Shuttle shows off the DS437T, a new 192EUR (excl. VAT) barebone system that features a motherboard with a hard-wired Intel Celeron 1037U processor. The system is just 40mm thick and is cooled passively.
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, again shows its commitment to fanless solutions as
the Shuttle Barebone DS437T hits the shops today.
This 36 mm thin steel barebone comes already fitted with a hard-wired
Intel Celeron 1037U processor (dual-core, 2 MB cache, 1.80 GHz). The
DS437T's two SO-DIMM slots together support up to 16 GB DDR3 memory.
The SATA 6 GBit/s port offers rapid connection for 2.5" SSDs and hard
disks. With the easy-to-open back cover, it is simple to install
memory modules and a drive.
4x USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports are available for plugging in external
devices. Monitors can be connected via HDMI 1.3 and DVI-I, and the
DirectX 11.1-compatible Intel HD graphics integrated in the processor
enables dual monitoring. The Shuttle Barebone DS437T connects to
networks with its Gigabit Ethernet interface (wired) and also a
Wireless-LAN module is yet built in. A Trusted Platform Module (TPM)
can be connected to the motherboard via the LPC port, thereby
increasing data security.
"With the combination of computing power and fanless design, the
DS437T is ideal as a slim desktop PC alternative, thin client or media
player for large-screen displays," says Tom Seiffert, Head of
Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "The first DS47
version has already received an extremely positive response in these
areas from the trade press and buyers alike."
The DS437T is designed for energy-saving continuous operation,
although because of its convection cooling it has to stand upright
while running. Aluminium pedestals for upright operation come supplied
with the machine. The included VESA mount helps the DS437T which
barely measures 20 x 3.95 x 16.5 cm (DWH) hide behind monitors.
Installation in awkward positions is also possible, as it is provided
with a remote connection for an external power button.
Note: The DS437T is also available as an alternative version (DS437)
with Dual-Gigabit Ethernet, Mini-PCI Express and RS-232.
