Although tiny laptops and strange photo shoots stole the show at Computex last week, Shuttle had some shiny new products sitting in its booth. The small-form-factor desktop PC maker succumbed to the Atom craze with the X27: a Mini-ITX desktop that will pack a 1.6GHz Atom processor, a 945GC chipset, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM, Gigabit Ethernet, and one PCI slot. According to Shuttle, the X27 is "the first of its all-new X Series based on the slim chassis predecessor." That predecessor is none other than the Mac-mini-like X100, which Shuttle first showed two years ago at Computex 2006.
Shuttle also displayed the XP19, its latest LCD monitor for LAN party goers and the like. The XP19 has a 19" panel with a 1680 x 1050 resolution—denser than usual for a monitor that size—and optional touch screen functionality. Shuttle says the panels has a 5-ms response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and brightness of 300 cd/m².
Other residents of the Shuttle booth included the D10, a classic Shuttle small-form-factor with a touch screen built into the front bezel, as well as a new range of more conventional SFF systems with new Nvidia and Intel chipsets. Check out Shuttle's press release for more details.
