Specification and Accessories
Shuttle ST61G4 system consists of a case with a PSU and preinstalled flash card reader and a mainboard with the CPU cooling system on heat pipes. So this system is a true barebone, which is used as a basis for computer assembly. Thanks to their small dimensions and standard “desktop” components, systems of the “cubic” form-factor are very popular among the users. They come into our homes and offices, and gamers also start paying attention to them since it’s hard to find a better computer for a LAN party. The formal specifications of the Shuttle ST61G4 are listed below:
- An aluminum system case with a mirror front panel;
- 300x200x185mm dimensions, 4.65kg total weight;
- The case has one “open” 5.25-inch bay and one “internal” 3.5” bay;

Shuttle ST61G4 comes with the same accessories as every other mini-system from Shuttle. The colorful stylish box with a carry handle contains the barebone (with the mainboard, cooling system and card reader already installed), cables (FDD, Parallel and Serial ATA, power), a user manual, an assembly manual and CD discs with all necessary drivers and software.
Shuttle has been making barebone systems for a while already and now offers over a dozen different products and a number of optional components. For example, these are the things you can use with Shuttle ST61G4: a remote control with a USB receiver, a wireless IEEE 802.11b unit, a knapsack for carrying the barebone about (if you are into LAN parties) and DVD-ROM drives that match the coloring of the barebone (black or silver front panel).
