Our macines are custom designed for our software and our customers environments.
The power supplies that we use are configured for the lowest power consumption and heat production that can be utilized and still allow the performance needed.
The air flow and filter system we use protects the interior circuitry from 99% contamination (dust and lint).
We use laptop hard disks with 225Gs vibration and shock tolerance and lower heat production.
Every machine we build goes out with the latest patches and updates from our hardware and software vendors.
All machines are given a minimum 3-day performance and burn-in test before they are shipped.
Our products are continually tested and updated in the level of processing and system capabilities 4 times a year. This is so that you get a system with current proven technology and not something that has been sitting on a shelf for a year or that has just been released with unknown hardware/software compatibility issues.
Make sure you are comparing apples to apples.
Check the pricing for any manufacturer of an INDUSTRIAL PC you will see that we are very competitive.
We have had customers try and use normal home or business computers (Dell or HP) as count stations and they usually last 6 months and everytime you send the unit to Dell they wipe the hard disk and then you end up with additional hassle of 2 to 3 vendors for one box (Hardware, OS and applications).
