ZOTAC International announced a new addition to their ZBOX line with the HD-ID40 series mini-PC, with Intel’s dual-core Atom D525 processor and NVIDIA Ion GPU. Two models will be available: a pre-configured box with 2GB RAM and a 250GB hard drive, and a customizable kit with two DDR2-800 SO-DIMM slots and a 2.5-inch SATA storage bay. The mini PC won’t come bundled with an operating system, but is Capable of Windows 7 with Aero and DirectCompute.

ZOTAC® International, a leading innovator and the world’s largest channel manufacturer, today introduces the new ZBOX HD-ID40 series – a new mini-PC powered by Intel® Atom™ and NVIDIA® Next-Generation ION™ technologies.

“ZOTAC® listens to feedback from our users. As a result, the ZBOX HD-ID40 series follows the same award-winning formula as our previous mini-PCs but delivers new features that have been requested such as a faster CPU, improved WiFi and thermal performance, and more memory slots,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC® International.
