Fourier Systems introduced the Nova5000, a new low-cost computer that aims to put technology into the hands of more students. The computer is battery-operated with a 7.5-inch, LCD color display. It comes with a touch-sensitive screen, USB ports, and runs on the Windows CE.NET platform. Its hardware design includes the integration of Fourier’s MultiLogPRO data logger and easily can accommodate other sensors, making it compatible with science or math mobile labs, the company said. Education pricing for the Nova5000 ranges from $399 to $599 per unit.
