Shuttle recently launched the XPC nano NC01U line of tiny desktop computers, starting with a $160 barebones model featuring an Intel Celeron Broadwell processor. While that’s a pretty attractive price for an entry-level computer, the barebones model doesn’t include memory, storage, or an operating system.
Now Shuttle has a model that comes with Windows 10 Home pre-installed.
The computer has just 2GB of RAM and 32GB of solid state storage, so this is still very much an entry-level computer. But at least you don’t need to supply any hardware yourself (other than a keyboard, mouse, and display).
Other features include 802.11ac WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports. It also has mini DisplayPort and HDMI, and support for ultra HD displays.
Under the hood the computer can handle up to 16GB of RAM and has room for a 2.5 inch, 7mm storage drive and/or an M.2 solid state drive.
