As expected, small form-factor PC maker Shuttle is entering the compact gaming PC business. After teasing a new mini gaming desktop called the Shuttle X1 in June, the company is now selling the “gaming nano” computer.

With a starting price of $1715, the Shuttle X1 isn’t exactly cheap. But it packs a lot of power into a small space. The entry-level model is a VR-ready machine that features an Intel Core i5-7300HQ quad-core processor, NVIDIA GeForce 1060 graphics, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of solid state storage, and a 1TB hard drive.

Shuttle also offers a $1750 version with 256GB of solid state storage (but no included hard drive), and a $1959 model with 16GB of RAM, a Core i7-7700HQ processor, ,and the 256GB SSD.

All three models ship with Windows 10 Home and come with a 3-year warranty.

The little desktops supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2 and feature three HDMI ports and a DisplayPort jack, 8 USB Type-A ports plus a USB TYpe-C port, an SD card reader and a headset jack.

Shuttle isn’t the first company to stuff the guts of a gaming PC into a small case. Gigabyte offers a line of Brix gaming computers, and Zotac has its Magnus line.

Looking at the current specs and prices for those models, I’m not really sure how competitive Shuttle’s offerings will be. But it’s always nice to have choices.

  1. Its not that small, it lacks GPU power and its in a butt ugly, cheap plastic box designed for 14 Year olds? Uhh, I’m doing the 14 Year olds wrong, they got better taste than that.

    Either way, with fine, very small aluminum gaming cases around like the M1, Dan’s case, Lian Li’s various options, who needs this overpriced crap?

    If I really want a pre-done proprietary (remember Shuttle? never could upgrade them properly) I’ll go for Asus little gaming box, at least they know that “gamers” need GPU power.

    Go away Shuttle and come back with something worth talking about :p

  2. Wow. Total rip off. You can buy a laptop with those specs for half the price.

  3. I’d say boring+boring, but it’s really boring^4 in a boxy package. Do they really think these prices are compelling for the pile of meh they’re offering? I slapped together my 32GB/512GB NVMe/1600X/GTX1080 in what amounts to a modular AIO for $1500 and a little manual fab time for significantly better specs than what is offered at $1959. You’re paying $500+ for a pseudo SFF case that isn’t much better than one of the $150 box cases.

    1. Yeah, the case is horrendous. They must be economizing to avoid going out of business in this PC market.
      Perhaps they should have followed Microshaft and focused on Cellphones…
