Shuttle Inc, a leading developer and manufacturer of
multi-form-factor solutions such as the XPC Mini-PC Barebones, today
announces the XPC Barebone SG41J1 in Europe. The first offspring of
the J-series is the pioneer of different other Mini-PCs to be
introduced in the upcoming weeks.
The chassis of the XPC Barebone SG41J1 is almost re-signed from
scratch. Developed for most versatile use, the SG41J1 maintains the
advantages of previous XPC models while incorporating many
improvements. The J-series represents the next step in the evolution
of Shuttle Mini-PCs that has begun in 2001.
For the first time models of the J-series also support the mini-ITX
standard allowing for easy future upgrades. The cooling system
includes linear controlled fans, large ventilation holes and improved
airflow inside the chassis. As a result, even high-performance
components such as a dual-slot graphics card, Intel Core 2 multi-core
processors and up to 8GB of DDR2-memory can be fitted. Pre-routed
cables facilitate the setup. There is also Kensington lock present at
the back of the case for enhanced security. A completely new front
design with a decently lit XPC logo makes the SG41J1 easily
The XPC Barebone SG41J1 is based on Intel’s G41 Express chipset and
includes a DirectX 10 Intel GMA X4500 GPU with a DVI-port. It also
sports an array of USB 2.0, PS/2, parallel and serial ports. One
PCI-Express x16 slot and one 32bit PCI slot are available for further
expansion. The system is powered by a 250 Watt power supply.
