Shuttle presented a new All-in-One system with the Intel Atom 330 processor, the X 5000TA. This system features a 15.6" touchscreen with a 1366 x 768 pixel resolution, 1GB DDR2 memory, 160GB HDD and Windows Vista Home Basic. It's energy efficient and comes in a 36mm thin enclosure. The Shuttle X 5000TA will be available for 499EUR (excl. VAT).
The only 3.6 cm thin All-in-One-PC comes supplied with an Intel Atom 330 processor (2x 1.6 GHz), 1 GB DDR2 memory, a 160 GB hard disk and Windows Vista Home Basic. The X 5000TA's high-gloss finish together with the visual chrome elements break new ground.

"Compact, power-saving All-in-One-PCs open up new and interesting application areas whether as a second PC for fast internet access, as part of a home automation system, for IP/videotelephony or for the next generation to obtain their first computer experiences", says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. “The possibilities for these devices are also becoming increasingly apparent in the business sector; for instance information can be displayed at the POS and finger-based or stylus inputs can be made.”

Meeting the requirements of its All-in-One product category, the X 5000TA has the complete integration of a Mini-PC in a touch-sensitive 15.6 inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768. It also comes supplied with a 1.3 megapixel-webcam, sound-rich stereo loudspeakers, microphone and WLAN in the modern N-Standard.

Furthermore, the feature set includes Gigabit network, 5x USB 2.0, 6-channel audio, a card reader, Kensington-Lock, a VGA-out for external monitors and a control panel to adjust the loudspeakers, screen and the blue LED. An efficient Heatpipe Cooling System is present to cool the whole system effectively. A fanless, external 65 watt power supply provides the All-in-One-PC with power.

Folded upwards by 180 degrees, the chromed anti-slip pedestal can be used as a carrying handle. The practical VESA mounting surface on the back of the device enables it to be attached to monitor arms and wall mounts.

In the case of a warranty claim the purchaser of the Complete System can make use of the 24 month Pick-up-and-Return-Service and a Europe-wide free telephone hotline.
