Having a small gaming machine is the goal of a number of users - I personally tend to oscillate between something massive and something small, but either way, I want it powerful. Here at CES, Zotac had its new MEK Mini on display and the design ID of it looks really impressive, along with good specifications inside.

The MEK Mini was previewed back at Computex, but is set to hit the market at the end of Q1. Inside it will have a custom motherboard, an Intel 8th Generation processor, Zotac's RTX 2070 mini graphics card, and the system will be equipped with Wi-Fi and dual network ports (Intel and Killer). The units on display were near-final production parts, and the company is working on which color combinations work best. There was an NVIDIA green, a white, a mirror finish, and a dark red. Personally, I liked the green and the mirror finish. All it needs now is a handle!

Pricing is not finalized, and will depend on processor choice and memory. The MEK Mini sits as the smallest member of the MEK family, alongside the MEK Ultra Gaming PC and MEK1.

    That's not a bad looking option as long as the mini graphics card is standard form factor other than being shorter than normal to allow reasonable bi-yearly upgrades.

    I'm not sure about the decision to go with an external power brick. It's probably going to be a 300-400W model is is going to be big and chunky, and I think I'd've preferred an SFX PSU tucked away inside somewhere even if the external AC plug lead to a short internal AC cable instead of directly to the PSU.

    As much as I love Transformers, I just can't stand that style in anything that is not an actual spaceship or robot, so even if it's technically impressive, it's a big NOPE for me.

    Doesn't that look like the bitfenix logo?
    I'm all for mineaturizing today's monster parts, in a practical way, keeping customizability.
