After listening to Hothardware's video, I have to agree that this ZBOX is pretty much a laptop without the screen especially at the price.
"You can't just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to
them. By the time you get it built, they'll want something new."
It is also impressive what all they can throw in such a small box. With a laptop you have roughly four times the space really.
