Corsair is making a play for the living room, by revealing a barebones PC kit that could compete with consoles. The Bulldog consists of an angular case complete with a mini-ITX motherboard, a 600-watt power supply from SFX, and liquid CPU cooler, with the user expected to select and install their own selection of components in order to make their own gaming system, one that could provide more content to an attached 4K television.
PC case manufacturer Shuttle has used CeBit to show off an extremely small computer it unveiled late last month. The DS81 measures 19x16.5x4.3cm (7.4x6.5x1.7 inches), marginally larger than the Intel NUC and roughly the same size as a standard DVD drive, and can be used with a VESA mount to be hidden behind a monitor, with the Intel H81 Express chipset motherboard inside capable of accommodating a 65W Intel Core i7 Haswell processor.
Shuttle has unveiled two new slim desktops in its extensive XPS range. Measuring less than 10 inches long, just over 6 inches wide, and 1.5 inches in height, the XS35GTA V3 and XS35V3 barebones PCs notably have optional VESA mounting kits for attachment to the back of monitors; this can be used to keep a computer off a desk or the floor.
