Shuttle send out a press release to inform us that they're now shipping Mini-PC systems with Windows 7 preinstalled.
All-in-One PCs and nettops benefit from low system requirements /
out-of-the-box compatibility for barebones
Shuttle Inc., market leader in the Mini-PC sector and manufacturer of
Multi-Form-Factor solutions, is now supplying complete systems in
Europe optionally with Microsoft Windows 7. Buyers benefit from
customised setups for individual models without the unnecessary burden
of third-party programs.
With new functions, improved resource management and an attractive
new look, the success of this new operating system seems assured.
Windows 7 offers an array of options previously only possible with the
installation of third-party programs. For instance, it is now possible
to burn ISO files and Blu-ray discs for the first time. The new Jump
Lists, Aero Shake, Peek and Snap features are practical enhancements
for everyday tasks. Windows 7 makes smarter use of RAM, only starts up
services when they are actually needed and works significantly faster
with SSDs than its predecessors. The Windows Media Center has been
made more user-friendly, Wordpad and Paint have a completely new look
and the Problem Step Recorder makes troubleshooting easier should any
"Shuttle has been successfully manufacturing complete systems based
on its Mini-PC-Barebones since 2004. All systems are developed and
produced in Germany", states Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at
Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "We chose the All-in-One-PC X50 as the
first model to be provided with Windows 7 since the operating speed
and new interface are of particular benefit with this system."
Turnkey Mini-PC complete systems with Windows 7 and 24-month
pick-up-and-return service are available now from specialist retailers
or via the Shuttle Systems Configurator.
