Barebones Android PC aimed at low-cost 24/7 operation

• http://www.gizmag.com, By Chris Wood
Shuttle's latest effort, the DSA2LS distinguishes itself by opting for Google's Android operating system, while providing low-end specs and good connectivity.

You won't find any high-end components here, but that's not what the DSA2LS is about. Shuttle's new machine revels in its low-end specs, running on a 1 GHz dual core ARM Cortex A9 processor, backed up by 1 GB of RAM and only 4 GB of internal storage. Luckily, there is an SD card slot on the front of the system allowing for expansion up to 64 GB. The card slot is sealed away behind a screw-locked panel for security.

While the system isn't going to break any computing speed records, it is completely fanless, with an ambient temperature range of 0-45? C (113? F) and an idle power consumption of just 4 watts, making it ideal for 24/7 operation.
