“Intel’s Atom platform has been a huge success since it has launched, without the Atom chip you probably wouldn’t know what a netbook is! With its huge success many companies are creating all types of different products based on the Atom. With this comes the nettop, a small form factor, inexpensive, low-wattage desktop computer. Today we will be looking at one of the most powerful nettop’s out there the Shuttle X50. It features the Atom 330 dual-core processor, 1GB of memory and a 15.6-inch touch screen display.”

It looks just like just a touchscreen LCD, but hidden behind that screen is a fairly powerful desktop system. The overall power and heat limitations that an all-in-one system imposes have been avoided thanks to the usage of a dual core 1.6GHz Atom 330 and the onboard Intel GMA 950 GPU. Think Computers were impressed by the power offered, HD movie playback was good at the worst but they were disappointed that Shuttle did not take advantage of the touchscreen, there was no custom software installed on the system at all.
