The Shuttle X50 launches with a $600 (or $500 if you opt to not have Windows XP Home preinstalled) price tag. That gets you an all-in-one desktop with a 15.6″ touchscreen display, a low-power Intel Atom 330 processor with two cores, 1GB of RAM, and 160GB of hard disk space. Plus definitley more.
Buyers also get a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam, a 4-in-1 card reader, and 802.11n WiFi capability. Expandability is made possible through 5 USB ports, and maximum RAM capacity of 2GB.
The first thing I’d probably do if I ever bought one is hook it up to a USB keyboard and mouse. Touchscreen may be great for some activities, but give me the keyboard-mouse combo any day.

Today Mimo Monitors announced the US availability of two 7″ USB-driven displays, the Mimo UM-710 (top-left) and UM-740 (top-right).
From all appearances, the 740 ($200) seems like a better deal than the 710 ($130). The extra $70 gets you touchscreen capability, and a built-in webcam and microphone as well. Specs and purchasing info available to those who continue.
