Back in February I talked a bit about the cool looking new Shuttle SG41J1 SFF PC aimed at gamers and media hounds. At the time, the little rig had just turned up in a PR for Shuttle Europe with nary a hint of a machine for the US. Shuttle now has the little rig on its US website.
It's been a while since Shuttle outed their XPC X50 Barebones all-in-one, and so it's about time that they updated it. Rather than rework the case and change the color, the new Shuttle X50V2 Barebone has Intel's latest Atom D510 processor, paired with the NM10 Express Chipset, but also gets completely passive cooling and halved power consumption.
Gigabyte's external-GPU BookTop M1305 and M1405 notebooks aren't the only machines relying on a separate graphics boost at CeBIT 2010 this week. Shuttle have brought along their interpretation, in the shape of the I-Power GXT Mini, a compact box fitted - in this case - with an ATI Radeon HD 4650 that hooks up to Shuttle netbooks via a special GXP port that looks a little like a larger HDMI port.

Shuttle is well known for making small form factor computers for use in the home or office. The tiny systems can be used for all manner of things from gaming to HTPC rigs taking up little space. Shuttle has announced its latest SFF PC called the XS35 that will be seen at CeBIT next month.
Black Friday is this week and it's one of the busiest shopping days of the year. Only the brave venture to retail stores and usually they are driven by the hope of landing a massive deal on some sort of high tech product like computers and HDTVs.
Here's some more all-in-one PC info for you, just in case you like that kind of thing. Shuttle has gone ahead and introduced a new version of their X500 line up, which still rocks that "ultra-thin" veneer. This time around, we've got a new OS for you, and it comes preloaded for your out-of-the-box using pleasure. It's a touchscreen too, so that has to count for something, considering that's all the rage right now, even for computers.
Another week has come and gone leaving us with memories and a hoard of cool stories to throw your way for weekend reading in case you missed them over the week. An Asus 900HA netbook was hacked into a touchscreen slate on Monday and we really liked it. DIY gear is so cool, especially when it turns out this good. Monday also brought some details on the Blackberry Storm 2 piezo touchscreen tech. We really hope its better than the original Storm.
Shuttle are best known for their small-form-factor (SFF) desktop PCs and barebone systems, but according to the latest rumors swirling around the unnamed "market sources" of Taipei they're considering branching out into netbooks. To do that, so DigiTimes suggest, they're not taking the arduous high-road of locking themselves in the lab and seeing what they can come up with, but instead are allegedly planning to poach a 40-strong team from rivals Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS).
