The New Shuttle SZ87R6


Late last November, Shuttle came out with another powerful PC in their XPC line, which touts itself as a PC with the power of a conventional tower PC while being half the size.  The SZ87R6  in the newest in this line, offering Intel’s new Haswell line of processors. From Shuttle’s website:

The Shuttle XPC Barebone SZ87R6 packs the 4th Generation of Intel Core desktop processors for LGA1150 socket into an elegant, fresh case design. The aluminium chassis with a black-brushed surface has a volume of 14 litre which is just one third of the volume of a standard Midi tower. Despite its small dimensions it is brimming with features. Set up a top-performer with the latest Intel Core i7 Quad Core processor, a dual-slot PCI Express graphics card, mSATA-SSD, two 4 TB hard disks in RAID mode and 32 GB DDR3-1600 memory plus Blu-ray drive. SZ87R6 supports the unlock-function of K-series processors and thanks to the 500W power supply you can also use high-end graphics card for an excellently pure gaming experience. Convince yourself of the versatility and stylish exterior of this Shuttle XPC!

While usually sold as a barebone PC (meaning the buyer has to provide components such as the memory, harddrive and operating system),  here at TheBookPC we build them to order, meaning you get a computer that is ready to run the moment it’s taken out of the box.

And the SZ87R6 is definitely a PC that can offer a lot to even the most discerning buyer. Shuttle’s XPC line is one of the larger PCs we carry, and is not short of room inside the case to allow you customize it to be your next gaming PC, or mini server. It has room for two harddrives, up to 32 GB of memory,  an optical drive,  a wireless card, and even a dual-slot PCI Express graphics card.
