Shuttle builds tiny Atomic ION-on PC

Maker of teeny PCs Shuttle, has come up with another tiddler. The 'ultra-compact' Shuttle X350 is just 1.5 inches thick and built around a dual-core Intel Atom D510 processor with on-board Intel graphics or an optional Nvidia ION and the optical drive of your choice.

The machine has its own "official" website for the US and A where it is on pre-order starting at $399.00.

“We’re really pushing the envelope as to what can be packed inside this tiny box we call the X350 or XS35 that’s only about the size of an external hard drive,” spouted Nicolas Villalobos, director at Shuttle Computer Group in Los Angeles. “It’s perfect for everything from living room entertainment to digital signage, healthcare, and point-of-sale applications. It’s even powerful enough for Blu-ray, though we do not officially have the option just yet.”

Shuttle says the internal layout has been 'meticulously engineered' to require no fan, so it’s not only quiet and low in energy consumption, but it’s also dust-free and virtually maintenance free.

It is definitely teeny-weeny.
