MPC-435 Mobility PC Small Computer

MPC-435 Front View

Mobility PCs are small desktop computers, that are a fraction of the size of a traditional desktop PC. This makes them the perfect choice for use in any area where space is constrained. Their small size, computing power, features, robust design and thermal efficiency allow them to be used in a vast range of applications.

The MPC-435 is a fully integrated desktop PC. It supports Intel notebook Core 2 Duo processors. Up to 2GB of RAM and standard 2.5-inch hard disk drives. It includes 3D video, 16-bit audio, 10/100/1000 LAN, an IEEE-1394 Firewire port, three USB 2.0 ports, and an RS232 serial port. An optional CD, DVD+CD/RW or DVD+DVD/RW drive can also be fitted.

Drivers are provided for all major Operating systems: Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Vista and Linux. The included driver CD makes operating system installation totally painless. The MPC-435 is powered from a small autoswitching (110/240 VAC, 50/60 Hz), notebook type, power adaptor.
