[ad#content_main]We took some time to stop by the Shuttle booth this year at CES. It was very exciting booth, Shuttle’s theme this year was a solution for every application and it seemed like they had something for every computing application you could think of. Let’s take a look at some of the more interesting Shuttle systems we saw this year.
Using a computer for home entertainment keep on getting more popular and Shuttle has a great system for your home entertainment needs, the D4500. The thing that really sets this system off is the 7-inch touch screen LCD on the front of it. This allows you to scroll through movies, check e-mail, and do other activities without disrupting the media that is playing on the TV or large LCD you have this system connected to. The system on display featured an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of DDR2, 80GB hard drive, Blu-ray drive, Intel GMA X4500HD graphics, 7.1 channel HD audio, and a 250W power supply.
On the gaming side of things Shuttle had the SDXI Carbon on display. This system features an Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650 processor, 4GB of DDR2 memory, 150GB hard drive (10,000 RPM), Blu-ray drive, nVidia GeForce GTX295 video card, 7.1 channel HD audio, and 300W 80 PLUS PSU. Also Shuttle is using their Liquid I.C.E. cooling system on the SDXI Carbon. It is all inside a very cool painted case with a side window.
Now don’t think that Shuttle has not made the step to the Core i7 platform. Their H9 5800 system features an Intel Core i7 965 Extreme processor, 4GB of DDR3, 150GB hard drive, DVD drive, GeForce 9800GT, 7.1 channel HD audio, and a 80 PLUS power supply. Shuttle was showing this system with one of their LCD’s, they are very sleek.
You really didn’t think we could cover Shuttle and they would not have an all-in-one solution on display. The X50 All-in-One is of course based on the Intel Atom processor, but unlike many of the ones we have seen at this show it runs a dual core Atom processor. It also features an 80GB hard drive, 1GB of DDR2 memory, 5.1 channel HD audio, 1.3 megapixel webcam, and a 15.6-inch touch panel. It will run Windows XP professional.
