"Just as Citrix Systems leads the industry in thin-client software technology, Wyse Technologies dominates the Windows-based terminal (WBT) market...Wyse is on the cutting edge of "thinnovation" with its Winterm 5355SE, a device that combines the features of a WBT with the flexibility of a desktop computer running the Linux OS. At the top of the feature list is the 5355SE's ability to support a local browser, a capability that eludes mainstream WBTs running Microsoft Windows CE..."

"For organizations that are high on thin-client computing but need more power than Windows CE has to offer, the 5355SE has great potential..."

"...Aside from slightly beefier memory capacity on the 5355SE--16-MB Flash and 40-MB RAM compared to 8-MB Flash and 16-MB RAM on the 3350--the boxes are identical. Powered by a National Semiconductor 200-MHz Media GX processor, this system is neatly designed and well-equipped, sporting 10/100 Ethernet, fast 1,280 x 1,024 video, dual serial ports, a parallel port, audio in and out, dual USB ports and a Type II PC Card slot."
