Tech-Report takes a look at the Shuttle mini-barebones system. Right now these computers are practically useless for gaming, or any other applications outside of simple internet browsing or office work. I know they look great, and seem really cool, but you are much, much better off waiting for the versions with an AGP slot (or perhaps the nForce 2 chipset).
Shuttle won't be sending us one of the new nForce 2 based barebones because our review of the SS50 wasn't "positive enough" for one of their marketing guys... So have a look around and pay special attention to the benchmarks - or lack of benchmarks in the reviews as they come out.
"Of course, while all this had the Intel lovers beaming, AMD fans were clamoring for a cube computer of their own. Shuttle has answered those requests with the system we're looking at today, the SS40G. Though the concept between the SS50 and the SS40G is the same, the SS40G sports an updated, sleeker look, and cracking open the top reveals further differences, among them a fascinating new heatsink design. Has Shuttle hit another home run? Read on to find out."
