Little IBM kiosk makes a big splash

From ThomasNet Industrial News:

"Manufactured with open system design, [the] IBM Anyplace Kiosk offers flexible configuration in space-saving form factor. It comes with choice of 12 in., 800 x 600 LCD or 15 in., 1024 x 768 active matrix LCD touchscreen interface. Powered by 1.3 GHz Intel™ Celeron® M Processor 320 with 400 MHz FSB and 512 KB cache, product provides 256 MB of memory, expandable to 2 GB, and supports full-motion video. Presence sensor allows activation of kiosk when users approach up to 5 ft away.
"IBM Anyplace Kiosk solutions are designed for style and engineered for performance, enabling you to run self-service applications in virtually any environment. Created to help withstand the rigors of unattended use, the new models of the IBM Anyplace Kiosk family feature an all-new, space-saving form factor, IR touchscreen, multiple peripheral, and third-party enclosure options. The new Anyplace Omni Scanner is a high-performance scanner designed specifically for the IBM Anyplace Kiosk. The adaptive, multipattern scan engine packs power and performance into one of the smallest packages available. In addition, the new models are multimedia ready. This comprehensive IBM Anyplace Kiosk family facilitates easy, rapid implementation while its compact design is ideal where space is at a premium."

Having worked with some of these for a few weeks now myself, I must say that they're pretty impressive. You can read the rest of the specifications here.
