Shuttle is a manufacturer...
The notable thing they build are relatively small form factor computers,
called XPC. They're not minscule, but are sort of a "cubical" shape,
with practically everything integrated onto the XPC box. Unsuitable for
doing anything high end; they're neither the cheapest thing you can get
nor the smallest. It looks like a usable "luggable" computer...
OTA Computers at about College and Major carries numerous XPC models.
