D&H Distributing Is Encouraging its VARs to Offer Compact, High-performance, Portable Desktop “Mini” Units that Save Energy, Space and Costs for SMB and Other Environments
D&H Distributing, the leading North American computer products and consumer electronics distributor, is assembling a growing line-up of small form factor (SFF) PCs from major partners including Acer, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Intel and Lenovo. Such small-profile machines offer a roster of benefits for small business environments, starting with competitive pricing and portability, with high performance on the same order as standard desktop computing. Such models offer a space saving footprint, lower energy consumption, less noise, and are highly customizable, allowing business owners to create versatile workspace configurations in compact quarters while still enjoying full-fledged capabilities.
This flexible format lends itself to applications such as digital signage, media production, retail kiosks, video surveillance systems and more. It is perfect for surroundings where a large-scale “tower” computer would be obtrusive and/or pose a risk of physical compromise if located in a public or otherwise accessible location. Markets including industry, public safety, utility and scientific research also stand to benefit from this versatile, inconspicuous yet sophisticated computing format.
Many models, such as the HP ProDesk 600 G1 Mini PC, the Gigabyte Brix Pro Mini, and the Intel Rock Canyon 5th Generation NUC, have premium Intel Core processors and powerful Intel solid state drives for speed, durability, easy manageability, and quiet operation. Yet they sport dimensions as minimal as 4 x 4 x 1 inch.
“Small form factor computers have a great deal to offer a small business, or any industry requiring an easily re-configured environment, yet where users are still looking to leverage full-power, permanent desktops in their workplaces,” said Jeff Davis, senior vice president of sales at D&H Distributing. “These units offer the best of both worlds, with rapid processing and a low-profile, space-saving design, often with a lesser footprint than even a tablet device. It affords the user a certain amount of portability similar to a mobile device. For the cost, and combined with other savings in space and energy, SFF models present a tremendous value.”
