Shuttle X50 due out on the end of the month
by Mark R
Shuttle has recently unveiled the X50, an all-in-one touchscreen nettop. I’m not really even certain what a nettop is, but this one looks like it could become quite popular.
The thing that makes me want to buy it is the “lunchbox” handle on top, which just screams portability. The screen is a big 15.6 inch (1,336 x 768 resolution), and all the applications on its Windows XP Home operating system can be accessed with a fingertip or stylus.
The computer is 1.4 inches thick, and comes with WiFi b/g/n, of course. Other features include an Atom 330 processor, 1GB of RAM, plus a 160GB hard drive. The X-50 also has a 1.3 megapixel webcam, as well as ezCam software. It also comes with a 4-in-1 memory card reader, VGA output, audio in and out, and five USB ports. The big thing is that it is powered by an Intel Atom 330 dual-core processor.
Maybe I am new to this whole All-in-one PC nettop thing, but I don’t see any keyboard on this thing. I suppose you could attach one via USB, but maybe there is a possibility of using the touchscreen of a keyboard.
Interested in the X50? You will have to wait until the end of the month to get it, for a price of about $499.
