InFocus releases Mondopad Ultra Windows 10 PC to take on Microsoft Surface Hub
The most well-known device created by InFocus is the Kangaroo, a portable, cheap Windows 10 PC with its own battery. The manufacturer is now expanding its product portfolio with a new PC that runs Windows 10 called the Mondopad Ultra. Its giant 70-inch 4K screen is perfect for presentations and interactive classroom activities and will no doubt boost workplace and collaborations between groups.
Microsoft’s 55-inch Surface Hub with Full HD resolution is priced at $8,999, while the 84-inch 4K Hub is available for $21,999. If you’re looking for a PC with a screen size between the two and which supports a 4K resolution, then you’ll spend $13,999 on the Mondopad Ultra which uses “projected capacitive touch technology.”
InFocus explained that “touch technology that is used on leading smartphones and personal tablets eliminates the need for a stylus and enables a more intuitive and natural user experience. Unlike IR touchscreens, capacitive touch technology allows more touch points with faster response and bezel-free edge-to-edge glass, allowing for a brighter and sharper display, a sleek industrial design, and remarkably fluid multi-touch capabilities.”
The full list of key specs of the Mondopad Ultra includes:
- a 70-inch LED edge-lit LCD that supports 3840 x 2160pixels and has 16-point edge-to-edge projected capacitive touch;
- powered by a powerful Intel Core i7-6700T (Skylake) processor that’s backed by 8GB of RAM,
- has an SSD hard drive with a capacity of 256GB;
- a built-in 720p camera with three microphones, integrated stereo speakers, connects via dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0;
- VGA inputs as well as two HDMI 2.0 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port, five USB Type-A, USB Type-B for touch control, RS232 in, two RJ45 ports, two Display Port 1.2, 3.5mm audio in, RCA stereo in, and RCA stereo out.
The computer is pretty heavy at around 50kg.
