Shuttle launches D10 PC
Shuttle Japan launched its D10 mini PC on Friday, which is claimed as one of the few small form factor PCs to include a built-in 7-inch, 800x480 LCD touchscreen. The D10 can be optioned up with a choice of Intel's dual-core chips, ranging from E2000-series chips to the E4000 range, as well as the Celeron 400 series. Standard issue virtual memory is fixed at 2GB, but can be expanded up to 4GB.
The Shuttle D10 handles 5.1-channel surround sound audio support, while graphics are taken care of by the integrated Intel GMA 3100 video processor. The PC has one expansion slot, and four USB ports on the back panel for connecting peripherals. A VGA port for the addition of a full-size monitor, FireWire port and sound connections round out the back panel's hook ups.
The Shuttle D10 is expected to cost the equivalent of about $470 for a basic version of the system.
