SlashGear Week in Review – Week 35 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 35 2009

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 planning netbook with poached ECS team?

Shuttle planning netbook with poached ECS team?

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).

VIA and Shuttle have put together the latter's first SSF (small form factor) PC based on the former's Nano processor.  The Shuttle XS29F pairs the Nano U1700 CPU with VIA's VX800 media system processor, meaning that unlike many nettops the XS29F has both VGA and DVI Dual video outputs.

CES may have been less well attended than last year, but it was still big enough that many stands went ungraced by the SlashGear team.  One I wish we'd called by was Shuttle's, who were showing off their X50 All-in-One nettop.  As has been pointed out, it's a direct rival to the ASUS Eee Top, only instead of that model's N270 processor the X50 rocks a 1.6GHz dual-core Atom 330 CPU.

Intel Atom 330 dual-core benchmarks less impressive than expected

Intel Atom 330 dual-core benchmarks less impressive than expected

Intel's Atom 330 is most definitely intended for the nettop, not the netbook, market, we're told, and so hopes were high that the latest super-efficient chip would offer a pleasing boost of dual-core performance what with battery concerns no longer an issue.  PC Pro brought a Shuttle barebones - I'm guessing the X27D - based on the Atom 330 in from the cold and proceeded to benchmark it against not only the single-core Atom N270 but a 2GHz VIA C7-D system too.  The results were, to be blunt, mildly disappointing.
