Introducing the Shuttle X500V, it comes pre-installed with openSuse Linux. The all-in-one machine comes with a 15.6 touchscreen! The maximum resolution is 1366 x 768 pixels. It’s powered by Intel Atom 330 dual-core CPU with 1GB of DDR2 RAM. The hard drive capacity is at 160GB HDD. It comes with the standard 1.3-megapixel webcam, a memory card reader, microphone, and stereo speakers. Unfortunately, it’s only available in Europe for €444.

iPhone

Another innovative product from Apple has arrived. Its called the iPhone. It’s a cell phone, an iPod, and an internet device all wrapped in one little package. It’s powered by OS X and comes with the Safari browser and a touch screen. Like an iPod, you can play music, videos and display photos. Like the cell phone, it has all the typical features such as SMS and Voicemail. The price is a bit on the high side at $499 in my opinion. This gadget definitely possesses a “wow factor.” It also has the “I want to have one” effect on people. Is it worth the try? Not me. Not for now. The price has to go down considerably for me to get one. In the meantime, I’ll just admire the iPhone from a distance.
