Zotac recently launched a couple of revamped ZBox nettops, that feature a new, sleeker design and integrated Blu-Ray drive, the ZBox HD-ID33 and HD-ID34. The only difference between the two models is the included / not included RAM and hard drive; the ID33 is better suited to DIYers who may already have a spare 2.5" HDD and SO-DIMM laying around, while the ID34 ships with a 250GB 5400RPM drive and 2GB of RAM. There's also NVIDIA's next generation Ion (Ion 2) inside, which means that 1080p playback and some light-duty gaming should theoretically be no problem...
Zotac Blu-ray HD-ID34 Nettop / HTPC Review
Smaller and more combined with your current home network.
I am really digging this one!
For any of us that remember having to pay $1000 for a VHS, this is a pretty cool leap ahead! :P
To me this makes a whole lot of sense as a simple compact HTPC. Maybe that is why they designed it to sit next to a Bose system and match up.
This is too much money and not enough is included in the price.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.

Yeah, but it may be nice when it goes on the Thursday Fry's sales ad in 2011 for $150

I'll wait for a Shell Shocker Deal since there are no FRY's around here.

I can attest, this is a really nice machine. Low power, quiet and a solid HTPC solution that tucks out of the way completely. Wireless keyboard, mouse and you're done.
