Shuttle has taken a short break from its laptop imitative and XPS barebones to introduce the XS35, a diminutive nettop outfitted with a dual-core Atom processor and next-generation Ion discrete graphics. The company put out an official announcement late last week, and Fudzilla has now grabbed some images of the system in Shuttle's CeBIT booth.
The XS35 measures a scant 1.3" x 9.9" x 6" and features an Atom D510 processor, an Intel NM10 I/O hub, a next-gen Nvidia Ion GPU with 512MB of dedicated DDR3 RAM, one DDR2-800 SO-DIMM memory slot, support for a 2.5" hard drive or SSD, and a built-in DVD burner. Connectivity ranges from HDMI and VGA to Ethernet and USB, and there's even a card reader. Neither Fudzilla nor Shuttle mention Wi-Fi, though.
In spite of the discrete GPU, Shuttle claims its new nettop has entirely passive cooling that makes it "practically noiseless." Additionally, a "standardised VESA mounting interface" lets you strap the device behind a PC monitor.
In many ways, this Shuttle contraption looks similar to the Zotac ZBox HD-ID11 we wrote about yesterday. That system has similar specs but with Wi-Fi and no optical drive; Zotac will charge $209.99 for it.
