB RAM and SSD on the cheap

Zotac has added yet another product to its ever growing line of ZBOX mini PCs, but the ZBOX ID 18 Plus Special Edition is not exactly new.

The ID18 has been around for a while and for months it has been one of the cheapest barebones in Europe. The ID18 barebone is based on the Intel Celeron 1002U, an Ivy Bridge dual-core clocked at 1.5GHz, so it is no slouch and it can easily wipe the floor with Atoms and Bobcat-based AMD APUs.

The ZBOX ID 18 Plus Special Edition is a complete system, almost. It retains the same Celeron processor, but it’s backed by 4GB of RAM and a 64GB SSD. It features two USB 3.0 ports, eSATA, 6-in-1 card reader and it sports DVI and HDMI video outputs. The only thing it really lacks is WiFi. There are no radios on board, so you’ll have to invest in a WiFi dongle (and a Bluetooth dongle if you need one).

Still, the asking price is €190 and even with a cheap WiFi dongle it should cost around €200, which is not too shabby for a nettop based on a relatively powerful chip backed by speedy solid state storage.
