The Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11 is an eco-friendly, small-form-factor nettop (mini-PC) released in early 2010. It features an Intel Atom D510 (1.66GHz) processor and, even more importantly, an Nvidia Ion graphics processor with support for DirectX 10.1 with Shader Model 4.1. This allows users to playback high-definition video formats like AVC, VC-1 and Blu-ray discs. Included also is integrated Gigabit and WiFi connectivity for streaming HD Internet video, including Adobe Flash 10.1 content. Plus it supports dual-link DVI and/or HDMI v1.3a connections to monitors and televisions, as well as 7.1-channel digital surround sound. A barebones edition without an HDD, memory, or an OS retails for $239.99. There is space for only a single 2.5” drive and a single DDR2 DODIMM memory piece, but greater expansion can be achieved via USB, eSATA, and a memory card reader.
