The ZBOX Nano ID64 Plus
ZOTAC stick with their familiar chassis design for the latest ZBOX Nano, using a high shine top which has a blue LED circle which is invisible when off. The centre section of the system is a silver and moves away from the plastic on the top to metal.
On the base are four rubber feet and two vents along with product information stickers and by removing the feet, which are actually screws we can lift off the base.
Looking at the sides of the PC, the left features a vent and Kensington Lock slot, the right is blank.
Round at the back we find the main connectivity which runs from power input through DisplayPort, HDMI, 2xUSB 3.0, GB-LAN, 2xUSB 3.0 to eSATA ending with the Wi-Fi antenna. The front of the system has further connectivity in the form of 3.5mm audio in/out, card reader, 2x USB 2.0 and then we get activity LEDs and the power button as well as an IR receiver.
As noted earlier it is very simple to get inside the base of the system and this reveals the Intel N-2230 Wi-Fi/Bluetooth adapter, 4GB of Kingston DDR3-1600 and 500GB Toshiba 2.5" hard drive.
Moving to the CPU ZOTAC install an i5-3337U which is a 17w, 1.8GHz-2.7GHz dual core model featuring hyper-threading (4 threads at one time) and integrated Intel HD4000 graphics. This gives us DirectX11 support as well as the ability to accelerate (and enhance) HD video. GPU computing is also supported as is audio over HDMI.
Next we have the BIOS which uses the same "bright" colour scheme we have seen from ZOTAC on previous models including the recent ID89. Given the compact chassis ZOTAC have not opened up overclocking on this BIOS, we get a nice simple set of basic settings though.
