MICROS reaffirms its commitment to providing industry leading Point-of-Sale hardware with the new Workstation 5 (WS5). Building on the successful legacy WS4 and along side the next generation WS4 LX, the WS5 demonstrates MICROS's unique ability to design rugged, affordable hardware that is easy to install and maintain, intuitive to use, and extremely reliable. The all new WS5 features a powerful processor running the latest Microsoft Windows Embedded operating systems and a large, bright 15 touchscreen display. Other impressive characteristics include standard stereo speakers, 1G networking, MICROS CAL, and an advanced operating system recovery utility. The use of flash memory and passive cooling reduces the risk of costly mechanical failures, and improves system reliability and uptime. Improved I/O connectivity, a new, easy to use adjustable stand, and many modular options make the WS5 highly configurable and ready for use in a wide range of applications.
