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.
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.

I have to disagree with that, but not fully. At one of the schools I teach at we have some mini PC's running Windows 7 with 1st generation AMD dual core APU's with Radeon HD 6000 series GPU's on the die. They are stocked with 4gb of DDR3 RAM, and 80gb HDD's. No they won't play BF4 or even BF3, but the kids sometimes load up World of Tanks or Mechwarrior Online and while they can't play the games on full tilt eye candy, the games are playable with decent frame rates.
If you want a true gaming machine you get a gaming PC or a console system. If you want a small PC to plug into your TV that can play many games, and Windows, but you don't care about the latest and greatest PC games, then this is a decent solution.
