Shuttle - the LAN party enthusiasts' best friend. While it's LAN-friendly XPC line is always a fan favorite, Shuttle has begun to diversify into several different PC segments.
The new XS35 exemplifies that diversity. This Wii-sized nettop PC has the new dual-core D510 from Intel, 2 GB of DDR2 memory, and if the integrated graphics aren't your cup of joe, a GeForce 9400 from Nvidia. The XS35 also supports a VESA mount, making it the perfect companion to your HDTV or home theater setup.
If all you care about is a new LAN box, then Shuttle hears you. The new J series looks like XPCs of old on the outside, but there is a vast departure on the inside. While the J series can still use the Shuttle brand motherboards many gamers know and love, they can also use standard mini-ITX motherboards as well. The J series is split into three models; the entry-level SG41J1 supports Intel Core 2 Duo/Quad and has X4500 graphics on board. If Core i3/i5 is what you desire, then the SH55J2 should do quite nicely. And for the hardcore gamer on the go, the SX58J3 uses an X58 motherboard with Core i7 CPUs, as well as support for ATI CrossFireX and Nvidia SLI graphics configurations. Unfortunately, the case isn't large enough to support a Radeon 5890.
Shuttle also has some new All-In-One models on display, including the X50 v2. This AIO is very similar to the XS35 (Intel D510, integrated GPU), but the built-in screen, optical drive and carrying handle make it an attractive option for those who want a secondary PC in the kitchen or family room.
Believe me when I say this isn't it for Shuttle. There are some big announcements coming tomorrow. If you're interested in notebooks or motherboards, you might want to check in tomorrow afternoon...
