Low power, small, wall mountable pc



This is something neat I found at the sunbeltblog. Usually I see spyware/security related bits there, but this was different and worth a mention. It appears to be a wall mountable pc around 4-5″ square.



It has monitor output, 4 usb ports, draws power from the ethernet connection (if you’ve got power-over ethernet) and has audio in and out plugs.

It’s made by Chip PC Info and pictures here, is a thin-client and according to the site “the computer mounts unobtrusively inside a standard wall socket”. It boasts 5W power consumption, “Resident Citrix ICA,Microsoft RDP,local browser IE 6 and 50 other plug-ins for local applications.” It doesn’t say if there is xdmcp client or nx client for linux thin-client capabilities, but it looks fairly promising (333/500 mhz risc AMD processors depending on the model.

Just provide a usb keyboard/mouse and monitor and you’re set. For LARGE businesses I would see the power consumption as making for a big savings as well.
