Shuttle’s XS35 line of nettops are just 1.5 inches thick, but unlike some tiny desktops on the market, the XS35 packs an optical disk drive. The little computer also has a ton of connectivity options including 5 USB ports, Ethernet, VGA, HDMI, mic and headphone jacks and a flash card reader.
The nettop has built in 802.1b/g/n WiFi and a dual core Intel Atom D510 processor. The base model comes with integrated GMA 3150 graphics, but there’s also a higher end model with NVIDIA ION 2 graphics for 1080p HD video output.
The base model comes with 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive, but higher end versions come with 2GB of memory and 320G or 500GB hard drives.
You can snag the top of the line ION-powered Shuttle XS35 from Newegg for $380 plus shipping. This model has 2GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive, but ships without an operating system.
