Shuttle XPC SB62G2: ‘Best of the Year’
Open for Business (Ofb), where IT professionals find new tools and techniques to migrate to Linux, has named the Shuttle XPC SB62G2 as the best Linux system of the year. Noting the system for style, features and ease-of-use, Ofb also demonstrated that this XPC with Mandrake Linux clearly outclasses competing systems with its exceptional value, flexibility and style.
"It is hard not to see the XPC SB62G2 as a piece of art - it works so well in such a small amount of space," exclaimed Tim Butler, Ofb’s editor. "For the aesthetically concerned, its black metal and plastic case with a "brushed" effect on the front is sure to please."
Apart from just looking cool, the XPC SB62G2 is an incredibly powerful small form factor (SFF) computer. Based on the Intel® 865G + ICH5-R chipset, this machine supports a full range of current Intel 800MHz FSB Pentium® 4 processors, including the 3.2 GHz and the 3.0 GHz "Extreme Edition."
"Despite the urge to assume otherwise, I repeat: the XPC packs all of the latest features you'll probably want and need," reiterated Tim. "The system includes RAID support, not one, but two, network cards, six USB 2.0 ports (two on the front), AGP 8X, PC3200 memory and Serial ATA. Let there be no doubt: this is a serious system."
