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.
