Zotac ZBOX ID80 Plus Mini-PC

HiTechLegion has a look at the Zotac ZBOX ID80 Plus Mini-PC.  This unit packs in an Intel Atom D2700 and a NVIDIA 520M GPU.  Also combined in the bundle is 2GB DDR3-1066, 320GB 5400rpm drive, HDMI, USB2.0 and more.  


Noise is generally a concern when it comes to HTPCs but, thankfully, the Zotac ZBOX ID80 was whisper quiet, even under heavy loads. In fact, I couldn't hear anything unless I stopped and gave it a few seconds of silence and listened very closely. The temperatures are well-within optimal for a small space and there are generous ventilation holes on both sides and bottom to allow the internal components to breathe.
