Shuttle introduces the X70S, a new All-in-One barebone computer that supports Intel's LGA1155 processors.
Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, the
European subsidiary of Shuttle Inc., one of the leading developers and
manufacturers of compact PC solutions such as the world-renowned XPC
Mini-PC Barebones, expands its range of All-in-One PCs with integrated
monitors and adds a 46.7 cm (18.5") version to its original 39.5 cm
As well as offering a larger display, the new Shuttle All-in-One
Barebone X70S also provides significantly more power. For the first
time conventional Intel desktop processors can be used for the LGA1155
socket, e.g. Intel Core i3/i5/i7 (up to 65 W TDP, heatpipe-cooled).
DDR3 RAM up to a total of 16 GB can be installed in the two SO-DIMM
slots. The 5.7 x 46.8 x 36.4 cm (DWH) chassis of the X70S also has
space for a 2.5" drive (SSD/HDD) as well as expansions via the
Mini-PCIe slot, which can be fitted, for example, with an mSATA
The new model comes with Wi-Fi, webcam, microphone and stereo speakers
for communication and media playback. Connectors for external speakers
and microphone are also available. A second monitor can be hooked up
via the HDMI interface. There are 2x USB 3.0 and 6x USB 2.0 ports on
the side of the machine. The integrated card reader can read and write
to standard SD memory cards.
The two Gigabit network cards of the X70S, up to three serial
interfaces (COM) and a parallel interface (LPT) make the system
suitable for unconventional applications. If you remove the pedestal
at the rear of the machine, the X70S can be fitted to a VESA wall
mount, monitor arm or floor stand.
"We envisage the X70S being used in the digital signage segment, as a
service terminal at POI, as a till system at POS or simply as a
powerful desktop PC, depending on configuration," says Tom Seiffert,
Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "With its
size, this machine fills an interesting gap and opens up interesting
scenarios in combination with a second monitor."
With the separately available PCL70 accessory, the X70S can be
expanded with two additional serial interfaces (COM) and a parallel
The recommended retail price for the Shuttle All-in-One Barebone X70S
