Looking to pick up a new box. I reall like the ND22 and was looking for a replacement for that box with a little more CPU.

I like the form factor and reliablity of the ZBOX's

I'm a little worried about the Intel HD3000 integrated graphics. Would they be enough to handle everything without hiccups?

I'll quickly post the specs, Any opinions would be great.

Assembly Configuration Barebone (no RAM, HDD, and OS)
CPU Integrated Intel Core i3 2330M 2.2 GHz Dual-Core
Chipset Intel HM65 Express
Cooler Type Fan
Onboard Video Intel HD Graphics 3000
Onboard Audio High-definition analog stereo
Optical Digital S/PDIF output
Onboard LAN 10/100/1000Mbps, WiFi 802.11n/g/b
Memory Size Up to 16GB
Memory Slots 2 x 204-pin SO-DIMM

SATA 1 x 2.5-inch SATA 6 Gb/s
Video Ports 1 x HDMI, 1 x DVI
i wouldnt be afraid

I'm also very interested in the ID82, have been checking periodically on zotac site but still haven't seen it avail yet, wonder how much is the MSRP? I also have a ND22 and would like to update to i3 to get some more cpu power on playing some 720ps rmvb....

I like to build my own boxes but for small htpc the zboxes are just a lot cleaner internally than what I could built myselves so I've several zboxes at home for xbmc.
I'm seeing pre-orders on ebay for $395
Thanks for the heads-up.... wonder how much mark-up that one on ebay is, without ram/hd that's not exactly cheap.
dont expect it to be cheap.

the ID82 will be the most powerful zbox ever made.
I'm looking forward the ID82, with 4GB RAM and a SSD HD would be the best nettop.

I have spent days looking for a powerful nettop and I have found nothing!, the only decent hw is mac mini, with an intel i5 and 4GB RAM, don't get me wrong, I'm not an apple fanboy and I won't pay 600$ for that, I just want it for XBMC and downloading (and PVR), but where are the real alternatives?

Well, I hope we can play with the zotac ID82 soon Smile
zotac ID82 FTW!!
is the box available anywhere ?
not yet.

I'm gonna snatch one up once i can find one.

I'll let you guys know about the awesomeness...
oh it'll be awesome!!
I have Zbox ID40 and I'm really pleased with it!

This "ZBOX ID82" really seems to kick like hell, but the motfck*** GPU is intel s****.
How about it? Can Xbmc use it FULL for VC1/h264/mpeg2?
€ 339,00, approximately shipped in last Week of April in Germany (several stores)
