Zotac announces new Zbox series with Blu-ray and USB 3.0

By on
Zotac today announced the "world's first" (that title never gets old eh?) mini-PC with a built-in Blu-ray drive. The new Zbox addresses a small hole in the company's previous offerings, which lack integrated Blu-ray, meaning you have to buy a separate reader for a more complete home entertainment package. The included optical drive can also burn DVDs and CDs, and it comes with a free copy of Cyberlink's commercial media player software.

The company is shipping two flavors of its new model, the HD-ID33 and HD-ID34. The first is more of a barebones machine that includes an Intel Atom D525, a 512MB Nvidia Ion, a 6-in-1 card reader, a mini-PCIe slot, USB 2.0, 3.0, eSATA, HDMI, and DVI ports, as well as wired and wireless network connectivity. All of those features are the same on the HD-ID34, except it also includes 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a 250GB HDD. Zotac is quiet on pricing and availability.
