More Mini PCs from ZOTAC Show Up Powered by AMD FUSION Stephen Fung March 2, 2011 Press Release ZOTAC announced a few more little wonders to their already wide range of tiny PCs built for HTPC use. Their latest ZBOX AD02 series is built upon AMD’s FUSION E-350 APU which means that it’ll play back all your stuff and be able to game a little as well. Most importantly, the FUSION APU inside sips very little power, allowing it to stay cool and quiet while smooshed up in your home theatre system somewhere. The ZBOX AD02 ships in two flavours: AD02 and AD02 Plus. The plus ships totally ready to go with a 250GB hard drive, 2GB or DDR3 SO-DIMM memory but leave the OS up to you. The AD02 does away with the hard drive and memory so that you can outfit those two pieces yourself. Both have USB 3.0, USB 2.0 and eSATA for hooking up those external storage solutions. No pricing or shipping details were unveiled, but you can read the full press release below to see if anything else jumps out at you. We’ve also got a ton of pictures posted too.
