Take a look at the various development stages in digital technology over the past few decades and you'll be struck by how many of them already seem like Stone-Age artifacts. Only the look of PCs seems to have escaped this evolutionary race. Indeed, most office computers still look largely the same as they did thirty years ago – a grey box secreted somewhere on or under the desk, with a tangle of cables sprouting from its rear and snaking all the way around the office in search of the relevant peripherals. Of course, there are already alternatives that are far more pleasing on the eye, but their cost or the lack of Windows compatibility often mean they aren’t an option for many companies. However, all that looks set to change thanks to hardware startup MODINICE and its M1.
On show at CeBIT 2016 for the first time, M1 from the developers in Munich is shaping up to be a sure-fire hit thanks to its refined design, Windows compatibility and most importantly attractive price. What makes this completely new office PC so different is that it combines the minimalist design of an all-in-one with the freedom to use multiple monitors. The MODINICE M1 designer PC runs Windows, has virtually no fans, is largely silent and finally puts paid to the tangle of cables that accompanies conventional office computers. Visitors interested in the new PC can scrutinize it at two stands – at Stand G72 in Planet Reseller, Hall 15, and at the German Innovation stand 33/27 in Hall 11.
