    Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH, European subsidiary of Shuttle Inc., one of the leading developers and manufacturers of compact PC solutions such as the world-renowned XPC Mini PC Barebones today announces the sales launch of Version 2 of its XS35 product line.

    Just as its predecessor, the new generation of XS35 models is built around energy-saving components and runs virtually silently. The new XS35 series does away with any fans and remains nearly inaudible at any time which predestines such space-saving PCs use in the living room at home, in the office, classrooms and even in libraries. The energy-efficient Intel Atom D525 processor provides sufficient power for all daily computing applications. While the basic version, XS35V2, comes with integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics, the XS35GTV2 barebone is equipped with NVIDIA’s Next-Generation ION graphics solution that even allows for playback of full HD content at 1080p.

    The V2 models of Shuttle’s first slimline PC series is available as of now from specialist retailers across Europe. Buyers can also expect a faster Intel D525 processor and enhanced memory support of now up to 4 GB DDR3. Both V2 models now connect with a Gigabit-LAN interface to networks or alternatively use the built-in wireless LAN. During whisper-quiet operation, power consumption remains permanently low.



    "With the new model we’re banking on the proven and further improved which had already been good", says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. "But basically every XS35 model is fanless and offers 5x USB, WLAN, LAN, sound, card reader and Kensington Lock."

    So it's fan less but why is it only nearly inaudible ? HDD ?. To be honest if i was to get one it would have a fan.

    1920x1080 though a D plug ?. Really think it should of at least had a DVI
     
    xaira and Completely Bonkers say thanks.

    Dsub? LOL. Where is the DVI? And unfortunately isn't this Intel chipset handicapped in output resolution. So you might just be able to do "HD" resolutions, but regular minimum desktop of 1600x1200, 1920x1200 or 2560x1440 which is now becoming the norm will not be possible.

    And why a power brick? Stick it IN THE CASE just like the Apple mini.

    Have to say the Apple mini is far superior to this (wow, that was a difficult thing for me to say!)... just bootcamp it for a proper OS.

    IMO there is no need for the CD drive. That is so 1990s. They should make the footprint smaller, include the Powersupply into the case, and have an EXTERNAL CD/DVD drive via USB just like a laptop/netbook.

    Notice also that is need to be on that perch-stand thing to cool properly. Lie it down on a desk rather than upright-like-an-accident-waiting-to-happen and it probably won't be cool enough. How do I know? I run the same chipset from Supermico in a 1UE rackmount as my miniserver, and it is only cool enough because of the 19" metal rack case that acts a giant cooler.

    If they did that, then i dont think the solution would remain 'fanless' for long. if not then the GPU would have to be seriously underclocked to keep the temperature down, and at them clocks it would probably be useless for any sort of gaming anyway

    Seems like it's missing some features like DVI, too bad as it was looking like a decent htpc.

    The mini is better, but more than twice the price.

    And I've read somewhere that the resolution gimping is software. You can get 1920x1200 in Linux it would seem.

    My bad for using D when there is a DVI-D lol. I like the fact it has the power block not built into it as it means it be much easier to replace.

    OK, just to clarify, the GTV2 version uses the ION chipset and has HDMI socket, so with a HDMI to DVI dongle it should be able to drive a larger display.
