Power over Ethernet (PoE) is handy, if you generally want to deploy gadgets like VoIP phones and surveillance cams. Now SkinnyBytes is looking to add full-fledged computing into the mix.
SkinnyBytes’ PoE PCs, which range in size from 8.9 inches to 18.5 inches, are all-in-one affairs that sport an LED-backlit touchscreen, Atom processors and solid-state drives. But the Arizona-based company had to make one concession in squeezing all that computing out of PoE’s limited wattage: no sound (disabled to conserve power, according to the company). Nonetheless, the PCs consume up to 90 percent less power than traditional PCs.
The company’s top of the line, 18.5-inch AIO Elite (coming soon) with an Intel Atom Dual-Core D510 Processor carries a price of $999. Question is, would you deploy it?
