About the Xi3 Modular Computer
The initial Xi3 Modular Computer (Model X5A-5342) began shipping in the second half of 2011 and is powered by a dual-core x86-based processor that can boot Windows 7 Professional in less than 25 seconds. Its adaptable and building block-like architecture make the Xi3 Modular Computer ideal for desktop, enterprise and specialty applications, and it can run any x86-based application and operating system (including Windows, Linux, Unix and more). Since it only needs a very ecofriendly 20 Watts of power to operate and has a projected useful life of 6-10 years, the Xi3 Modular Computer has one of the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) levels on the planet.
