MCC Computer Company, manufacturer of the Modular PC, and shells announced today plans to introduce a new product line at the Consumer Electronics Show 2005 (CES).
MCC's Modular PC allows the end user to eliminate the need for multiple operating platforms and supporting multiple software licenses.
The Modular PC measures 3"x5"x3/4" and weighs approximately 9.1 ounces. The Modular PC is not much larger than a deck of cards. The power supply, display and I/O connectors have been removed. The CPU contains the processor, memory, data and applications. Inside the Modular PC are a 1 Ghz processor, 512 RAM, and a 20 or 30 GB hard drive. Unlike many handheld computers, the Modular PC runs full Windows XP Professional. But the benefits of the Modular PC don't stop with its portability.
High tech professionals demand flexibility and affordability in computing solutions, said Klaus Genssler, President of MCC. "The Modular PC can replace the desktop, laptop and PDAs. The Modular PC is inserted into the Microtablet for mobile applications; the Laptop shell for a laptop experience, and a desk top dock for a traditional desktop experience. The Modular PC is expandable and upgradeable. Time and money are saved by supporting only one operating system and no longer having to synchronize data from one device to another," states Genssler.
