Has anyone tried using laptops or notebooks for the computers for your pos system? Most have a vga connector usb ports and 10/100 network connection. You could connect the touch screen monitor just like on a desktop. The advantage would be size and the battery would act like a built in ups. You can buy the little notebooks they have now for about the price of a desktop. I am looking at getting Point of success and I just saw an ad today for one these and it got me thinking this way. the only drawback I see is that the laptops I have dealt with all seemed to run hotter which could be bad if you leave it on 24/7.
