Dubai, October 8, 2009
Zotac International, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, has launched the world’s first everywhere PC -- Zotac MAG (mini all-in-one giant) system.
The Zotac MAG is a compact system that fits anywhere from the living room, kitchen, or the office while delivering high-definition video playback and outstanding productivity performance while sipping miniscule amounts of energy.
Combining a high-performance Nvidia Ion graphics processor with a choice of energy-efficient dual-core Intel Atom 330 or single-core Atom 230 processors, the Zotac MAG delivers an eco-friendly computing experience in a compact 186mm x 189mm x 38mm package.
“As users start equipping every room in their house with computers for a true networked digital home experience, space and power conservation becomes an issue, especially for larger houses,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, Zotac International.
“With the Zotac MAG series, we’re providing users with a system suitable anywhere inside a house. The compact size, performance and energy efficiency makes the Zotac MAG perfect for all computing uses.”
The Zotac MAG is the world’s first system to combine a slim chassis with sleek good looks and a completely ready to use system, but still let owners select their own operating system, said a statement.
Whether it’s Windows XP, Vista, 7, 32-bit, 64-bit or Linux, the Zotac MAG ships without an operating system, which lets the end user choose what they want to run.
The Zotac MAG features a 160GB hard drive and 2GB of DDR2-800 memory for a complete system. Users need only add a keyboard, mouse, their choice of a display and operating system.
“We evaluated the market demands for miniature PC systems and every user has different operating system preferences for their digital home connected PCs,” Berger added.
“By letting the end user select the operating system they want to load, they’re in control of making it the perfect digital home connected system for their preferences.”
There’s flexibility with how the Zotac MAG is situated as well. The Zotac MAG can be situated in three ways – flat on a surface, on it’s stand or mounted to the back of a monitor with Vesa mounting holes – no matter where its placed, the end user can choose how it’s set up.
The Zotac MAG features an array of connectivity options with compatibility with current standards, including eSATA, 6 USB 2.0 ports, Gigabit Ethernet, VGA, HDMI (Full HD 1080p compatible), optical S/PDIF output and a 4-in-1-memory card reader (SD/MS/MS Pro/xD).
Wireless 802.11n Wi-Fi is also integrated for quick network transfers, the statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
