Shuttle prices, specs up KPC Linux box

03/16, 11:35am

Shuttle KPC

Shuttle without fanfare has rolled out the finished version of the KPC, its first Linux system targeted at the most basic of computer use. The small form factor box lowers the cost of the PC maker's normally gaming-focused systems in part by switching to Foresight Linux: without the cost of a Windows license, only the hardware affects the price. The low-demand operating system also reduces the need for faster components and allows Shuttle to run its OS well with just a 1.8GHz Celeron, 512MB of RAM, integrated graphics, and an 80GB hard drive; Shuttle also saves money by stripping out the optical drive but replaces it with Wi-Fi for wireless out of the box.
