VIA Announces Ultra Thin VESA Mounted PC for Instant Display Systems
The VIA vmpc vm7700, a unique approach to digital signage and media display, converts any standard LCD monitor into a full x86 PC in minutes
Taipei, Taiwan, 8 October 2007 - VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading developer of x86 silicon and platform solutions, today announced the new VIA vm7700 VESA mounted PC (vmpc) that turns a standard display panel into a fully functional PC for signage, kiosk and other intelligent display applications, providing a radically superior space management, cost effective and flexible alternative to traditional panel PCs.
From small desktop LCD monitors to larger flat panel displays, the VIA vmpc vm7700 leverages the industry-standard Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) 10cm x 10cm mounting specification for simple attachment behind the customer’s screen of choice, and offers considerable cost savings when upgrading or replacing screens. Through-chassis mounting allows the VIA vm7700 to be secured behind a flat screen display in seconds, or firmly mounted on walls or under desks, while dual-view support extends display utility.
Fanless configurations based on a 1.0GHz VIA C7 or 1.5GHz VIA Eden ULV processor and the ultra low power VIA CX700M2 system media processor enable the VIA vm7700 to deliver a solution packed with rich multimedia features within a maximum power of only 12 watts and a low 45ºC thermal envelope – essential for display-mounted systems.

This one seems to be a natural for the Financial community or similar office environments that need "thin client" (or maybe not-so-thin when you consider the features) access and functionality.
Great review, Thanks.
