Seneca Sets Starting Price For Its Rugged PC Sticks At $275

May 6, 2016 by Dave Haynes

seneca-HDs-media-stickSeneca has now launched and fixed a $275 USD starting price on its industrialized take on the notion of PCs on sticks.

The Seneca HDS media stick is ruggedized, fanless and will do a single output of 1080p HD at 60 frames per second. What sets it apart from less expensive PC sticks by Intel and Lenovo is a design built for more than home offices and backs of TVs, with a tougher housing, lock, and something a lot of systems integrators are going to like, an ethernet port (instead of just relying on WiFi to connect),

“Media sticks are often frowned upon for an enterprise installation for a myriad of reasons. Security, theft and failure rates are the most common complaints around media sticks in a digital signage environment,” says Jami McGraw, visual media product manager for Seneca. “Seneca solved this by engineering a media stick with features like a solid state, fanless design, Kensington lock and NIC port to position this media stick for enterprise installations.”

The $275 stick comes with Windows 10 IoT and also supports Linux.

    Based on the design and specs this looks identical to the PCG02 stick that MeLE have been shipping for a while. The only difference I can see is the storage. Is it the same hardware?

    Charbax often posts videos of boxes and sticks on his Arm Devices blog. Here is his one of the MeLE one.
