The MEK1 Gaming PC is a very compact custom medium-PC from Zotac, which is a company who makes a lot of smaller form factor computers. However, this medium-PC as we have dubbed it is part of a more recent push for much more compact high-end gaming systems that use desktop parts but are put together in a way to minimize size.
We saw Corsair try this with their One PC, and it seems this type of custom development is very popular. The good news here is that from what we have seen, it's much easier to upgrade this machine as its custom design doesn't try to conform to some random shape, but instead utilizes a rectangular design that is more common. Let's see what this PC has to offer!
We get an i7-7700 CPU with dual channel 16GB DDR4 memory and a GTX 1070 Ti 8GB GPU, all of which are formidable desktop components. The PC comes with a 240GB NVMe M.2 drive and a 1TB HDD. We also get dual Gbit LAN ports (Realtek) and 1x1 Wireless-AC (Intel). The PC comes in at 16.4"x4.65"x16.34" (HxWxL).
The MEK1 Gaming PC is $1444.16 on Newegg.
