    As the box contains a UK plug it looks like we will see this here.

    Probably at £199 given their dollar/euro pricing of 199/199

    Rough conversion...

    $199 = £120
    199 euro = £160

    Let's see how badly we get shafted then.

    Thats only a currency conversion, it doesnt include tax and import duty differences.

    That said, once its been imported into a euro country, import duty no longer applies, as there is none between EU member states, which only leaves VAT differences.

    Assuming the euro price is without VAT, that would take it from £160 to £192, near enough for them to just peg the UK price at………£199!

    Would the Euro amount include any regional goods tax or not? You would assume it does as it's being listed at €199 for Euro countries. That would mean you wouldn't just whack on 20% for VAT. But they will and it will still be £199, no doubt.

    More interested in how it'll run Linux - CPU and GPU isn't a problem, it's the wifi, bluetooth and ethernet that I wonder about.

    The title says pocked-sized instead of pocket-sized.
    This would be an interesting replacement for docked laptops.

    Re: News - ZOTAC launches pocked-sized ZBOX PI320 pico PC

    Why do we have this discussions on tax and currency transfers EVERY TIME! Let it go... please.

    Im a little disappointed the mount actually blocks VESA rather than allowing both to be used, seems unnecessary to me.

    Otherwise this thing looks awesome, i really like the Zotac flavour of Mini PC and already have a couple of them.

    I'd rather ask why on every single thread someone decides to try and compare the US and UK price without considering the tax/duty that both us and our american friends have to pay, and then bitches about it Someone sensible has to come along and point out that they are wrong and its an unfair (and daft) comparison

    Sounds like a good gadget though - not sure what "Bing experience" is about mind, can't seem to find much about it but hopefully it's removable..its the one major downside other than the price. Seeing some interesting stuff coming out of ZOTAC, definitely one to watch. Love their weekly hearthstone tournaments too

    So close, but couple of things that I'd be willing to pay a little more for.

    Wifi AC, Network 10/100/1000 and USB 3

    Still waiting for the time when this sort of functionality can be done with a VM on my phone.
