    Shuttle, specialist with small form-factor PCs, is planning to release one with an even smaller footprint, the X27. Shuttle says the new PC will use as little as 23 W in idle mode, and 36 W on load. That's takes it more into the power consumption domain of some business-class laptops. The X27 falls into the 'Nettop' category of low-cost desktop PCs, and uses the Intel Atom low-power processor. It also has a tiny acoustic footprint at a mere 23 decibels, that's -- quieter than a "bedroom at night" (late night), according to decibel noise charts, reports Smart Planet.

    The low noise is matched by a suitably small case which measures 10 inches long, 7 inches wide and 2.75 inches tall; about the same size as Asus' Eee Box. Pricing and availability are yet to be disclosed. Detailed specifications are provided:

    Looks interesting. It has enough outputs to work as well (DVI to HDMI adaptors allowing TV use, for example)

    my only question... wtf is that thing next to the PC in the middle pic? (on the right)

    It's a tie. Just to show you the PC's size in comparison to common objects such as a tie, a mouse, a watch....

    Yes, Sir.

    Added details. It's not common that we stick to sources, you've been reading my posts for a while now.

    I think the question that really needs to be asked is, what the hell is it sitting on? It looks like a snake skin desk or something.
