      The Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus desktop has the chops to go beyond its intended media.

      The Zotac Zbox ID83 Plus ($472.99 list) is a reasonably priced small-form-factor desktop that packs a decent punch into its compact chassis. With a third-generation Intel "Ivy Bridge" processor, generous port selection, and support for dual-display output, it has the chops to go beyond its intended media-consumption purposes, in turn allowing users to dabble in some media creation as well as daily computing tasks. These attributes, alongside its sub-$500 sticker price, help overshadow its shortcomings, like the absence of an operating system or bundled peripherals, and make it a viable way to rev up any home theater.

      The Zbox ID83 Plus measures 7.4 by 1.7 by 7.4 inches (HWD), making it smaller than the Acer Aspire AX1930-UR10P but roughly on par with the compact Giada i53 Mini PC. With a silver strip lining the outer edges of its otherwise all-black body, its two-tone finish makes for an appealingly simple design. Although the glossy black portion invariably attracts fingerprints, chances are you won't be touching the system very often, since it will likely be nestled behind your TV or monitor. Given its tiny size and quiet fan operation, there's even a good chance that you'll forget it's there. A circular blue LED on the side of the chassis provides a cool visual effect, while the opposite side of the chassis sports four rubber feet to provide a grip for horizontal positioning. Alternatively, the system ships with a stand for vertical orientation as well as a VESA monitor mount.
