In a year dominated by budget ultraportables and desktop-replacing laptops, it's easy to forget that there are plenty of users out there who are still looking for desktop and HTPC machines.  Shuttle have announced just the barebones system for them, the H7, small enough to fit neatly under a flatscreen for media PC duty, but compatible with AMD's latest Phenom AM2+ processors for when grunt is necessary.

Umm, lets see, what’s new, first off the X38 chipset which allows for the 1333MHz front side bus. There are 2 PCIe 2.0 x16 ports, meaning you can install a SLI setup if you wish.
