Shuttle shouts up Vista-friendly SFF PCs
Small form-factor PC specialist Shuttle hopped on the Windows Vista bandwagon with a trio of pre-configured systems that bundle Microsoft's latest offering. Shuttle said all three are compatible with Vista's Aero UI.
The three Shuttles ship with 32-bit editions of Vista. Interestingly, two of the three, the XPC P2 3700GC and the XPC G5 3200HC have an identical specification, at least according to Shuttle's announcement today. They both have a Core 2 Duo E6300 CPU, 1GB of DDR 2 memory, a 250GB SATA hard drive, an Nvidia GeForce 7600 GT graphics card, Gigabit Ethernet, 22-in-one memory card reader and a dual-layer DVD writer. Both models ship with Vista Home Premium. The difference lies in the casing.
The other model, the XPC G2 3200BB, has much the same spec, except the processor is a Celeron D 352, the graphics engine is an integrated Intel GMA950, the hard drive's only an 80GB model, it ships with a DVD-ROM drive and comes bundled with Vista Business.
