I'm not convinced that a $400-$600 price point makes me want one of these. Don't get me wrong, compared to something like a WYSE terminal, these things rock but as a traditional tower owner, I can't take them seriously - yet. With the steambox and things like that coming out, it will be interesting to see what smaller kits can do. Viva la mobile revolución!
Worst thing I have ever bought, three months after purchase board went dead, have been calling email for the last six months nothing but the run around. Every conversation was kept, they can never find anything and hope you will give up and they will not have to honour the warranty. If I was you I would not purchase this product unless you want to waste your money.
Had happily bought a Zotac a while ago, and loved it ....until the fan started to wear out (which will happen pretty soon, google for it you'll see). Now, the thing is Zotac DOESN'T sell replacement fans, and they are custom made. So, after a while, you might as well throw the box. Never again a Zotac, at least not until they fix this burning issue. And I recommend you to buy something else.
Are you sure it not just dust muck on the fan and general dust?
