Zotac ZBOX MAGNUS EN970 Giveaway

Recommended Posts

I'd like to have a computer like this as I believe that at this size, you get one killer machine! The sort of power within that tiny box is just crazy and I'd love to be able to use it as a portable machine. It's not a laptop and doesn't have the portability of a laptop, but does have a lot more power than the standard laptop, and I'm the sort of person to carry a battery bank around with me and the sort of person to make my own little WiFi hotspot to connect locally via RDP on my phone.

 

Good luck to the winner.

 

May the odds be ever in you're favor.

For a HTPC/occasional gaming system for the living room.

The device is powerful enough for the simple games that i play that too at mid to high settings.

Would turn that badboy into a small streaming gaming computer, connected to my TV.. always wanted a streaming gaming system, including a media center setup to stream movies and such. :-)

I am really intrigued by a streaming box which doubles as a capable gaming system which fits easily on top of your cable box. Time to replace my old Apple TV with something more versitile.

Would be nice since i often attend LANs, and it's a pain in the ass with my current 50pounds tower. Besides that, it's noisy as hell.

I really like the size of this machine. That's what generates my primary interest in it, and I love the fact that it's able to run a full desktop GPU fairly efficiently and effectively. I hope I win!

I could really put this starter system to use as a Christmas gift for my brother, who never got into desktop gaming and is still stuck with the console crowd.  I bet there would be plenty of game titles he would like playing on it.


Rig; CPU - Intel i7-4770k, MB - Asus Maximus VI Formula, Memory- Dominator Platinum 32GB, SSD - Samsung 840 Evo - OS, GPU - Asus GTX 780 Direct CU II, Case - Fractal Design R4 window, Monitor - Asus BG248QE X3 in surround.

I like it because of the exceptionally small form factor and would provide low watt operation. That it also outperforms my desktop in gaming performance would be the cherry on top.

Why I need this? 

Because my media PC has a crappy AMD APU that can barely pump out 1080p netflix streams. a 4K capable, portable Gaming rig in a small footprint would be absolutely ballin'.

I want it because I have a friend that wants to get into PC gaming and this would be the perfect Christmas gift for him. A Machine that can do 1080p no problem and its tiny. I think it would be a really good entry level gaming PCfor him,.

A powerful package in a small box, whats not to love? Being in a small house with a larger family, this thing would be a great space saver over any desktop.

Thanks for the Giveaway opportunity; this is my first post on the forums so hello everyone.

 

I’m most interested in the ZBOX’s capabilities for the average gamer; could devices like these replace tower computers altogether for users who don’t upgrade regularly?

Although I agree that the Zotac Zbox is a little pricey for what’s included, I’m still excited to see that PC’s are expanding into the micro-console market. As technology continues to grow and become more affordable, these smaller systems would be ideal for travel and provide a greater aesthetic appeal than towers.

Thanks for this opportunity LTT & Zotac. I really like the profile of the Magnus; it’s a real space saver and fantastically practical computer. Also, with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 I can efficiently contribute to BOINC projects like Folding@Home & Seti@Home whilst also enjoying a great gaming experience.
