Small form factor PC designer Shuttle has just revealed the CarPC. Unlike its breadbox-sized desktops, the company's new chassis is specifically geared towards installations inside the often hot and narrow confines of cars. Only one small fan actively radiates heat; cooling fins around the majority of the case keep it cool under a seat or in the trunk. Power is also addressed with an intelligent system that runs the PC from the car's battery and safely turns off the system when the vehicle engine shuts down.
The base system will use a 1.83GHz Core Duo with Intel's dedicated graphics, DVI output, and 7.1-channel audio. Pricing and formal availability haven't been discussed. [via TweakTown]
