Shuttle to debut small K5600+ PC with Via Nano in March

Shuttle's small K5600+ shoebox sized PC will debut in March with Via Nano microprocessors.

Taiwanese PC vendor Shuttle plans to debut a shoebox sized PC, the K5600+ with Via Technology's Nano microprocessor in March, a company representative said Sunday.

The small form factor PC will come with 1GB of DRAM, an 80GB HDD (hard disk drive) and DVD player and run Microsoft's Windows Home Premium OS.

Pricing was not immediately available.

The product will be among the first desktop PCs launched with Via's Nano microprocessor, which is the company's competitor to Intel's popular Atom microprocessor.

Via showed off several Nano-based netbooks, mini-laptops that are popular for their low prices, at the International Consumer Electronics show on Thursday. The chips can run at between 1.3GHz and 1.8GHz, according to Via.

The Nano replaces another Via chip in the K5600+, the Via C7. Shuttle also sells similar PCs with Intel chips inside.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
