With a simple finger swipe, you will be able to quickly and more safely log onto protected systems and online accounts. Fingerprint authentication makes even Domain login simple and secure... especially when standing or walking around.

Enhanced Data Security with TPM

Trusted Platform Modules (TPM) helps proactively establish more trusted relationships for remote or local access through secure user authentication and machine attestation. TPM chips protect encryption keys and digital signature keys to maintain data confidentiality and integrity. TPM chips are designed to protect key operations and other security tasks that would otherwise be performed on unprotected interfaces in unprotected communications. Especially important, TPM chips are specifically designed to protect platform and user authentication information from software-based attacks. They are designed to enhance platform security beyond the capabilities of software-only solutions.

Pair the Sahara Slate PC i500 with Microsoft® Windows® 7 Ultimate and the BitLocker Full Drive Encryption technology will use the TPM to generate and store its key to make your data even safer than with the software alone.

TPM solutions can help play a strong role in assuring compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to protect medical records, as well as Graham-Leech-Bliley, Sarbanes-Oxley, and other regulations that impose strict privacy and security requirements.

Connect in More Ways than with Any Other Tablet

As a true PC, the Sahara Slate PC i500 features an array of standard Input/Output ports that are critical for real-world business productivity. These include two full-sized USB 2.0 HighSpeed ports, a 6-pin Firewire IEEE 1394a port, a combination eSATA (300 Mbps) + USB 2.0 Highspeed port, Gigabit Ethernet, standard 3.5mm stereo audio in and separate 3.5mm audio out, and a DisplayPort++ digital video port with optional embedded LPCM audio for the highest resolution and highest quality digital video signal possible. Keyboards, mice, cameras, smartphones, HDTVs, video projectors, audio microphones, stereo headphones, external hard drives, media card readers, networking switches, and even 30 inch computer monitors, can all be hooked up to the Sahara Slate PC i500... many simultaneously!

Super-High Resolution Digital Video Out

Want to hook up your Tablet PC to an external monitor to mirror or extend your desktop? The DisplayPort video out on the Sahara Slate PC i500 delivers a true digital display experience at resolutions up to 2560 x 1600. With multiple display format support from a single connector, and optimized refresh rates, resolution and color depths, DisplayPort delivers the performance needed to get the most out today's technologies like Blu-Ray or advanced 3-D imaging. It is HDCP compliant, requires less energy than previous video technologies, and is compatible with monitors and projectors that use older technologies such as DVI, HDMI and VGA (using low cost, optional adapters and cables).

DisplayPort can run up to 15 meters (49.21 feet) without requiring signal boosters. This makes DisplayPort the perfect choice for conference room projectors, digital displays and remote PC applications. With lower EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) and RFI (Radio Frequency Interference) rates than other digital display interface technologies, DisplayPort is also ideally suited for the sensitive environments often used for Medical Imaging. Lastly, DisplayPort delivers every pixel directly to the display without compression providing the highest fidelity and most accurate image production possible.

Bigger Screen, Larger Desktop, Viewable Outdoors

The Sahara Slate PC i500 offers an indisputable edge for professionals looking to maximize work space real estate in an ergonomically designed mobile device. Featuring a full 12.1 inch, LED backlit LCD with 180° viewing angle and 1280x800 HD 16x9 wide screen display; spreadsheets, web pages and e-mail are easier to read while videos and photos look bright and crisp. Unlike traditional CFL displays, LED backlighting means you have a beautiful, full uniformly bright image that takes virtually no time to display. Lastly, with its AFFS+ SUN-BRITE™ sunlight enhanced display, you can use your Sahara Slate PC no matter where you go, inside or out.

Interact with Pen or Touch or Both

Tablet PCs with touch screens and digitizers offer a more ergonomic "on-the-go" computing experience than a standard laptop. Due to their unique form factor, slate-style tablets with these input screens reduce the space required to operate the computer when compared to systems using a traditional mouse, trackpad or keyboard. In addition, they offer a more natural and intuitive user interface experience, especially while standing up or walking around.

Active digitizers use a pen for input which offers mouse-like pointer interaction and support for Digital Inking Technology's highly accurate handwriting recognition and signature capture. Touch screens work simply with the input tool you've been using since you were born—a finger—allowing you to point to and tap on whatever you want to use. The Sahara Slate PC can be equipped with either of these screen technologies or both together in an intelligently designed panel that automatically senses which type of input you want to use and switches modes automatically for maximum convenience and efficiency.

The active digitizer for pen input on the Sahara Slate PC is manufactured by the world's leader in pen computing technology, Wacom. These digitizers are highly accurate, compatible with all leading imaging and design software, and are the number one choice of tablet input for artists and designers worldwide. Additionally, Wacom electromagnetic active digitizers do not require a battery powered pen to operate—like some other manufacturers' digitizers—which further supports true mobility in the field. Digitizers are a superior solution for detailed drawing, handwriting recognition and signature capture, and support adjustable pressure sensitivity for total flexibility.

Additionally, Sahara Slate PC i500 series are the only Tablet PCs available with a dual mode screen that features both an active digitizer along with either a passive resistive 5-wire touch screen (for maximum input flexibility and usability) or a projective capacitive touch screen (that supports feather light touch input and multi-touch capabilities). This means that you can standardize your installation on one Tablet PC platform and outfit each system with the type of screen that best fits your users' specific needs.

Virtually Unlimited Battery Power

Unlike consumer tablets that offer embedded, non-removable batteries, the Sahara Slate PC i500 uses two user-replaceable and rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries that are hot swappable. This means not only can you potentially run your Sahara Slate PC i500 continuously for a virtually unlimited amount of time, you don't even have to power down or put the system into hibernation mode to swap out used batteries for fresh, charged ones. Just like with a digital camera, pack some extra batteries with you on the road and you'll never have to worry about your system powering down at a critical point on your job, saving time, effort and maximizing productivity.

TabletKiosk Modular Expansion System

Extra features and peripherals used in specialized industries—such as hospitality, retail sales and healthcare—can really drive up the expense when purchasing a computer. Additionally, what works for one company might not work for another. So why should you pay for something you'll never need or use? That's why TabletKiosk launched its Modular Expansion System a few years ago and has migrated these same peripherals over to the new Sahara Slate PC i500.

With the TabletKiosk Modular Expansion System you have the option of integrating the add-on modules you need; such as a Magnetic Stripe Reader, 3G WWAN Data Module or 2D/1D Barcode Scanner. Additionally, the specifications of the TabletKiosk Modular Expansion port are available, at no cost, to partners who want to create their own custom modules. This means that even companies with a need for highly specific functionality can use a Sahara Slate PC to get the job done.

User Upgradeable Memory and Storage

Thought you had purchased your Sahara Slate PC with enough memory? Enough data storage? Discovered later that you didn't? Perhaps, you are now running more applications simultaneously than you had envisioned when you first made your purchase and you wish you had more system memory? Can't stand waiting for your system to boot up? Perhaps it's time to upgrade that hard drive to a much speedier Solid State Drive.

With consumer grade tablets you'd likely need to purchase a whole new system if you wanted more storage or memory. That quickly translates to unexpected costs and lower return on your investment. The Sahara Slate PC i500 features user accessible and upgradeable memory and storage, so doubling that 4.0 GB to 8.0 GB or swapping out that 500 GB HDD for a larger 1.0 TB HDD or even an ultra-fast Solid State Drive is no problem. Sahara Slate PCs are designed to scale to meet your increasing technological demands.

Quality, Reliability and Expert Service

As one of the original pioneers of true tablet technology, TabletKiosk has been selling enterprise class, slate-style Tablet PCs since 2003. The Sahara Slate PC i500 represents the fourth generation of the Sahara Slate PC brand. As enterprise class devices, Sahara Slate PCs are exceptionally stable and are designed to run reliably for many years. The average product lifecycle of a TabletKiosk device is 36 months (by comparison, the average lifecycle for many consumer devices ranges from 6 – 18 months). That means that if you deploy TabletKiosk systems today and decide to purchase additional units at a later date, you'll still be able to get the same model, minimizing additional IT expenses integrating and testing a whole new platform.

All Sahara Slate PCs undergo stringent quality control from the day they are originally built to the day they are shipped to the customer. This starts at the factory, where they are fabricated and then hand-assembled. Then, before leaving the factory, all units are subjected to both a hand inspection and 24 hour burn-in testing. They are then inspected again by our TabletKiosk QC staff in Taiwan before they are shipped to our warehouse in the United States.

Once in the US, all Tablet PCs are inspected for shipping damage and then configured to exact customer specifications. The units then undergo a final QC test before being packaged up and shipped through our authorized distribution channel.

Should customers encounter any technical issues with their Sahara Slate PC, they can call TabletKiosk's technical support team located in the corporate offices in Torrance, California to obtain assistance from a knowledgeable and courteous company employee. Support personnel work on TabletKiosk products, and only TabletKiosk products all day, every day. TabletKiosk does not outsource any of its support to third party help desk services. At TabletKiosk, our goal is to provide you with stellar, first class support for an excellent overall customer experience.
