Michael Sporrer, CEO of spo-comm GmbH, is delighted with the latest addition to his company's comprehensive product range: "Our partners and their customers have repeatedly stressed their need for a device for use in specific areas. With the spo-book FLEX Q87 we have fulfilled this requirement. Its hardware meets the latest requirements arising nowadays in areas such as digital signage, kiosks or industrial control. The possibility of controlling three monitors simultaneously in particular is a distinct advantage in the day-to-day work of these and related areas."
Apart from the three connectors for monitors, the integrated, high-performance CPU is also an important factor of the new device. What's more, the spo-book FLEX Q87 is designed for continuous operation – a major difference compared to conventional office PCs. Its special design is especially important to industrial and commercial users, who, with the help of an integrated wall bracket, can mount the new computer in a way that is best appropriate for the installation site.
"With our products we are always looking to achieve perfect quality," stresses Sporrer. "This is why we developed our new mini-PC together with MSI IPC, finished with loving attention to detail. This system is the perfect solution for all those applications that demand high CPU performance but where limited space is available."
As an operating system, users have a choice between Windows 7 or Windows 8 (in their 32-bit or 64-bit versions, respectively). Alternatively, Ubuntu can also be used. With regard to the installation site, the new Mini-PC by spo-comm is flexible as it can be operated at ambient temperatures of between -10 and 40 degrees.
