Tangent to Unveil Computing Solutions Running Microsoft Vista OS

AUSTIN, TEXAS (February 2, 2007)–Tangent Inc., a leading developer of computing solutions for the educational market, will unveil a line of space saving Mini PCs and All-in-One Vita PCs running Microsoft Windows®Vista operating system at the 27th Annual Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) Convention & Exposition February 5-9.

Vista is of particular importance to Tangent because the new operating system incorporates touch screen technology, which is a key option in Tangent´s all-in-one VITA PCs.

The VITA line combines the PC and a 17, 19 or 22-inch LCD display inside a slim, attractive, all-in-one chassis that fits ergonomically into any educational environment.

"We are pleased to see that Vista offers broad support for touch and expands touch capabilities well beyond simple cursor movements," said Doug Monsour, Tangent´s CEO. "Our line of touch-equipped VITA´s allows people to do things not possible with ordinary computers, keyboards or tablets."

The Mini Pro line includes the Mini Pro 915, which features the Intel Pentium M processor, and the Mini Pro 945, which runs the Intel Core Duo processor. Both minis are power-optimized, mobile and versatile, and have a space saving small form factor (6.5 square inches).

Tangent backs its computing and security solutions with a one-year parts and labor warranty and one-year optional on-site service. All products are available direct from Tangent at
