Xi3 demonstrated its Z3RO Pro Computer, a small form factor computer the size of a small paperback, at the 2013 International CES.

Housed in Xi3’s smallest chassis (1.875×4.875×3.625-inches), the Z3RO Pro Computer is designed for general computer use, including home and office environments, and is powerful enough for specialty applications such as digital signage environments and home theater use, says the company.

Z3RO Pro Computers ship standard with openSUSE Linux v11.2, but will also run an array of other x86-based Operating Systems, including Windows 8 and lower, UNIX, and other Linux variants.

The Z3RO Pro Computer will be available later this year; prices start from $399.
