The Shuttle X6100 ($1,494.99 direct) is a compact desktop built into the Shuttle XH61 barebones PC kit. Instead of having to source all your own parts and components from all over the Internet, you can buy an already assembled version from Shuttle, along with a three-year warranty. As configured here, the X6100 is a quad core-powered, SSD-equipped speed demon, though you can build a basic Linux-powered model for under $700. There are a couple of shortcomings, but on the whole this system will be attractive to the small business owner, mini PC enthusiast, or media PC enthusiast in your family. The X6100 is a lot more compact than the Shuttle XPC Mini PCs we've looked at in the past. It's the about size of a decent hardcover novel (about 8 by 3 by 9.5 inches, HWD), so it's easy to stash just about anywhere. It will fit easily on most desk surfaces, tucked behind a large monitor or HDTV, or in a home theater cabinet. Its front panel is almost featureless: The large power button is the only thing visible until you pop open the two front panel doors. The system's tray-loading (laptop-class) DVD burner, and front USB 2.0 ports are under the doors, as are the front audio jacks.
