Tech Link (MoDT): Shuttle XPC X100 (Core Duo)

A pretty nifty systems is up on the testbench over at HardwareZone. And since this is armed with an Intel® Core™ Duo processor (aka Yonah, aka new Apple* processor), you can expect great turn out of performance for such a system. This little baby packs a whooping performance per watt, very very very nice for office and productivity and even good for gaming too since it is armed with an ATi Mobility Radeon X1400. The only problem I can see with this baby is a measly 512MB RAM (2x256MB DDR2-533 SODIMM), but that can be remedied (but SODIMM is pricey) if you have the moolah. Give it a spin and expand this posting.

Ever since the PC started encroaching into the living room space with the convergence of digital media and broadband, we have all been waiting for its Holy Grail - that perfect blend of style and performance which acts as the indispensable hub of your home entertainment system. Parallel developments like Microsoft launching its Windows XP Media Center Edition and the rise of AMD to challenge Intel in the processor arena in terms of cheaper and cooler chips have helped to drive this trend.
