Shuttle Inc., a leading
developer and manufacturer of multi-form-factor solutions such as the
world-famous XPC Mini-PC-Barebones, will be unveiling at this year's
CeBIT in Hanover a new, ultra-compact PC platform which, at just 3.3
cm wide, is already HD-compatible.
The Shuttle Barebone XS35 is a Mini-PC in the 1-litre class which,
thanks to its shape and the standardised VESA mounting interface, can
be easily fitted behind flat panel displays and therefore does not
take up any space. Intel's Atom D510 Dual Core Processor (2x 1.66 GHz)
and the NM10 Express Chipset serve as the energy-saving hardware
platform. A high-performance NVIDIA GT218 (ION2) graphics card
provides streaming 3D and video playback. The HDMI connector allows
for excellent sound and picture quality and connects the device to
modern flat panel displays and large televisions easily.
Other practical connectors include 5x USB, VGA, LAN and Audio. Housed
in the small case are a multi-format card reader, a 2.5" hard disk and
an optical slimline drive. For added security, it can also be
protected against theft using a Kensington lock. The XS35 is passively
cooled and therefore practically noiseless - ideal for home use, too.
This innovation will also be on display at this year's CeBIT. The
Shuttle trade fair stand is located in Hall 17, Stand G68.
The new Shuttle Barebone XS35 will be available in stores in the
second quarter of 2010. The recommended retail price has not yet been
