Shuttle is offering its first low-power, fanless mini-desktops powered by Intel Celeron J1900 Bay Trail processors.
Both are sold as barebones computers, which means you’ll need to supply your own storage, memory, and operating system.
The computers features Intel’s 10W, 64-bit, 2 GHz quad-core processor based on the same technology as the company’s Atom chips for tablets and notebooks. The J1900 is one of the more powerful members of the Bay Trail family, but it still doesn’t generate a lot of heat, which is why Shuttle can put it into a system that uses passive cooling instead of a noisy fan.
The Shuttle XS35V4 features Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n WiFi, a 2.5 inch drive bay, an SD card reader, HDMI, DisplayPort, and audio jacks and 4 USB 2.0 ports and a USB 3.0 port. It has a slim optical drive bay and a mini PCI Express card slot which is used by the WiFi card. The case measures 9.9″ x 6.4″ x 1.5″.
Shuttle’s XS36V4 is a little smaller, measuring 7.9″ x 6.3″ x 1.4″. This model is designed as a digital signage player and it features serial ports and no bay for a DVD, CD, or Blu-ray drive. But otherwise the specs are largely the same as those for the XS35V4.
