The folks from Shuttle have been sending pictures of this nifty new "bare bones" system called the SV24. It's the enclosure, plus an everything-integrated motherboard and a power supply. Check it out:
It's based on the VIA PL133 chipset, and it's ready to accept a Socket 370 CPU. Full specs are available right here. Obviously, this isn't going to be an all-out performance PC, but it should make for very slick little general-use system.
I told myself I would stick to the focuswhich for me is reviewing new CPUs and ASICsbut when the Shuttle folks mailed offering one for review, I melted. We should have a review unit here soon. I couldn't help but think what a great first computer this thing would make for Jr. Damage. I have a no-fans-required VIA C3 processor (review pending) that would be a perfect match for this enclosure. With a DVD drive and this box's integrated composite TV out, it could be an ideal living-room PC, too. Or I may stick in a new 1.1GHz Celeron, just so I know it'll outrun a Mac cube.
