Continuing our look at specialty computer enclosures, we've been given the opportunity by www.computernerd.com to review the Shuttle SS40G. It's much more than just an aluminum case and you might even call it a cube (well, almost a cube). In reality, it is the first mini-barebones system that can handle the newer AMD line of CPU's including the AthlonXP's as stated on the box says, so of course we're going to test it with an AthlonXP-1700+ just to be on the safe side.
One look at the Shuttle SS40G will conjure up all kinds of ideas as to its potential use. I was struck with the idea that this would make an ideal second computer, especially where available space is at a minimum and fancy features found in high-powered systems are not a necessity.
