The small form factor PCs are meant for business professionals and sport features like Intel AMT and Intel UNITE.

Earlier this week, Zotac released several new additions to their ZBOX line of mini PCs. Business professionals in search of a capable desktop computer with a small footprint now have a few more options to explore from Zotac.

The ZBOX CI549 Nano and ZBOX MI549 Nano are both equipped with:

On the front of the device, both versions sport an SD card slot, dedicated headphone and microphone jacks, a USB 3.0 Type-A port, and two USB 3.1 (Gen 1) Type-C ports. The only difference between the models is cooling: the CI549 is passively cooled while the MI549 has an internal fan. Since the CI549 lacks an active cooling solution, it is a bit bigger than the MI549 (5.76” x 4.98” x 2.38” compared to the MI549’s 5.03” x 4.98” x 2.00”). The CI549’s chassis also features large perforations to help with airflow.

Both devices are highly tuned for business use. The CI549 and MI549 feature Intel AMT technology for remote repairs and maintenance and Intel UNITE for easy screen sharing (think boardroom presentations). The devices will officially debut at CeBIT 2017 in Hannover, Germany between March 20-24. Pricing is yet to be announced, but we will surely get more information next week at CeBIT.

I've been a "tech-head" my entire life. After graduating college with a degree in Mathematics, I worked in finance and banking a few years before taking a job as a Systems Analyst for my local school district. I started working with Notebookcheck in October of 2016 and have enjoyed writing news articles and notebook reviews. My areas of interest include the business side of technology, retro gaming, Linux, and innovative gadgets. When I'm not hunched over an electronic device or writing code for a new database, I'm either outside with my family, playing a decade-old video game, or sitting behind a drum set.
