ZOTAC ZBOX HD-ND22 - mini PC - Celeron SU2300 1.2 GHz - 0 MB

I prefer the do-it-yourself variety, something in a mid-tower enclosure with a powerful CPU and graphics card, near-silent Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22, multiple hard drives, a quality sound card, and expansion and connectivity options out the wazoo. One of the best things about having a PC is being able to swap out parts and alter a Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 configuration with ease, and I wouldn't settle for anything less for my primary desktop. However, I also have a deep appreciation for the Mac mini. There's a simple beauty in the mini's styling and an elegance to its minimalist approach to, well, everything. Apple's bite-sized Mac isn't a lot of computer, but it's enough for what most average users actually do with their systems on a day-to-day basis.


The mini's modest components draw little power and get by with quiet cooling, and the whole thing can be squeezed into a svelte enclosure with a tiny footprint. The fact is that most people only Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 a little bit of PC. Even in my own home, there are certain rooms in which I want an unobtrusive PC but don't require anything special.

Atom-powered nettops have comparable footprints and are much cheaper. However, they also deliver significantly less in the performance department. Intel's Atom CPU is Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 for ultraportables, where its sluggish performance is at least tempered with exceptional battery life, but the Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 processor is a much harder sell in systems tied permanently to wall sockets. In a desktop, even a dual-core Atom spinning four threads via Hyper-Threading can easily get bogged down with multi-tabbed browsing and reasonable attempts at multitasking.

Last year, budget ultraportables were rescued from the Atom's restrictions by the introduction of Intel's own consumer ultra-low voltage CULV processors. Although it wasn't the fastest chip on the block, the Celeron was nevertheless a huge step up from the Atom. Now, nearly a year after its initial arrival, the SU has worked its Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 into the nettop market inside one of Zotac's Zbox barebones systems.


The ND22 uses the very same chassis as the Atom-based system, which means it measures a scant 7. Those dimensions make the Zbox a wee bit smaller than a Nintendo Wii and about the same size as a Mac mini. Such a configuration would require three chips to cover what the Ion does with one. Plenty of ports The Zbox is reasonably well equipped as far as small-form-factor desktops go. Along its front edge, the ND22 lines up one USB port, a memory card reader, and headphone and microphone jacks. Those are the only analog audio ports in the entire Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22, but at least they're up front to make it easy to connect a headset for your next Skype session.

The living room is a different story, of course. Just around the corner from the power button lies another USB port hidden behind some kind of rubberized contraceptive device. This particular edge faces skyward when the Zbox in its upright position, making the port easy to access in any orientation.

This might be a budget system, but it also has only one hard drive bay, and a 2. With no optical drive, you can bet the Zbox is going to spend a reasonable amount of time connected to an external storage device of some kind. If you're going to rely on network-attached storage, the Zbox at least has a Gigabit Ethernet port stemming from its Ion chipset. An AzureWave Wi-Fi card provides Instead of shipping the Zbox with a conventional external antenna that plugs into the rear port cluster, Zotac integrated one into the chassis. That's a nice idea; however, the implementation falls short on the reception front. The embedded antenna maintains a decent signal throughout my admittedly small Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 home, but it Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 hold a connection reliably out in the garage.

Neither my Acer ultraportable nor my Eee PC has any problem staying connected in the garage, and I've even had a Mini-ITX system with a Zotac motherboard and an external antenna working just fine out there. Your mileage may vary, of course, but we observed similarly weak reception with the Atom-based Zbox ID11, Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 uses the same internal antenna. The Zbox is sold as a barebones system, so Zotac ZBOX HD-ND22 lacks a hard drive, memory, and operating system.
