The Zotac ZBox nano XS AD11 Plus mini-PC is here with an AMD E-450 APU, an AMD Radeon HD 6320 CPU, a 64GB mSATA SSD and Windows 7 with Aero UI to boot. Though the device’s name may sound like it has some identity issues, the company claims it to be ‘extra small and pocketable.’

The mini-PC happens to feature AMD Steady Video, AMD Perfect Picture HD, and Microsoft DirectX technologies on the specifications front. It arrives with Gigabit Ethernet, a couple of SuperSpeed USB 2.0 ports, a pair of USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI output and a combo eSATA/USB 2.0 port. 2GB DDR3 memory, a microphone input, a 6-in-1 memory card reader and an integrated IR receiver are just part of the connectivity options.

“Size matters when it comes to desktop systems. We are always trying to push full-featured systems into the smallest size possible,” remarked Carsten Berger, marketing director, Zotac International. “Our new Zotac ZBox nano XS AD11 Plus shows that you can pack a complete high-definition capable desktop PC into a miniature form factor that conveniently fits in the smallest places.”

But let’s get to the main point here – the new nano XS is almost 17% smaller than its predecessor. Its chassis is basically a 106mm box which has a 37mm height. What’s more, it’s the first time Zotac is bringing in SSD storage with the 64GB mSATA SSD we’ve already mentioned above.

The Zotac ZBox nano XS mini-PC price starts at $359.99. But anyone looking to lay hands on one may probably have to take lessons in patience since it was out of stock when we last checked.
