The Acorn Corporate NC is a revolutionary complement - or alternative - to the networked PC client. Its key advantages are that it can be deployed in large numbers at low cost, and that it carries a very low maintenance overhead.
Relying on the network for its hard disc storage capacity, it is straightforward to use. From instal-lation, through to configuration and upgrades, the Acorn Corporate NC is cheap to maintain because information is stored remotely at central points rather than on the desktop. In addition, because it is so easy to use, the need for user support is vastly reduced.
By deploying Acorn Corporate NCs, corporations can free up significant amounts of capital. Some estimates show that PCs in today's client-server systems are used to as little as 20% of their performance potential. This 'redundancy on the desktop' can be addressed as part of a phased hardware upgrade strategy, by the deployment of Acorn Corporate NCs.
Most organisations with a policy of upgrading their IT systems require new hardware and software to be compatible with existing systems. The Acorn Corporate NC can be integrated with legacy networks, platforms and applications, and interfaces with remote computer systems, to provide access to standard groupware applications on NT or UNIX platforms.
The Acorn Corporate NC gives today's organisations a major competitive edge by allowing them to cut IT costs significantly. It is an intelligent and natural complement to existing client infrastructure.
The technology of the Acorn Corporate NC is based on a mature operating
system environment which is proven all over the world. Production units are
available now, and come with a built-in Ethernet interface, Smartcard and
standard, wired keyboard/mouse.
Optional IR keyboard and handset are available.
Monitor not included.
The Acorn NC has a uniquely powerful combination of advanced features.
