"It's been a while since Shuttle outed their XPC X50 Barebones all-in-one, and so it's about time that they updated it. Rather than rework the case and change the color, the new Shuttle X50V2 Barebone has Intel's latest Atom D510 processor, paired with the NM10 Express Chipset, but also gets completely passive cooling and halved power consumption."
I like the idea of these all in one touchscreen PC's but I just have no idea where I would use one, except perhaps in the kitchen as media streamer. Either way, there must be a market for them as Shuttle have upgraded the X50 with the X50V2. It's the same case with a new CPU, increased memory capacity, more ports, and it is fanless making it virtually silent. The price of $484 (pre-tax) is a little high considering you still need to add memory and a hard drive in to it, however I guess you're paying for the convenience of a nice small, all in one unit. So do you have or want a PC like this? I'm interested to know what and where you would use it in your home.
