PLUS models add 4GB of DDR3 memory and a 64GB SSD

Computex 2014 is in full swing, and PC manufacturers are airing all of their latest gear aimed at consumers. ZOTAC is no exception and today is launching four new ZBOX C-series nano mini-PCs.
 
The machines all share the same “zero-noise” chassis, but differ mainly in processor selection. Those who want the ultimate in power efficiency can choose from both an AMD and Intel offering. The ZBOX CA320 comes equipped with an AMD A6-1450 APU (1GHz, quad-core) with a Radeon HD 8250 graphics core. If you prefer Intel, the ZBOX CI320 provides a Celeron N2930 processor (1.83GHz, quad-core) and Intel HD graphics.

 
For those that require a little more horsepower under the hood, there’s the ZBOX CI520 that packs in an Intel Core i3 4020Y processor (1.5GHz, dual-core) and Intel HD Graphics 4200.
 
The range-topping model is the ZBOX CI540 that features a Core i5 4210Y processor (1.5GHz, dual-core) and Intel HD Graphics 4200.

 
All models feature a plethora of USB ports (four USB 3.0, two USB 2.0), GbE, HDMI, and DisplayPort connections along with 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity. In addition, all four new ZBOX models will be available in “PLUS” configurations which come preinstalled with 4GB of memory and a 64GB SSD.
 
The CA320, CI320, CI530, and CI540 are priced at $179/289, $149/259, $309/$409, and $369/$479 respectively (standard model/PLUS model). All will be available by August of this year.

you know what the most annoying question my wife asks me? "Whats this movie about?!?!"

with XBMC it makes that go away and I dont go crazy. Wish there was a i5 version around $250 but thats just not realistic yet.

As an HTPC, the A6-1450 is probably one of AMD's best low-power CPU's, substantially better GPU than the Bay Trail Celeron and pretty much on-par with the i3 for nearly half the price.

The spec's between the Celeron and A6 are pretty similar, both have a ~1500 CPUBENCH, 7w TDP, quad core modular design, etc. The problem with Bay Trail is that PowerVR GPU.
