Zotac ZBOX 01520 Mini-PC Looks Like Bowling Ball
Here’s an interesting ZBOX mini-PC.  In addition to its Steam Machine and Haswell-powered ZBOX nano ID67, Zotac also had on display this week during CES 2014 the ZBOX 01520, a bowling-ball-shaped mini-PC with a flat foundation to keep it from rolling off the desk.,25721.html#xtor=RSS-181
