Ben over at The Tech Report has taken Zotac's new Zbox Magnus EN970 out for a test drive. These mini pc boxes seem to be getting more popular for the htpc crowd. Head on over and check it out to see what they thought.

The miniaturization of PCs is an interesting trend. Of late, PC makers have been able to pack big computing power in boxes smaller than some mid-range graphics cards. We've looked at some of those systems, like a pair of Intel's Next Unit of Computing boxes. The NUCs are missing something, though, and that's graphics horsepower.

Zotac thinks it has the cure for what ails us in the Zbox Magnus EN970. The Magnus packs a Broadwell CPU, an Nvidia Maxwell-based graphics card, and lots of space for storage into a box not much bigger than a Mac mini.
