Shuttle intros X200 mini-PC, revives Mac mini fight

Shuttle X200 Mini-PC

Small form factor PC maker Shuttle today revealed the X200. A more media-centric design than the earlier X100 model, the new version drops the dedicated graphics, FireWire, and S-video support of the old model in exchange for features that compete more directly with the Front Row features of Apple's Mac mini, which Shuttle has previously denounced in side-by-side comparisons. The X200 gains built-in 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi as well as a hybrid digital and analog TV tuner; an FM radio tuner is also part of the package, Shuttle says.

The company has yet to confirm every detail of its new PC, but promises that the added media hardware does not detract from the processor performance or size: the system will still support the 2GHz Core 2 Duo option of the X100 and will share the same 2-inch-high casing. Pricing has not been revealed, but Shuttle anticipates shipping the X200 this month.

    So what

    Problem here is I really don't care what gadgets they put in there or how fast it is. There will always be one big problem, IT RUNS WINDOWS. So for that reason I will never buy one.

    Agree with you there, lee. If they'd loaded it up with a tweaked, user-friendly Linux then I might be interested, and even then I doubt it would work half as well as an honest-to-goodness Mac.
