Xiomtek's P1177S-871 is a workstation-level industrial panel computer that features a 17" SXGA (1280 x 1024) TFT LCD touchscreen display with a dual-display interface that can simultaneously support DVI and HDMI inputs. The computer is powered by an Intel Q77 Express chipset with an LGA1155 socket that is compatible with 3rd Generation Intel Core and Celeron processors.
The P1177S-871 has two SODIMM sockets that support a maximum of 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and includes four COM connectors (3 x RS-232, 1 x RS-232/422/485), two 2.5" SATA drive bays, HD audio, four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.
The scalable P1177S-871 features built-in speakers and supports a WLAN module antenna (WiFi 802.11 b/g/n) for wireless network connectivity of up to 150 Mb/s.
Like many of the company's industrial products, the aluminum enclosure is built to "withstand harsh operating environments" and has IP65 water and NEMA 4 dust-proof protection. The system offers a range of mounting options including panel, wall, VESA arm and standard desktop stand.
The Axiomtek P1177S-871 will be available in "late April 2013." Further price information is expected to be announced in the near future.

They stuck a TFT to a thin case?Reply
There probably is a little more to it than that but basically, yes.10667545 said:They stuck a TFT to a thin case?
Well, this is an industrial computer so function is usually more important than form. If it gets the job done and fits where you need it to fit without busting the budget, that's good enough. If it can look good or mostly disappear in a wall/rack in the process, even better.
