Hands-on with Zotac's tiny VR-ready PC

Gordon Mah Ung | March 17, 2016
Zotac's Magnus EN380 packs a full-on water-cooled GeForce GTX 980 and Skylake processor.

Pricing and availability

Zotac says its hasn't set a price yet but I’m going to guess it’ll be between $1,500 and $2,000. Here's my reasoning: You really can’t buy into a gaming laptop for less than $2,200. But that includes OS, RAM, Storage, keyboard, and monitor, too. The EN980 will come bare-bones, so you’ll have to add RAM, storage, and OS. There's a price premium for small computers but I can’t see this costing close to what companies charge for an entire laptop.

The Magnus won’t be available for a few months, with this summer as the target. Zotac has no plans for a Steam version just yet, so it’ll likely be Windows for most machines initially.
