1/7/2020 — Editor Notes: Elotouch announced new compute engine which is a bit of a first for them. Historically touchscreens with AIO options as well. They branched out somewhat into enclosures and a remote monitoring package last year. Big client would be Taco Bell. And in regards to TB, the accessibility of those units are still in question. Several groups have tested and been dissatisfied.
Couple of points on this product:
- They provide a 12-V powered USB port for cash drawers. That competes with Dell, HP and Lenovo.
- Its a little strange how the 8th generation is highlighted when we get 9th generation from Dell and others.
- Impressive 16 ports
- Celeron, i3 or i5
- Celeron should provide a nice price break given Redstone pricing from Microsoft
- Either Windows 10 (version not listed) or Linux (no OS)
- TPM 2.0 instead of 1.2 to consider. Not sure if TPM chip is from China or Germany.
- All in all good start for Elo albeit less than leading edge
