In a nutshell: Small form factor computers are great for those with small workspaces or those who want something that isn’t as big and loud as a normal sized tower computer. Zotac has unveiled its first small form factor PC capable of running Windows 11.

This week, computer maker Zotac unveiled a tiny Windows 11 PC at Computex 2022. The Zbox PI336 Pico is a small form factor (SFF) computer that is about the size of an external storage device (4.5″ x 3″ x 0.8″) ). This full-featured desktop computer can fit right in your pocket or hide behind a monitor out of sight.

The Zbox PI336 Pico mini chassis is powered by a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Celeron N6211 processor (boosted up to 3.0GHz) with UHD graphics, 4GB LPDDR4x RAM, and 128GB internal storage. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6E, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.2, two USB 3.1 Gen2 ports, one Type-C port, a headphone/microphone combo jack, and a Micro SDHC card reader. It also has HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.4 up to 2160p and supports a dual monitor setup.

The PI336 Pico comes preloaded with Windows 11 Pro and a separate USB flash drive for restoring the system to a factory or previous state.

It certainly won’t replace your HEDT rig or gaming PC, but it will make a great compact travel computer. It also comes with a mounting bracket if you’d rather hang it on a wall or place it behind a monitor, allowing it to be used as a standalone desktop PC in the living room. The device also does not need an AC power supply. The slightly larger adapter simply plugs directly into a wall outlet.

Zotac has yet to disclose pricing. The previous SFF PC in the Pico lineup, the Zbox PI335 running Windows 10, retailed for $230. The PI336 is an upgrade and the lack of chips has led to a price hike, so this model might cost a bit more. Zotac has yet to announce a release date.
