Acer's WT 300 provides commercial computer users with a distinct alternative to desktop PCs for networked Windows-environment applications. The WT 300 offers IT management, more than ever before, the opportunity for positive, worry-free and secure TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) control. The WT 300 owes a great deal of its ideal TCO solution to streamlined manageability. In the Acer WT 300 terminal server configuration, all of the files reside on the server machine. File control, software installation/upgrade, and user management all take place on the server, eliminating the need to administer client machines.

"The WT 300 is part of Acer's total solution to customers who need easy-to-use and -manage client environments", said Cliff Chou, Senior Director of Acer's Network Product Development Division. "As well as enabling graphic terminal emulation in the Windows NT environment, Ericom's PowerTerm WBT also provides Acer's WT 300 with a rich set of traditional features. This superior level of performance is leading more and more customers to choose the WT 300 as their terminal solution".
