A Taiwanese manufacturer is releasing a new mini PC called the Shuttle X27. It measures just 10” long x 7” wide x less than 3” tall, It’s not only small in size it also uses about half the energy of a typical PC. A conventional desktop computer consumes from 70 to 250 watts when in use. The new Shuttle X27 uses approximately 36 watts when active and only 23 watts when idle. According to goodcleantech.com, “The new Shuttle X27 mini-PC runs on an Intel Atom processor and could be classified as a “Nettop,” which is a term used for low-cost desktop computers.” Hopefully once the new model Shuttle X27 is revealed at the IFA consumer electronics show on Friday in Berlin, we’ll have some idea how much it will cost.
