Sleek new mini PC costs less than AED 1,000
Nettop costs approximately $270 and will be available in the UAE later this month
Hong-Kong based ZOTAC has launched their first nettop that it is marketed as the "world's first everywhere PC".
The ZOTAC MAG (Mini All-in-one Giant) comes with a 160GB hard drive, an NVidia Ion graphics processor and the choice of a dual-core Intel Atom 330 or single-core Atom 230 processor. It's dimensions measure just 186mm x 189mm x 38mm.
"As users start equipping every room in their house with computers for a true networked digital home experience, space and power conservation becomes an issue, especially for larger houses," said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International. "With the ZOTAC MAG series, we're providing users with a system suitable anywhere inside a house. The compact size, performance and energy efficiency makes the ZOTAC MAG perfect for all computing uses."
The ZOTAC MAG ships without a display or operating system, which the company believes is the right way to go.
"We evaluated the market demands for miniature PC systems and every user has different operating system preferences for their digital home connected PCs. By letting the end user select the operating system they want to load, they're in control of making it the perfect digital home connected system for their preferences," Berger added.
The compact system will be available at Sharaf DG stores in the UAE by mid-October for approximately $270 (AED 990).
