Shuttle KPC Desktop

Filed under

Hardware

Shuttle is best known for selling barebones and complete PC systems in compact packages. With its newest offering, the KPC ("Korporate PC"), something else is small: the price. A fully working PC can be yours for a remarkable $209.

The KPC uses Shuttle's own K45 chassis equipped with an Intel Celeron 430, a single-core, 1.8GHz Conroe-based processor with 512KB of L2 cache. Only 512MB of memory is included (though you can upgrade to a maximum of 2GB), an integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 handles the visuals, and an 80GB hard drive is on tap. Not top-of-the-line components by any stretch, but enough to run the preloaded Foresight Linux OS (or a copy of Windows XP you might have lying around). Shuttle says it may offer Windows preloaded as an option in the near future.

This version of Linux is a reasonable choice, and Shuttle preinstalls it with a "Windows-like" user interface that should feel familiar. It has also included OpenOffice.org, a productivity suite of applications that mimic what you'll find in Microsoft Office; and Mozilla's Firefox Web browser, a competent (and many say superior) rival to Internet Explorer.
