A Mini-PC typically appeals to anyone wanting small, silent and low power for general daily computing tasks. While this is perfectly fine in principle, it means you typically have to compromise down to something so underpowered you can literally only browse the web or update a spreadsheet, and just forget about upgrades. Processor advancements over the last several years have given you the ability to decode and play most of your media thanks to hardware CODECs on the above machine, but not much more. This has been a stereotype for years and Zotac just smashed that restrictive mold in one fell swoop with the all-new ZBOX C-Series Mini-PC. It might be low power and 100% passively cooled, but power is not something it lacks with configurations up to an Intel 8th generation Core i7 CPU inside. Can you really have your cake and eat it too? We’ll find out!
Pro Clockers would like to thank Zotac for sending the ZBOX C Series CI660 Nano mini PC over to check out!
Zotac’s take on the CI660 Nano:
