A Computer The Size Of A Small Paperback

Xi3 Corporation unveiled its Z3RO Pro Computer, a small form factor computer the size of a small paperback at the 2013 International CES trade show, January 8—11, 2013.

With a starting price point of $399, the Z3RO Pro Computer is designed to showcase the future of small form factor desktop computing. Housed in Xi3's smallest chassis (1.875x4.875x3.625-inches), the Z3RO Pro Computer is designed for general computer use, including home and office environments, and is powerful enough for specialty applications such as digital signage environments and home theater use.

"The Z3RO Pro Computer is the ideal size for the ultimate in small form factor x86-based general computing," said Jason A. Sullivan, founder, President and CEO. "In this post-PC era, it's clear that there's no reason to buy a tower or mini-tower computer ever again. Not only does the Z3RO Pro Computer help round out the Xi3 product line, it also marks the end of desktop computing as we've known it."

The Z3RO Pro Computer is available with

  • A dual-core 64-bit, x86-based processor running at 1.65GHz (with 2MB of Level2 Cache)
  • An integrated graphics processor (GPU) containing 80 graphics cores (or shaders)
  • 4GB of DDR3 RAM
  • 16GB—1TB of internal solid-state SSD storage (with up to 12Gbps throughput speeds)
  • Two display ports providing maximum resolution of 2560x1600 (including 1 HDMI/DisplayPort v1.2 and 1 Mini-DisplayPort v1.2)
  • Four eSATAp 3.0 ports
  • 1Gb Ethernet port
Z3RO Pro Computers operate at 15Watts of power, ship standard with openSUSE Linux v11.2, but will also run an array of other x86-based Operating Systems, including Windows 8 and lower, UNIX, other Linux variants, etc. General Availability of the Z3RO Pro Computer is slated to begin in the Second Quarter of 2013. Xi3 is accepting accept pre-orders on its Z3RO Pro Computer immediately.

Now this is what I'm talking about. You don't need to spend a few grand for a portable or small form factor computer. For those who need a compact workspace, Xi3 has a great line of products for you. I was just on their website and looked at their other products. Absolutely amazing!

Xi3 is probably correct in saying this is marking the end of desktop computing as we know it.
