King of Prussia, PA — (press release excerpt) — Neoware Systems today broadened its product portfolio with the release of the new, high performance Eon Professional Series and the introduction of the first product offering within the Eon Professional Series, the Eon Professional 4300. The Eon Professional 4300 is the first model in Neoware's Eon Professional Series and is targeted primarily as a next-generation product for IBM NetVista 2800 and N70 thin client customers.

The Eon Professional 4300 runs NeoLinux, an appliance version of the industry standard Red Hat Linux operating system that enables customers to add Linux applications locally for a variety of vertical markets. The Eon Professional Series is targeted primarily at IBM NetVista 2800 and N70 thin client users who are seeking next-generation products that are compatible with their installed base of IBM thin clients. Neoware's NeoLinux operating system and ezRemote Manager software are available for Neoware thin client appliances and the IBM NetVista 2800 and N70. This common software platform protects customer investments in their installed base by enabling them to upgrade their existing thin clients and deploy new Eon Professional thin client appliances that run and are managed with exactly the same software.

The Eon Professional 4300 is available immediately throughout the world from Neoware and IBM, with prices starting at $689 US.
