The latest such box is the SD39P2, which supports Intel's latest quad-core processors, up to 8GB of memory, two hard drives, and both PCI Express and PCI expansion cards—in a form factor the size of a toaster. The question, of course, is whether this latest toaster has the performance, features, and attention to detail that made Shuttle king of the small form factor. Read on to see what we found.
