Good value mini PC - But, NOT FOR WIN XP

G. Davies "Commander Zero", Amazon
25 May 2013
  • Summary: Bought one of these PC's this week - great price really. Has USB-3 on board, built in Bluetooth & Wi-Fi and takes DDR3 SODIMM RAM. However, the chipset and/or BIOS will not complete an install of Windows XP, mine would just not see the HDD during the install though BIOS reported it correctly.

After 4 of these with Win7 pro, they're great.

12 May 2013
  • Summary: I've built/configured 4 of these so far in the last few months. They are used for email, excel, access (basically Office 2013). No complaints from users so far. I haven't had any issues with these little PC's yet. This last Zotac I received shows 1.30ghz not 1.20ghz.

THIS is the Zotac Box you want! Not the Atom based Zotac BB units!

Tony Romeo "ElderGeek", Amazon
28 April 2013
  • Summary: Very fast compared to any Of the Zotac BB PCs with the Atom processor in it. This maxes out at 16GB, and it will run Windows 7 x64 very well! I only have 8GB in mine, and it can stream HD, play uncompressed music using JRiver's Media Player. In short, its a great HTPC box: small and quiet.

Decent machine

Julie T., Amazon
25 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this machine to replace my aging Acer Aspire machine. It is a decent machine, with lots of nice features. I installed 16G (2x8G)RAM, 120G SSD hard drive, and 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. Pros: The intel HM65 mother board supports up to 16G RAM, which makes GIMP & Photoshop running very fast.

Tom Servo, Amazon
