Shuttle's Korporate Perfect Cube (KPC) Hits The Street
When it’s your job to review new PC hardware, it’s easy to get caught up in the cutting edge of technology. We see and evaluate some of the world’s newest computer components on a daily basis, and usually "newer" is synonymous with faster, stronger, and more power-hungry.
However, not everyone requires the fastest hardware; some folks have never touched a PC game, and there are tons of people out there who don’t use their PCs to convert video files. Many PC users just want to edit documents, surf the Internet, and maybe look at their digital photographs. For these people, a quad-core CPU and dual-videocard setup is grotesque overkill.
It is for these folks that Shuttle introduced the KPC, which stands for "Korporate Personal Computer". The KPC is not a powerhouse - it is a basic personal computer that will perform all of the every-day tasks you need, while having a minimal effect on both your electricity bill and your finances.
In fact, Shuttle’s main marketing drive behind the KPC underlines four strengths; it aims to be user-friendly, customizable, expandable, and green. With Shuttle now delivering the KPC in limited numbers as a barebones or complete system, we decided to see if it can deliver on these features as promised.
