Whether for self-service kiosks, table-side order taking, remote systems control, or even just browsing the web and checking e-mail on the road, the Sahara NetSlate™ a230T slate-style Tablet PC, powered by the Intel® Atom™ N270 processor, is the smart networked computer that won’t limit your productivity or stifle your sense of mobility.

The Sahara NetSlate™ a230T features a full 12.1-inch wide-view TFT XGA LCD with resistive touch screen, dual channel WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n networking, optional 3G/3.5G built-in WWAN module, Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR and is available with your choice of Windows® 7 Professional, Windows® Embedded or openSUSE® Linux.


  • Intel® Atom™ N270 Processor for longer battery life while running cooler.

  • 1.0 GB RAM (upgradable to 2.0 GB) and a 120GB HDD standard (64GB or larger SSD drive optional) for running Windows® 7 Professional, Windows® Embedded or OpenSUSE™ Linux.

  • Built-in Dual-Band Wi-Fi® 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth® 2.1+EDR and optional 3G/3.5G WWAN module means you can stay connected no matter where you go.

  • Built on the same 12.1-inch form factor, the a230T is compatible with all accessories for the Sahara Slate PC® i400 series Tablet PCs. This means integration into an existing installation is seamless, requiring no peripheral or mounting solution upgrades.

  • Single-Chip Trusted Platform Module (TPM) for added data security.

  • All this for hundreds less than the Sahara Slate PC® i400 series Tablet PCs, for when you don't need all the features or dual core power the i400s offer.
