Tangent Debuts Green Computer

Silicon Valley-based company, Tangent, which provides Computing solutions engineered specifically for commercial, industrial, and healthcare applications, has launched Evergreen 17, an ultra slim, all-in-one touch screen "Green PC" which the company claims to be environmentally-friendly, saving both energy and cost.

Designed to help schools and government entities achieve their Green Energy Reduction Initiatives, this new PC Evergreen 17 is sleek and lightweight and includes an optional 5-wire resistive touch screen.

"Not only do users experience computing with a touch screen LCD in a space-saving form factor, they also get industry leading power efficiency at 24 watts and 72 percent less energy usage than Energy Star 4.0 limits," said Douglas Monsour, president at Tangent.

"This translates into cost-savings while, at the same time, helping the environment."

The Evergreen 17 comes with a Via Eden 1.0 GHz (fan-less) processor or the ViaC7 1.50 GHz (low noise fan). The operating system is either Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Embedded for server and Web-based computing. In addition to these, a Linux version is also available. The PC has a 10/100/1000 Ethernet onboard and optional wireless LAN as well as memory of up to 2GB DDR SDRAM.

The Evergreen 17 can also be ordered with an optional solid-state drive to provide a 100 percent solid-state system with no moving parts to fail and customers have an option of choosing from 1, 2, 4, 16, 32, or 64GB solid-state drives. .

Ideal for server-based and browser-based applications, the PC is equipped with a high brightness TFT panel and resistive touch. It weighs 15.8 lbs. and is only 2.25 inches in depth.

The product is available with a one-year parts and labor warranty and optional one year on-site service.
