zotac-zboxNot all computers are created equal, that is for sure. The thing is, we are more often than not familiar with a rectangular or square shaped PC chassis, although over the years, the designs of these rectangles and boxes have been refined, looking sleeker than ever before, while others will boast of a transparent display that lets you see what is going on within. With the ZBOX 01520 from ZOTAC, you know you are in for a treat since this is a special PC case that comes in the shape of an orb.

I suppose some other folks would describe the ZBOX 01520 to resemble that of the Google Nexus Q which did not really manage to live up to expectations, and had a really short shelf life actually. The thing is, this is no successor to the Google Nexus Q, but rather, it has all the innards of a standard issue computer to help you crunch figures as well as churn out reports on a word processor. Underneath the rounded chassis, the ZOTAC ZBOX 01520 will run on an Intel Core i3-4010U Haswell processor with Intel HD 4400 graphics, carry a quartet of USB 3.0 ports, has three USB 2.0 ports, sport 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, DisplayPort, and an SD memory card reader. There is no word on pricing or availability as at press time though.
