It wasn't too long ago when if you wanted a compact computer you either had to make it yourself or sacrifice performance for size. It only took one company around about 18 months ago to decide that this wasn't good enough and that company was Shuttle. Thanks to this Taiwanese based company, we now have that little guy (XPC) packing just as big a punch as people with full sized, 30kg systems.

This is the third Shuttle XPC we have had a chance to look at and the other two far from disappointed us. So as soon as we saw one coming with wireless LAN support and the lovely Springdale chipset we couldn't help but get excited over it.

Let's see what this small black beast has under its hood and now it competes against one of the fastest Intel Pentium 4 based motherboards on the market today.
