- More new Shuttle XPC action


Shuttle let us know about their newest small form factor XPC called SB65G2 which comes in black with built-in 802.11b wireless support. Like the SB62G2 which was announced last week, the new model will be based on Intel's Springdale chipset with 800MHz FSB and dual-channel DDR-400 memory. This XPC will be launched later this month during Computex.


I have uploaded two PDF press release files concerning this product to our server - download them here and here.



- Re-badged Shuttle XPC from Creative?


While on the topic of small form factor computers, during surfing the old World Wide Web we noticed a new product from Creative Labs called SLiX which has remarkable resemblance to Shuttle's line of XPC products.


We aren't sure if Shuttle are making these new units for Creative or not. Though we will endevour to find out exactly what the story is over the next day or so and report back.



Introducing a whole new paradigm of building your own PC - the Creative SLiX "barebone" concept! It is a basic PC building block that comes with a sleek aluminum casing, motherboard and power supply. Ultra compact and lightweight, SLiX is easily transportable and fits right into any modern setting without cramping one's style. What's more, it is packed with loads of cool features such as USB2.0, IEEE 1394, onboard LAN, 6 channel audio and integrated 3D graphics engine, all for your ultimate digital entertainment experience.
