Shuttle X27D

 

If you need a small system at a small price, Shuttle's X27D is better equipped than some we've seen, but its performance still reflects its value status.

Very inexpensive; includes optical drive

Limited performance; nonexistent expansion room

During the basic tasks for which it's intended—surfing the Web, e-mailing, typing, and the like—the Shuttle holds its own. That's undoubtedly enough for very light computer users or those who don't need a ton of power and don't want to clutter up their...

Shuttle's X27: Can Atom Handle Vista

 

In the horsepower race between Intel's and AMD's quad-core chips, the Atom processor is an everyday hybrid. Shuttle took it and created a ...

Shuttle X27D review

 

Just like the Hoover for vacuum cleaning and Tannoy for speakers, Shuttle has become almost synonymous with small form-factor PCs.

The Shuttle X27D is available at an attractive entry-level price, but once optical and hard drives and a useful amount of RAM are fitted, it can be easily beaten in value by better performing systems, such as the Advent Eco PC at around the same price....

Shuttle X27D review

 

Shuttle's X27D is a smart-looking barebones PC with a built-in Intel Atom processor. It measures just 70x185x250mm, which is ideal if you need a very compact PC. The power supply is external, however, and so will add to the clutter under your desk.

Shuttle x27D review

 

The x27D is, at the time of writing, the fastest nettop-style machine we've ever tested. Its dual-core Atom 330 CPU makes it a far more robust solution than PCs such as the Eee Box. It's a little too noisy for our liking, but it's affordable,...

Dual-core Atom 330 CPU ; Cute design

Noisy ; Rubbish graphics

Shuttle puts a dual-core Intel Atom into one of its smallest chassis to create the Shuttle X27D.

A system that muddies the waters between low-end and regular PCs

Expert review by:

Shuttle X27D

 

Shuttle updates the Atom processor in its X27 to deliver dual-core goodness. So when will it sort out the graphics?

Shuttle has done its best with Atom 330 and has left prices unchanged but it is severely hampered by the Intel 945GC chipset. As things stand, we're neutral on Atom for the desktop but we look forward to the next chapter in this story.

A tiny, low-power barebones system with a dual-core Atom inside. Darien Graham-Smith gets building.
