Awww man, I’ve been coveting Shuttle PCs for a while now in my very poor attempts to assemble a media center PC, and now they just bait me by coming right out with a genuine media PC form factor.
Specs don’t look too nasty either, with a Pentium M chip, NVidia 6600LE graphics card, and integrated dual-tuner card. Wireless keyboard and remote are included too.
However if other Shuttle prices are anything to go by, you’ll be paying a premium for the integrated experience. There’s no doubt you could build a similar machine for cheaper, but I doubt it will fit together as smoothly as this puppy.
AOpen have announced price details and shipping date for their cool little Mac Mini clone based around a Pentium-M processor and Intel 915G chipset. This thing would make a killer entertainment PC, as long as the graphics are up to task.
The Pandora will be sold as a complete system, according to a note from the OEM that was sent to reporters this week. The Pandora will sell for an estimated price of $499 for a Windows-based configuration, and $399 for one configured around Linux. Systems will be available by Christmas, the company said.
