I don’t think it would have a chance with that integrated graphics card. Apple TV which will be released soon or Andriod slated for the summer might be a better choice when it is released.

At the bottom of this link are the needed specs for a computer to run Zwift: https://zwift.com/get-started

There is a chance that that mini computer could work at a minimum level now but in the future it probably will not. Don’t aim for the minimum computer requirements, you should be at least aiming for recommended.

When using apple TV, what about the ANT+ sensors? Can Apple TV read them?

My guess is no. They don’t mention graphics ram I recently move my trainer downstairs and was looking at these cheap options. None seemed to work for less than 500. I took a old cheap hp pc that was destined for the trash. Upgraded the ram from 2 to 4 gb. Then added a cheap mini 1gb graphics card. Total cost. 129.00. I installed win 7 64bit (10.00) and works great. I use my big screen in the downstairs. Machine only has win and zwift installed. Nothing else. Total. 139.

I installed Zwift on a Minix Neo and it worked, yes. Quality wasn’t great, but it worked! My guess is it was at the “basic” graphics quality with a framerate of 20 or so.
