    One goes to your cash drawer to tell it when to open, the other goes to a barcode reader or possibly a pinpad. I think Shuttle sell quite a lot of kit to shops.

    I am more baffled by the twin ethernet sockets.

    Firewall? Would make a great low powered smoothwall/proxy or similar.

    There's also an element of redundancy - given there's no other expansion (ignoring USB), a failed LAN port would effectively render the machine useless. From a business perspective, a spare is a useful addition given the form factor etc. As a Shuttle dealer, I've had a few instances of failed LAN ports, and whilst a PCI(E) card usually solves the problem, that's not possible here. A sensible inclusion, I think, even ignoring the firewall option.

    This looks like a useful replacement for older PCs controlling CNC machines and there are still plenty of stepper motor controllers in service that use RS232, and older (even DOS based) control software may not play nicely with USB-Serial chips.

    Even though you don't see serial or parallel ports as often on motherboards these days, many still have a serial header, useful for my plotter and Garmin Etrex.

    I was thinking the same thing, both network ports are driven by Intel chips too.

    RS-232 are very heavily used in the industrial space. You don't see them much in consumer products but don't take that to mean they're not used elsewhere. Make this sort of system without them and customers will probably just laugh at it.

    They're not the fastest of interfaces but that's often unimportant, and their simplicity is extremely useful at times, you don't need expensive components to talk it nor fancy cables ensuring standard compliance, a few lengths of random wire will do just fine.

    And nor do you need hugely expensive test equipment to debug the signal.

    Faster and more expensive isn't always better.

    Edit: I'm not too sure what this offers over the existing DS437 though - the CPU is clocked at 1.5GHz vs 1.8GHz and I'm not sure if the IVB-BW IPC improvements compensate for that? The Shuttle documentation also has the new system at slightly higher idle power consumption.

    Re: Shuttle launches its first Broadwell fanless barebone PC

    so why build one of these, and not use a thinkcentre m73? Just the RS232?

    "a full size mini PCI Express slot"

    classic oxymoron. Is there such a thing as a non-full sized mini PCIe slot out of interest?

    Yup, mini PCIe comes in full sized and half height cards.
