The Mek Mini is one step up from the ZBox series in terms of performance, features, and upgradeability. Its ample ventilation grilles on five of its six sides should hopefully be enough to keep temperatures and noise in check.

Unveiled at CES 2019, Zotac is finally ready to launch its sleek Mek Mini small form factor PC. The system is notable for being a bit larger than Zotac's all-popular ZBox mini PCs but with standard LGA 1151 CPU options and an upgradeable short-length GeForce RTX graphics card.

As the miniature version of the Mek Ultra PC tower, the Mek Mini is just 9.18 Liters and 261 mm tall to be roughly comparable to the MSI Trident 3. Current SKUs, however, appear to be limited to the Core i7-8700 and GeForce RTX 2070 for now. It's important to note that the system utilizes not one, but two external AC adapters much like on the ZBox Magnus EK71080.

As is typical of Zotac, the manufacturer is not mentioning any prices for the Mek Mini PC. Expect the system to be available in the next few weeks via major online retailers like Newegg and Amazon. Interestingly, all initial units will only come in black whereas a whole range of colors were showed off at CES 2019 including Lime Green and Red. Here's hoping that Zotac will reintroduce those extra color options in the future.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
