It's got a solid processor, a stunningly small form factor, and promises pristine Blu-ray playback.

The latest creation from Zotac is a mini PC that's fully equipped to take over your home theater system. It's small, it's slick, and it plays Blu-rays with ease.

"The ZOTAC ZBOX Blu-ray series is more than just a system for playing games and watching movies," explains marketing director Carsten Berger, "[it] is the ultimate multimedia hub for all your entertainment needs and replaces the function of multiple electronics devices."

Berger's not wrong, the Zbox can do just about everything. Since it's a PC, there's no need to worry about getting an app for Netflix, or whether you'll be able to play back a specific file type. You can, because it's a PC that does PC things.

The newest Zbox also comes with built in WiFi functionality, a pair of USB 3.0 ports and plenty of room for RAM and hard drive expansion.
