ZBOX Sphere OI520 Series will start at $399

ZOTAC is known mainly for its pint-sized mini-PCs and today it’s spicing things up a bit with the introduction of its new ZBOX Sphere OI520 series which takes on — as its name implies — a spherical design.
ZOTAC is hoping to score points with enthusiasts that want to think… outside the box and have something a bit swankier to show off on their entertainment shelf or desk.
Underneath the “orb form factor” lies a 1.6GHz Intel Core i5 4200U processor and Intel HD Graphics 4400 integrated graphics processor. The ZBOX Sphere OI520 supports a single 2.5” SSD or HDD, an additional mSATA SSD, and incorporates two S0-DIMM slots. Other features include 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0. External connections include HDMI, DisplayPort, GbE, three USB 2.0 ports, and four USB 3.0 ports.
The standard ZBOX Sphere OI520 is priced at $399. The ZBOX Sphere OI520 Plus comes standard with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB HDD, and is priced at $499.

Perhaps ZBOX Sphere OI520 would make a fitting companion for LaCie’s 1TB Sphère external USB 3.0 HDD.

Those two S0-DIMM slots

Do you get to the two S0-DIMM slots by unscrewing the top? Because that would be cool.

What you didn't tell us is the diameter of the sphere. Inquiring minds want to know!

Yes, you unscrew the top. I'll add in some more pics for you. Unfortunately, I don't have any information on dimensions, but I'll see what I can get from ZOTAC.

Looks to be 5.25"-5.3" (13.34-13.46cm)
