Shuttle X50 Touchscreen Nettop Makes Me Miss My LunchboxS

The Shuttle X50 is a touchscreen nettop that isn't afraid to be manhandled around the house

The X50, first spotted at CES, features a 15.6-inch, 16x9 touchscreen along with Windows XP, a dual core Atom 330 processor, 160GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, memory card reader, 1.3MP camera and an impressive five USB ports.

But what I find so appealing about the X50 isn't the somewhat typical internal design but the simple, well-considered external configuration that's both wall-mountable and placed anywhere like a picture frame. No keyboard? Whatever, there's a handle! What else do you really need?

The last word on the X50 was that it would be out this month for $499, but since that information wasn't included in this latest press barrage, we're guessing it could be delayed with a modified price.
