Introduction

Today, Vr-Zone will be taking a look at the Shuttle SD11G5, a Small Form Factor Barebone system based on the Intel Pentium Mobile Platform. This little wonder features quite a few new innovations, apart from being based on the Intel 915GM Pentium M platform, the SD11G5 also features a mini-PCI slot that allows users to slot in a mini-wireless card and a Creative Souldblaster Live! 24 bit HD audio solution.

Another honorable mention would be the case of the SD11G5 itself; it is the first Shuttle SFF housed in the G5 chassis that comes in a glossy pearl whilte finish, and I would say that the finish of the case is EXCELLENT. I absolutely adore the case and it was simply a love at first sight.

The features introduced in this little machine is also very ideal for it to be deployed as a Home Theater Personal Computer, with DVI and composite out connectivity options found onboard as well as a pretty decent onboard sound solution.

Later in the review, we will be taking a further look at the interesting features adopted by Shuttle. First, let’s take a good look at the specifications of the SD11G5.
