Shuttle was featured on ABC News 10 and was highlighted as "reinventing the notebook computer" in ABC News 10's coverage of the latest products and technologies.

"We used to have a motto when we created the first small form factor desktop with standard parts – Shuttle leads and others follow," said Nicolas Villalobos, manager at Shuttle Computer Group in Los Angeles, "With our new standardized form factor for notebooks, we're leading the innovation game once again and setting a standard for others to follow. We're redefining the way notebooks are built and in the end, this will not only benefit professional system builders, but also everyday consumers."

ABC News 10 spotlighted the new notebook business strategy from Shuttle, which introduces a standardized form factor for notebooks, allowing for "close-to-universal part interchangeability" and "reinventing the notebook" as we know it today.

"While the popularity of notebook computers have been increasing over the years due to portability and ever-dropping prices, they've been suffering one of the things that make desktop models a much better choice for many: internal component interchangeability," writes Barry White at ABC News 10, "Shuttle seeks to change that."

"The company has introduced their PBC assembly form factor which (depending on screen-size) will allow for close-to-universal part interchangeability," adds Barry White at ABC News 10, "While it is possible for somebody with a Toshiba, Dell or Hewlett-Packard (HP) notebook to contact their respective manufacturer for a replacement part, all too often by the time said part is in need of replacement the company has moved away from its form factor and no longer supports that model of laptop. Shuttle's PBC shouldn't face such issues."
