Pipo shows their X7 TV Box which they say is getting a lot of traction at the moment, from people who want a cheap Intel x86 based desktop. It uses the Intel Atom Z3736F processor with 2GB RAM runs Windows 8.1. It is selling for about $100 in China as the retail price. The price exported to other countries may be a bit different. Pipo founder Ben Lai tried to do this project 15 years ago, but the hardware was too expensive costing more than $200-$300, now he says that the ecosystem is better for this product to become popular. They are considering to dual-boot Android or perhaps ship it running Chrome OS, as the Windows licence is about $25.

Arne Weber takes us on a tour through the factory operation of faytech Tech. Co. Ltd., a touchscreen manufaturer in Shenzhen he has been running with his wife for more than 5 years. This is the second time I am visiting them and faytech has greatly progressed since my last visit.
The video starts on the rooftop of the faytech factory in Hongmen Technology Park. We see a comparison of faytech´s standard 10” touchscreen PC, a high brightness waterproof 10.4” touchscreen PC and an optical bonded transflective 17.3” model for crisp clear picture even under direct sunlight. The tour continues showing the factory highlights: optically bonded resistive touchscreen panels, faytech´s new capacitive 15” touchscreen PC with Intel´s E3800 series and an explanation of their new A20 based embedded mainboard for industrial customers. We also see the equipment that faytech invested in over the last year like a temperature room, a vibration and gluing machine and a dust free clean room improving faytech´s in-house capability of touchscreen and high brightness panel handling.
The tour ends with a ball drop test showing that optical bonded touch panels don’t just have a better viewing angle, reflection and color characteristics but are also far more resistant against damages. You can read more about faytech at http://www.faytech.com
