Acme rolls out new computer platform series

Comes with multiple PCI-e and PCI slots, allowing the installation of add-on cards

By CBR Staff Writer

Acme Portable Machines, a provider of rugged portable computers, has introduced the new Comrade series, a portable computer platform.

Acme said the new portable computer platform comes with a 17 wide screen LCD, dual Quad Core processors, DDR2 RAM, with drive bay spaces and expansion slots. It is suitable for applications like military and field operations, field service and diagnostic applications, forensic, and telecommunications.

The Comrade 300 comes with seven open expansion slots. The available multiple PCI-e and PCI slots allow the installation of the add-on cards to it. These add-on cards can be diagnostic cards for testing applications, data acquisition cards for sampling data in the field, and audio and video editing of files on filming locations, among many other configurations dependent on the users’ requirements.

Reportedly, every add-on card comes with a proprietary card hold-down plate with an access for upgrade, maintenance or reconfiguration.

The company said that the Comrade 400 and 500 provide the user with two 5.25 shock mounted open drive bays while the operating system is installed on an internal shock mounted 2.5” disk. A slot-loading DVD-RW is also included for additional media storage.
