POS-X’s New EVO Line

October 8, 2009

Our lovely friends at POS-X are working to build a more economical lineup of products, under the EVO product umbrella. These products are not only less expensive, but they’re designed to lower your total cost of ownership through things like lower power usage, greater durability, and more comprehensive coverage. First out the gate are the EVO-TM1 and EVO-TP1, a touchscreen monitor and all-in-one touchscreen computer, respectively.

The EVO-TM1 is a 15″ touchscreen monitor, which is what the TM stands for. Not Tiny Man. Or Triumphant Muppet. It’s a pretty solid monitor, with VGA input and a 1024×768 native resolution. It rocks a 5-wire resistive touch screen setup, so it’s pretty accurate for touchscreening and doesn’t have any touching requirements like you get with capacitive or acoustic pulse screens.

You can also pop this badboy off the stand and VESA mount it to whatever you like, such as walls or MMF’s new display pole holder thing.

TP does not stand for Toilet Paper, I don’t think. It may stand for Tyrannosaur Parliament, because dinosaurs in wigs sounds awesome. This system rocks an Intel Atom processor rated at 1.6 GHz. That may not seem like a lot of GHz, but Intel made them more efficient, so it’s on par with a P4 2.6 GHz or Celeron 2.8 GHz. It’s also more energy efficient, drawing 65W for the whole setup. Compare that to the 180W-250W for most all-in-ones (alls-in-one?) and you can see some great savings right there.

Unfortunately, the EVO-TP1 can’t get VESA mounted quite yet. The hard drive is located in the base, so you’d have a dangly if you tried to remove the base and wall mount it. Not a good plan aesthetically. However, it sounds like POS-X will have a solid state option soon, putting it all on one small board and further speeding up the system. And then you can have your very own wall mounted computer type thing for not a whole lot of money.
