  • The updated high-performance HP RP5, Model 5810, provides businesses with the flexibility to seamlessly control everything from the store floor to the back office, with performance capabilities to handle even the most demanding environments.

“In today’s dynamic marketplace, flexibility and reliability are critical for retailers and hospitality operators to meet the needs of their customers,” said Ray Carlin, vice president and general manager, Retail Solutions, HP. “The RP2 and RP5 deliver performance and functionality while being designed to withstand harsh retail and hospitality environments.”

  • Customization options: The HP RP2 gives business owners the ability to tailor the system with a choice of operating system and resistive- or capacitive-touch technology best suited to their unique environment as well as an expanded portfolio of configurable peripherals.(3)

Powerful performance, multi-purpose capabilities

The HP RP5 has had a long history of success in both retail and hospitality, with well over 1 million units deployed worldwide. The updated version, Model 5810, offers simple, low-cost management and security features that help protect customer data. Key features include:

(1) Provide proper ventilation per the user guide.

(2) Mounting hardware sold separately.

(3) Optional features sold separately or as add-on features.

(4) Multi-Core is designed to improve performance of certain software products. Not all customers or software applications will necessarily benefit from use of this technology. 64-bit computing on Intel architecture requires a computer system with a processor, chipset, BIOS, operating system, device drivers, and applications enabled for Intel 64 architecture. Processors will not operate (including 32-bit operation) without an Intel 64 architecture-enabled BIOS. Performance will vary depending on hardware and software configurations. Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance.

(5) Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux. With Windows 32-bit operating systems, memory above 3 GB may not all be available due to system resource requirements.
