Shuttle has been making small form-factor PCs and computer cases for over a decade, long before the small computers like the Mac Mini and Raspberry Pi hit the streets. Now Shuttle is updating its line of mini computers with its first model featuring an Intel Broadwell processor.

The Shuttle DS57U is a fanless computer that measures 7.9″ x 6.5″ x 1.6″ and which packs a 15 watt processor based on Intel’s 5th-gen Intel Core technology. It’s a barebones system designed for commercial applications such as digital signage, kiosks, or point-of-sales systems, but you could also use it as a home or office PC.

Shuttle will offer models with a choice of Intel Celeron, Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors. Each model has dual Gigabit Ethernet ports, HDMI and DisplayPort, two USB 3.0 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, two serial ports, and an SD card reader.

There are mic and line jacks, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, two SODIMM slots for up to 16GB of RAM, and a 2.5 inch SATA III drive bay for a hard drive or solid state drive as well as a full-sized mini PCIE slot with mSATA support and a half-sized mini PCIE jack.

Shuttle sells this computer without memory, storage, or an operating system, but it should support Windows 7 or later or Linux.

The system is launching initially in Europe, where it has a suggested retail price of 192 Euros, which is about $217 US.

  1. I like the idea of the 2.5″ bay sitting next to the board. I wish Intel used this form factor on the NUC.

    1. Appears the board runs full width. The 2.5″ bay is actually above one half of the board. Nice layout though.

  2. “Shuttle will offer models with a choice of Intel Celeron, Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors.”

    This fanless model has the Celeron 3205SU. I don’t understand how those Core ix CPUs can possibly be fanless in this chassis.

    1. We’re talking Core i3 / i5 / i7 from the U-series, with the the same 15W TDP 😉

  3. “Shuttle will offer models with a choice of Intel Celeron, Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 processors.”

    Where does the above information come from? Certainly not from the DS57U press text. Shuttle’s past Core-i barebones were not designed for fanless operation and used different chassis.

  4. I have the previous model based on a Haswell Celeron CPU. I use it as a dedicated system (Ubuntu 14.4) in my work-space for doing embedded projects (things like Arduino) where the front-mounted COM ports are pretty handy. The *one* thing I dislike about the old model is that it only had HDMI and VGA — fine for two two hand-me-down LCDs I use, but I really would like to move to a single large 4k screen, and on the old model neither HDMI or VGA will go above 1920×1200. The DisplayPort on this model solves that; I see an upgrade in my future.

  5. I am glad it supports Win 7 since I don’t really care for Win 8 or Win 8.1. I think it is neat that one can customize it to what one needs and wants.
