Zotac MEK1 Black (i7-7700, GTX 1070Ti) Mini Gaming PC Review

Rating: 8.0.

In this review we take a look at the Zotac MEK1 mini gaming PC. The MEK1 manages to use an ultra-slim Mini ITX form factor without sacrificing performance as it still features an i7-7700 and a GTX 1070 Ti. We tested it across a range of games and benchmarks to see if it is worth the £1439 asking price.
