shuttle logoShuttle makes small computers. But up until now, most of those computers have been desktop PCs crammed into tiny boxes, barebones PC kits, and all-in-one computers. Now DigiTimes is suggesting that the company may be looking to get into the notebook business.

According to DigiTimes, Shuttle is trying to recruit 40 folks from ECS, a notebook maker that has put together some pretty nifty netbooks over the last year or so. While we’re still in the early rumor stages, and DigiTimes doesn’t really provide any quotes or, you know, confirmation of anything, I wouldn’t be surprised if Shuttle is looking at the netbook space. After all, what are netbooks but small computers?

  1. Until they started turning their SBB (small barebones) into glorified mini-towers, I was a big fan of Shuttle. In fact, my daily home PC is (still) an SB61G2 from them. I’d definitely consider them for my next netbook as long as they focus on size/aesthetics rather than cramming features into an ever-growing case…a standard Atom chassis is OK with me.

    1. Maybe I should have written: “Bread Box” rather than “Lunch Box”. . .
      I was more than a bit skeptical about their passive, liquid cooling idea. . .
      The cooling is doing its job just as intended, even with all 4 cores compiling. . .
      Evenings, it doubles as a media center – it earns its space on my bookshelf.

  2. They do have experience at “small”, it will be interesting to see
    what they come up with as a NetBook.
    I own one of their “lunch box” sized systems (SG33G5) and like it.

  3. Shuttle has come up with some interesting boxes in the past. I would like to see their take on a netbook, but I wonder about the pricing too.

  4. Shuttle already sells what amounts to nettops with the Atom (rather expensive nettops at that)…so the leap to netbooks is not that unexpected. But don’t be shocked if they are rather expensive as well.
