Zotac ZBox Pico PI320
     Fri, Dec 26 2014 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zotac is a company with lots of experience when it comes to small PC’s. We have reviewed some of them before and always come away impressed.The little PC we are testing today, and it really is little, is their smallest yet as it quite literally fits in your pocket. Even though it is small it still comes with WIndows 8 and is by all accounts a proper PC. It might not fit all users but it turns out to be a nifty little PC with several interesting use-cases.

MSI AG270 2QE-037US Gaming AIO Review - Core i7 + GTX 980M
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To overcome that price difference, you have to consider the advantages offered by a system like the AG270. Integration: you get all of this hardware in a small overall package that is pre-built and warrantied. Mobility: though not as mobile as a notebook you can definitely take this system to different rooms or even LAN parties with relative ease. Size: the 27-in 1080p screen will definitely provide a better integrated gaming experience than any 15-in or 17-in notebook. Simplicity: you get a touch screen and the ability to have a single computer that Mom and Dad can safely use, while also harnessing the power of the GTX 980M for your Battlefield addiction."

Intel Pentium J2900 & Asrock Q2900-ITX Review
     Fri, Oct 10 2014 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our budget CPU roundup earlier this year, AMD's Kabini Athlon 5350 squared off against Intel's Bay Trail-D Celeron J1900, showing itself to be better at gaming and encoding workloads. The new Asrock Q2900-ITX ships with a Pentium J2900 on a Mini-ITX board for $104 and is aimed straight against the same AMD offering. The Pentium chip is nearly identical to Intel's Celeron J1900 at first glance, but differs in raw clock speed.
