Axiomtek is shipping a new slim, industrial-grade panel computer said to offer excellent graphic performance. The PANEL2155-810-FL1GE features a 15-inch, high-brightness TFT LCD touchscreen, and is available preinstalled with Linux, Windows CE, or Windows XP Embedded.

Axiomtek says the device is aimed primarily at POI (point of information) and HMI (human machine interface) applications. With its 1 GHz ULV Intel Celeron M processor, it can operate without a fan.
