Shuttle's X50V2 barebones all-in-one PC has had another refresh, with a new Atom processor to replace the previous model's D510. The updated Shuttle X50V2 Plus now packs Intel's 1.8GHz dual-core Atom D525, paired with GMA 3150 graphics and support for up to 4GB of DDR3 memory. Up front there's still the same 15.6-inch touchscreen running at 1366 x 768.
There's also a 2-megapixel webcam, stereo 2W speakers and a useful carry-handle (though with no battery you'll have to buy a long extension lead if you want to transport the X50V2 while it's powered on). Since it's provided as a barebones machine, as well as supplying RAM you'll need to slot in your choice of 2.5-inch SATA drive, too.
Ports include four USB 2.0, ethernet, a 4-in-1 memory card reader and audio in/out, while there's also integrated WiFi b/g/n and a spare miniPCIe card slot. No word on an official MRSP, but street pricing seems to have settled at around £280 ($462) for the black version.
