    Shuttle Inc., the market leader in the Mini-PC segment and manufacturer of Multi-Form-Factor solutions, is now shipping the All-in-One-PC X 5000TA that was shown at the Computex in Taipei as a barebone. Now users can decide for themselves which components should be installed in their All-in-One-PC.

    Now individualists can really get their money’s worth. With the Shuttle X50 Barebone the decision for HDD or SSD, 512 MB or 2 GB DDR2-memory is totally left to the purchaser of this little gem that is only 3.6 cm thin.

    Shuttle is delivering the barebone, available in both black or white, with an Intel Atom 330 dual-core processor (2x 1.6 GHz), 15.6" touchscreen, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, card reader, Gigabit-LAN, WLAN (Draft-N), stereo speakers, microphone and a fanless 65 Watt power supply.

    "The market introduction of the X50 Barebone has enabled customers to adapt Shuttle’s All-in-One-PC even more flexibly to their own requirements,” says Tom Seiffert, Head of Marketing & PR at Shuttle Computer Handels GmbH. “For sophisticated technical users it can be built in only a few steps."

    The detailed installation guide is a helpful tool for the installation of missing components or for upgrading the hard disk and memory. The operating system is then deployed via USB drive or via the network.

    The Shuttle X50 Barebone is available from specialist retailers from the end of June 2009. Shuttle's recommended retail price is EUR 361 (ex VAT).

    Wow. That looks like a great machine. Will it drive an external screen too? Now that would be a treat if it could. LINK to specs please :)

    And a great price too since it incl. the 15" touch screen and webcam. This is PERFECT for an email station, webbrowser and video-phone a la skype.

    But calling it a barebone is a bit misleading. After all, this is a fixed specification Atom 330, and you can just OPTION HDD or SDD and 512MB to 2GM RAM and OPTION a keyboard and mouse :laugh:

    Amazing, that phrase "is totally left to the purchaser": "like totally, totally like, know what I'm saying?". What a hotch-potch of vernaculars.

    Personally i wouldnt call it a barebone system. "WOAH MAKE YOUR OWN PC, CHOOSE EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO TAILOR IT FOR YOUR NEEDS!"
    Riiiiiight... A harddrive and maximum 2gb ram. OF YOUR OWN CHOOSING OMGWTFBBQ! Just stupid.
    And an intel GMA 950? Yuck.

    I looked at the spec's for this X50 product and I am disappointed cons the graphics chip is outdated. The graphics chip is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 (GMA950). It should have been the GMA 3000 or the newer 4500MHD.
