That's probably true. Shuttle puts non conforming boards in their boxes. Just like some old early IBM systems, so you have to buy from them. When I worked at IBM about twenty years ago, I bought a refurbished 486 system for the employee price of $899. The board had a bad mouse port, so I sent it back in, and it took over two weeks for a replacement system. I vowed to build my own from then on.
thanks for that. one would have thought that there would be another board that would fit into this unit. surely i cant be the first person that has wanted to do this. ahhh well, i guess i'll have to get rid of the shuttle and build a tower from scratch. i liked the shuttle because of its size. to buy a new shuttle, its too much for me.
