Shuttle's Atom-powered X27 mini PC goes easy on the power bill

Darren Murph

Shuttle has always been small, but now it's hopping on the completely overcrowded green bandwagon with its latest mini PC. The X27, which sports an admittedly sleek shell, will suck down as little as 23-watts while idle and 36-watts while in use. Additionally, the unit will include one of Intel's Atom chips, and as predicted, fan noise shouldn't be an issue. The entire case measures just 10- x 7- x 2.75-inches, and while a price hasn't been outed for the September-bound nettop, we'd expect to hear more as IFA gets going on the 29th.
