Shuttle’s New All-in-One PC Arrives

Description

Shuttle, makers of small form factor computers and accessories, have just introduced the latest addition to their product line, the Shuttle X50, a new all-in-one PC. The X50 integrates touch into its design, letting you interact with it via either a finger or the included stylus. It also has a carrying handle for moving the PC around with ease. The handle can be removed for wall mounting.

The X50 is only 1.4 inches wide and includes a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam, 15.6” touchscreen, Intel's Atom 330 dual-core processor, 1GB of system memory, a 160GB hard drive, Intel GMA950 graphics, and I/O ports on the two sides. It runs Windows XP Home Edition.

I don’t see any pricing info yet, but at CES it was rumored to be around $500. At that price, this “netbook of PCs” looks like an attractive option for that extra home PC be it in the kitchen, kid’s room or wherever.

    The styling is perfect for a kitchen environment.  Although I think you'll probably also want to get a small usb wifi adapter.  This is something between a Digital Picture Frame and a full fledge Laptop.  What Microsoft needs to do with Windows 7....

    1. Make sure the Windows 7 Netbook version include Touch...there is some question as if that support will be there or not.
    2. Price Windows 7 Netbook accordingly to devices in this category.
    3. Finally....something we haven't seen from Microsoft in Windows 7 builds is a touchscreen dashboard.  Some of the benefits of Microsoft's Origami UI and HP's TouchSmart.  I think it will be critical to provide something like this.  Some may think Media Center is sufficient.  Unfortunately you can't write scribble/wallboard type apps for Media Center (at least that I'm aware).  Please Microsoft, assign a group to deliver this capability when Windows 7 ships..it can even be a Windows Live App that sync's to the cloud.  Wink
