[News] KPCs Come with GNU/Linux Preinstalled

Hash: SHA1

Shuttle completes its reinvention

,----[ Quote ]
| KPCs are the name of the new low end/Linux line that Shuttle put out last 
| year. We told you about them first a year ago, and now they have a bunch of 
| models sold under the KPC brand. The latest is the K5600, a Via C7 + CN7000 
| based computer. It retails for $139 or so including the box and CPU. If you 
| want a really nice machine to build an HTPC around, get one of these and slap 
| an ATI 4500/4600 in. Add in some Ram, an HD, Mythbuntu, and for under $300, 
| you have a complete system. Damn nice.

| If you're in the market for a solid secondary system for running basic tasks
| and surfing the Web, or if you're ready to take the Linux plunge, the K4800
| is one of the best deals around, especially if you already have a spare
| monitor, keyboard, and mouse.

| I spent the majority of my time using Linux Mint, because it's the
| least-hassling Linux distribution I've ever come across. It's Ubuntu with
| enough tweaks and uniquely Mint applications that it's its own animal.


Shuttle KPC K4500 Compact PC - PC World

| Alas, neither drive bay is externally accessible, so you can't add an
| internal optical drive. When the K4500 functions as a corporate PC or a kiosk
| machine, this is no problem; but if you want to install a copy of Windows
| (the KPC runs Linux), plan on doing it via an external drive. The machine
| lacks front-panel ports such as USB 2.0 and audio, though it has four USB 2.0
| ports plus legacy parallel and serial ports on the back.

| The K4500 runs a green-hued version of the Gnome Linux desktop. Overall, the
| user experience is good, and the speed adequate. The PC ships with the
| OpenOffice productivity suite and such other Linux apps as the Firefox
| browser, the Pidgin instant messenger, and the F-Spot photo organizer.

$199 Shuttle kPC ditches Ubuntu for Foresight Linux

| When Shuttle unveiled its low-cost kPC desktop at CES in January, word was
| that the machine would come pre-loaded with a copy of the popular Ubuntu
