Tech Link (MoDT): Shuttle X100 ultra-small media PC

When Chipzilla announced their latest products at CES, more and more exciting devices and appliance are being released. Most of these are geared for Digital Home and have very small footprint. One such device is the new Shuttle X100 ultra-small media PC*. Not only does it has great looks, but this small baby is packed with a very powerful Intel® Core™ Duo Processor. It's got great graphics because of ATI's Mobility Radeon X1600 onboard graphics accelerator with DVI/TV out, and multi-channel digital audio with SPDIF.

So, what do you think? A removeable drive? No, it's the actual Shuttle X100 ultra-small media PC, a step into the future for sure and a definite indication of how a media PC could look when it finally makes the move into your living room.

The XPC X100 is around the size of a compact scanner. Equipped with Intel's latest Core Duo mobile processor, ATI's Mobility Radeon X1600 onboard graphics accelerator with DVI/TV out and multi-channel digital audio with SPDIF, the XPC System X100 will certainly offer great performance. In addition, this preliminary specification also features a 250GB hard drive, 512MB of dual-channel DDR 2 SDRAM, Gigabit LAN, Wireless LAN, a four-in-one card reader, 4x USB ports and Firewire.

It might not be the most attractive of designs, but it's sure to catch the eye when it goes on display at the CeBIT show next month.

No release dates or prices are available from the company at present.
