Shuttle to have two Atom barebones

The X27 and K58
Shuttle is going to showcase two different Intel Atom-based barebones at this year's IFA show in Berlin, the 7cm tall X27 and the K-Series K58, which will retain the Shuttle cube shaped look and dimensions.
Shuttle apparently believes in Intel's Atom, which will enable it to sell barebones suited for simple applications such as Internet, emailing and word processing. The slim X27 sounds like a great deal, as you get a nice living-room computer that is able to do most of the normal tasks. In addition to that, the X27 will also feature an almost fanless chassis, thus making it even more perfect for everyday use.
The other Intel Atom-based barebone, branded K58, will be more of a budget oriented system, without any innovations as it retains the well known look of Shuttle's barebones.
Besides these two Atom-based barebones, Shuttle is going to show a complete Mini PC with an embedded 7-inch touch screen which is based on its D10 platform. According to the press release, everyday applications, home automation, media playback and video surveillance can all be managed by the Shuttle D10 and will be demonstrated live at the show.
As always, Shuttle also didn't forget its gaming line of Shuttle XPCs and its Shuttle systems that are able to do high definitions movies, so expect those to be showcased, as well.
Here are some pictures of the noted systems, and you can find two of these models already listed at Geizhals.at. The X27 has the lowest price set at €217.38, while the 7-inch touchscreen D10 sells for €331.75.
