Zotac All-in-One Mini-PC / Cineblax's First Computer Post!

Here is my next computer. The Zotac ZBOX Intel Atom D525 1.8 GHz Dual Core with Blu-ray All-in-One Mini-PC. This little baby packs a punch an is only "7.36 x 11.02 x 1.5". Besides the small size, it looks like something out of the latest Star Trek movie. If you would of told me I could have a computer this small, that plays Blu-Ray discs and boots in a few seconds.....I would have said "sure and pull this other leg and it plays Jingle bells" (a quote from my favorite TV character Johnny Drama). Beside the specs below, it also has space for a 2.5-inch SATA hard drive (drop a OCZ Vertex 3 SSD and watch it scream). Here are the specs:
• NVIDIA® PureVideo™ HD technology
• NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology
• Adobe® Flash® Player 10.1 acceleration
• Microsoft® DirectX® 10.1 compatible
• Microsoft® DirectCompute ready
• OpenGL® 3.2 compatible
• OpenCL compatible
• Integrated 802.11n WiFi (300Mbps)
Internal Expansion
• 1 2.5-inch SATA 3.0 Gb/s hard drive
• 9.5mm height HDD compatible
• 2 200-pin DDR2-800 SO-DIMM
• Up to 4GB memory
• 1 Mini-PCI Express slot
• NVIDIA® ION™ GPU (w/512MB DDR3 memory)
• Intel® Atom™ D525 CPU (1.8 GHz, dual-core)

Display Outputs

The price might be a little steep...$500, but only by today's standards, (Remember what a 500 dollar computer would get you back in infancy of home computers?)......I gotta have one!!!!
