CES 2011, Las Vegas -Zotac has unveiled some new barebones HTPC machines that look more like a normal Blu-ray player than a HTPC. That is a good thing too since these machines will be in an entertainment center along with your other gear. The machines are the Zbox Blu-ray AD03 and AD03 Plus. They are exactly the same save one key feature.

The Plus version comes packed with 2GB of RAM and a 250GB HDD whereas the standard version has no memory or storage and the user has to add their own. Neither of the machines come with an OS installed. They both use the AMD E-350 APU running at 1.6GHz with dual-cores. Graphics for the machine are handled by AMD Radeon HD 6310 GPU with 80 shaders and an engine clock of 500MHz.

 

Other features include a USB 3.0 port, a single mini-PCI Express expansion port, a slot-loading Blu-ray drive, Gigabit Ethernet, and WiFi. The machines support Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD sound and ship with Cyberlink PowerDVD software for playback of Blu-ray movies. The Plus version will sell for $499 and the normal version is $399.
