spo-book WINDBOXIII+: MSI and spo-comm’s common masterpiece

Never change a winning team: Together with MSI spo-comm now continues the success story of the WINDBOX with the latest version WINDBOXIII+. Above all spo-comm’s management is very pleased about the strong commitment and voice they have during the development process in the meanwhile.

Michael Sporrer, CEO spo-comm GmbH, says: “Since 2008 we work very close with MSI and are nowadays the most important partner for IPC systems in Europe. Our cooperation is now that trustful and close that the design of the products in the systems division bases on our suggestions mostly.”

While housing and connections are identical to the predecessor model, the mini pc’s functional inside is available in two different variants: On the one hand as a basic model with an Intel Celeron CPU for WINDBOX newcomers, on the other hand as top model with a powerful Intel Core i5 CPU. What both models have in common: They run with the operating systems Windows 8, Windows 7 Embedded and Ubuntu 12.04. The basic model will be less expensive than the previous WINDBOXIII – which will still be available of course – the top model’s prize will be a little bit higher.

As usual the latest model of the mini PC specialists captivates through its simple elegance, good design and lightness as the WINDBOXIII+ weighs about 1,5 kilogramme and therefore is simply to handle in terms of installation. Furthermore it requires less space at the same time. For those who want to see more details, please have a closer look at the spo-book WINDBOXIII+ nearly in real in a 360 degree view with zoom function at the website's product presentations.

spo-book WINDBOXIII+ is probably available for spo-comm partners exclusively in August 2012, all others can buy it at the beginning of September 2012.

[description] =>

As the new mini PC still impresses with its included Intel Atom Technology on the cutting edge, it now has amongst the common DVI interface another one for monitors – on which pictures and videos are shown razor-sharp in full HD.

Further highlights of the powerful device are the unlimited usage of 64 bit operating systems or the expanded working memory: up to 4 GB RAM in comparison to 2 GB RAM of the earlier model. The power consumption is also worth mentioning: At highest performance level the device only needs about 19 watt – thanks to the very powerful but extremly economic combination of a powerful graphics processor and a very energy saving processor. In regards to external influences the Plus model impresses with a strong performance, too: It smoothly operates at temperatures of 0 °C up to 40°C and even an air humidity up to 90 % can't stop its capability.

spo-book WINDBOXII Plus is available for spo-comm partners exclusively at the mid of April 2012, all others can buy it at the mid of May. Of course, the predecessor – spo-book WINDBOXII – is still available. Thanks to same size and design WINDBOXII Plus can replace the previous model easily and quickly without any effort for users.
